Is there a way that I can make my eyes feel less tired and get energy without sleeping?

Is there a way that I can make my eyes feel less tired and get energy without sleeping?

Yes: If the fatigue come from constant near focusing, try the 20/20 rule: look up at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. This allows the focusing mechanism to relax and distribute tears - relieving stress. Also, artificial tears can help a lot. Plus, make sure your glasses are the clearest they can be. ...Read more

I've been really tired for the last few months, i've gotten bags under my eyes. My sleep schedule has not change from before so what could it be?

Bags under eyes: Dark bags under eyes are often due to: fluid from thin blood vessels under eyes. This can be due to genetics (got it from mom or dad), excess rubbing (shiners), allergies, excess salt; be sure kidney function is normal. Cold ice packs might help decrease bags by constricting blood vessels. See an eyemd if no improvement. Some patients need to have excess skin removed. Eyedoc2020.Blogspot.Com. ...Read more

I sometimes have hallucinations when I close my eyes, usually before sleep. Most often this happens when I am sick, or tired. Am I a mental case?

I sometimes have hallucinations when I close my eyes, usually before sleep.  Most often this happens when I am sick, or tired. Am I a mental   case?

No you are NOT: Sleep consists of multiple stages & cycles. A typical sleep cycle starts with transition from wake to stage N1, then stage N2, stage N3 & then REM. Stage 1 is the lightest stage & anyone awaken from it do not perceive that they were actually asleep. You feel hallucinations when you wake up from stage N1. It is normal. But for obese person it could be an early sign of obstructive sleep apnea. ...Read more

Sleep: I think you have asked and answered your own question. I don't know what your usual normal amount of sleep is, but with the exams I assume it is more than what you are getting. You need to get some sleep at your earliest chance. ...Read more

I get a good amount of sleep. Why do my eyes look tired?

I get a good amount of sleep. Why do my eyes look tired?

They only look it: What we see as tired eyes are often "puffy" eyelids that have dark circles under them. This can be the way your eyelids naturally look, or they could slowly take on this appearance over time. Excess eyelid skin, especially on the upper eyelids, can make the eyes appear more closed. There may be treatment options for this, so if it bothers you, consider meeting with an eye doctor to discuss it. ...Read more

I get a good amount of sleep, so why do my eyes look tired?

I get a good amount of sleep, so why do my eyes look tired?

Leaky blood vessels: The dark, heavy look to eyelids, especially lower eyelids, is often caused by collections of blood vessels. These vessels can be a little "leaky", causing fluid to collect under the skin, which in turn gives the dark circle appearance. After years, some individuals also develop increased pigmentation, which enhances the appearance. If this is a new appearance, see an eye doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Sleep paralysis: During the normal dreaming phase of sleep called REM SLEEP, the closed eyes dart around but the body is unable to move. This probably protects us from acting out our dreams. If you wake up during this phase and cannot move, it can be frightening or terrifying, especially if a dream is still going on!! Maintain healthy sleep habits and try wiggling your fingers and toes. It may help. ...Read more
