Tired eyes : This could be due to dry eyes. Using artificial tears, taking breaks from intense computer work or reading, may also alleviate some of the strain. A good exam with an eye doctor will help you uncover any other issues.

Dry eyes: There can be many reasons, however the most common reason 99% of time would be dry eyes or ocular surface disease.
Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Time for eye exam: Tired eyes are often a sign of either dry eyes or eye strain. Both can be related to long hours spent on a repetitive near task (like being on the computer for hours) and can also be caused by a need fro prescription glasses. Occasional blurred vision can be related to dry eyes or prescription changes also. You would be well off having an eye exam to be sure.

A member asked:

My baby has itchy eyes and continues to rub them. Does this mean that she has allergies?

Pediatrics 32 years experience
Maybe: Itchy eyes are a very common allergy sign. Infants can sometimes rub their eyes when they are tired as well. If you see other signs of allergy, such as sneezing, runny nose and tearing of the eyes, consult your doctor. If the whites of your baby's eyes become very red, or if there is a thick mucous discharge, call your pediatrician (this may be a sign of infection).

No: If your diabetes and associated medical problems (e.g. Hypertension, cholesterol) are kept in control and managed appropriately, you should not lose your sight and develop failing kidneys.

Dr. Paul Cohen
Family Medicine 28 years experience
No: All human eyes have a 'pressure' within them called the intraocular pressure. This pressure can be measured with a device called a tonometer. When the number goes near or above 20, usually a diagnosis of glaucoma is considered. This exam is usually performed by an opthalomologist. If you are contemplating this for yourself, you should seek one out.
