Best Eye Drops For Computer Strain
If prolonged use: One of the main ingredients is Tetrahydrozoline HCI (0.05%) which is also found in Visine and other "get the red out" drops. Its a vasoconstrictor (ergo eyes seem to whiten), and occasional use is okay. However prolonged use can cause rebound effect and can make the situation worse. ...Read more
Yes, yes, yes!: To use a computer monitor, you need the ability to accommodate or focus up close. Presbyopia is common and can be completely alleviated by use of glasses. Plus, lens tiniting can be used to reduce glare and improve contrast. See you ophthalmologist for a full evaluation and refraction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Serum tears: There are many otc and rx drops that work best for different sources of dry eye (as mentioned in the other answers). One of the best, though, is for severe dry eyes to make tears from your own serum. Blood is drawn, allowed to clot, centrifuged, diluted with saline, and given back to the patient. In cases that do not respond to the available treatments, this option should be discussed with md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is eye accommodative spasm? Had lasik for myopia. Can see small print, but distance vision goes blurry after computer. Any fix for this?
"Stiff Focusing": Accomodative inertia/spasm. As we get older, the flexible lens in our eye that is responsible for focusing at various distances becomes "stiff". Many patients as they reach age 40 will notice that it takes more effort to see at near. Some who can muster enough focusing power for near work will have trouble relaxing their focusing muscles to see at distance. Frequent breaks/ weak reading glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See your eye doctor.: Better to see your eye doctor to determine the cause of the red eye prior to resorting to an over the counter (otc) drop for red eyes. You may require a prescription medication. In my opinion, there is no "best" otc drop for red eyes. When i see a patient that complains of red eyes and has been using an otc drop for red eyes, i generally cringe. Otc drops for red eyes in excess can get the red in. ...Read more
Yes: For people with presbyopia (difficulty with focusing closely), readers can work wonders. What they cannot address however are differences in focus between the eyes or astigmatism. For many people however, otc readers work great and are inexpensive. For the ultimate clarity, see your ophthalmologist and try some custom glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please explain the best way to use eye drops for glaucoma. Leave eyes shut for 2 minutes putting drop in eye?
Can see videos: Online. But best way is whatever gets a single drop into the eye (cul-de-sac or lid lake without touching the bottle to the lid or contaminating tip) without missing the eye either, followed by keeping the eye closed or covering the tear duct for a minute or two to keep the medicine from exiting the lacrimal tear drain. Use the medicine regularly and at correct intervals within reason. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can wearing an eye patch, closing one eye, improve vision and minor eye lag/lazy eye in other eye? How much training would it take to improve
Possibly: If you had patching when you were an infant and a young child, then your eyes (each alone) may have reached their best potential vision by age eight. The vision can then drop in one of the eyes and be brought up to its best 8 year old level when you are older. If the vision was poor by age eight, then you are out of luck. ...Read more
Was using FML (fluorometholone) eye drops, Bion tears at same time for inflammed eye.Told to stop after a week, eye is no better. Can 2 eye drops be used at same time.
Yes, wait 10 min.: Yes, 2 different eye drops can be used around the same time, but wait at least 10 minutes between one dose and the next. Also, if your eye is no better after a week on the above drops you need to call your eye doctor and arrange for a follow up visit to see why you're not getting better. Do this ASAP. ...Read more
UV burn: Welder's flash is a uv burn of the corneal skin like a sunburn on your regular skin. It is quite painful although topical anesthetics can take away much of that. However these inhibit healing and are not advised except for diagnostic purposes. Thorough and frequent lubrication is usually used along with systemic analgesics and sometimes bandage contact lenses. These heal quickly fortunately. ...Read more
