Computer Use And Eye Pressure
Seems like massaging eyes with my palms relieves computer eye strain or fatigue. But is it actually harmful? E.g, eye pressure, cornea damage, etc?
Not harmful: Computer eye strain is almost always due to eye dryness from sustained working. A palm massage will not do any harm and serves to spread the tears over the dry eye to relieve the strain. You can also treat this by using lubricating eyedrops when you feel the strain or fatigue. ...Read more
Does having sex, watching tv and using the computer increase eye pressure for ocular hypertension patient under medication and observation?
No effect: These activities in the normal way do not have any effect on intraocular pressure or the progression of ocular hypertension.

I feel strange pressure on my neck and head often when under little stress. Taking Prozac (fluoxetine) 20mg since few years. Am 30yr male. Can this be due to computer usage. Also have this feeling in morning?
Maybe: If you are hunched over at a monitor all day long with poor posture, you may want to rearrange your monitor and work station to improve your posture, however, it could also be due to anxiety and muscle tension, and muscle cramping. You may also want to consider a weekly or every other week neck and shoulder massage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I spend between 12-14 hrs on computer. Eyes jump to the top & then i center them. Occurs only during/after computer use. Is it nystagmus? No shaking.

Computer use doesn't cause your eyes to cross. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dry eye: Your eyes are getting dry while you are using the computer. Instead of massaging your eyes, try using artificial tears and taking a short break if possible.

Not at all: Cataracts are a normal aging change that everyone eventually gets. Certain types of eye surgeries may speed up the development of cataracts. However, computer monitors do not increase the risk of cataracts or other eye conditions (expect possibly dry eyes caused by excessive staring without blinking). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The preservatives in artificial tears are making my eyes tire more quickly from computer use. Hope this can be undone by switching, ie, not permanent?
Why does only my right eye always feel strained after lasik? 20/20 vision. Feels tender under they upper eyelid. Especially after computer use.
Staring too long: When we stare at an object, we do not blink as often as normal. This can dry out the eyes, which can cause irritation and pain. As well, the light from computer monitors can be mildly irritating. Lastly, if you need prescription glasses or readers and are not wearing the right prescription or strength glasses, it will cause additional strain and irritation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
