Slight area of eye is red after gaming. What causes this?

Slight area of eye is red after gaming. What causes this?

Eye irritation: Computer use and prolonged reading is associated with a reduced blink rate.

When conjunctiva is less lubricated it can become inflamed-thus a red eye. Use some lubricating eye drops prior to and during these gaming stints. ...Read more

Everytime I play video games. Drinking water helps but I keep getting a headache wierd feeling. I'm a gamer. What can this be? How can I stop this

Too much video?: How many hours per day are you playing video games? The headache could be due to eye strain, or tension from the intensity of the game. Are you able to cut back on how much you play? If not, is it because of an occupational requirement? If it isn't an occupational requirement could you be addicted? I suggest scheduling a consultation to explore further. Best wishes. ...Read more

Every: Every fracture has what we call a "personality". Some are very stable and require little immobilization. Others are unstable and require casting or surgery. The treatment is partially determined by the fracture location and pattern and partially to your age and activities.

Most bony healing takes about 6 weeks, though some bones, like the tibia, take significantly longer. Usually we want to see evidence of bone healing on x-rays before allowing unrestricted motion of a broken bone.
