nausaus and dizzy at work I sit at a com for 8 hrs and eye strain. I'm fine at home o weekends do u think that's the cause or something that needs ex?

A problem at work: That resolves on the weekend could be many things. You might consume more caffeine at work. There may be more stress at work. You may have issues related to lighting, eye strain, or chemical / mold exposure at work. The fact that this occurs at work and not at home is the key. Now you need to start thinking like a detective to sort this out. If you can't figure it out talk to your PCP. ...Read more

Can reading on a smartphone too often cause dizziness/headache due to eye strain? My vision is 20/10 however gets blurry when focusing on small items

When I look at the sunlight, I get really dizzy and my eyes start to strain. Is this normal?

When I look at the sunlight, I get really dizzy and my eyes start to strain. Is this normal?

Yes: Yes. You are experiencing ciliary spasm. The normal ocular response to light is pupillary constriction, in order to limit the amount and intensity of light entering the eye, so as to protect the internal structures of the eye from the toxic effects of ultraviolet wavelengths which damage cells and dna. In normal ambient room light, the pupillary constriction is a gentle reaction. If you suddenly go out into broad daylight, you may feel that sensation of glare and immediately squint your eyes in order that your eyelids may help limit light entry. If you look directly at a bright light source such as the sun, your pupils will quickly and suddenly constrict, less gently than in room light. The force of this constriction strains the internal ocular muscles, the ciliary body which are responsible for constricting the pupil. This sudden effort causes spasm and strain which may also cause photophobia and headache. This is all a normal part of your body’s involuntary attempts to protect you. ...Read more

Can a pinch nerve in the neck or crown of skull cause dizziness? Strained neck heard a pop doesn't hurt but very annoying. Lower back of head tender.

If the dizziness doesn't clear expeditiously, I would make an appointment to see a neurologist and have it thoroughly checked out. ...Read more
