Eye Fatigue

With age come natural changes to the eyes, such as the muscles that control focusing becoming more rigid, and a general difficultly to see things up close. This combination of factors manifests itself in eye fatigue and a general feeling of overtiredness, especially for those who work on computers.

“People may not even attribute it to their eyes,” says Dr. Daryan Angle, IRIS Optometrist. “Often times they just feel tired and they think it may be something else but it’s actually is the fact that the eye muscles aren’t able to take the load of what you’re looking at up close anymore because of natural aging changes.”

Eye fatigue can easily be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or laser eye surgery. Taking frequent breaks if you’re working in front of the computer can also help to relieve fatigue throughout the day.

Signs and causes of vision loss

Shine from Yahoo Canada
August 1, 2012

Vision is one of the most crucial senses. Since the majority of eye disease has no symptoms in its early stages, and you can still have 20/20 vision even with an undiagnosed condition, we spoke to an expert to find out some early warning signs to be mindful of. Keep in mind that by the time you’re experiencing symptoms, you’re usually in the later stage of the eye disease and it’s difficult to regain vision at that point. That’s why it’s so important to get regular checkups when you’re healthy and seeing well because if something is caught in the early stages, vision loss can often be prevented. -- by Caitlin McCormack
