How to Relieve Tired Eyes

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

My eyes always seem to be really tired and often comes with sinus and headache due to an extended period of time on a computer. Computer related eye problems are often recognized as a separate entity called the "Computer Vision Syndrome" or CVS. Doctor said I'm spending too much time staring at the computer screen and that is why my eyes are becoming tired all the time. He advised me try to have regular screen breaks at least every hour and at least try and look away from the screen for two minutes before carrying on with any work. This will give the eyes a break for a little while and therefore they will not be as tired.

Self-massage is good to relieve tired eyes. It relieves tired eyes by increasing circulation to the eye area. With eyes closed, place your thumbs under your eyebrows, starting at the inside corner of each eye socket. Press and gently move the thumbs in tiny circles, working slowly towards the outsides of your eyebrows and continuing this movement all around your eyes, ending back at the bridge of your nose. Repeat this several times.

There is also a little exercise you could try which includes holding a finger up close to your eye, then slowly pulling it away from you as you focus on it. After your finger has got a little distance away from the face, focus your attention on something which is at least eight feet away from you. Repeat this on the other eye and you should find that your eyes feel a little more awake.

For home remedies, what you can do is to place 2 teaspoons in your freezer and take them out after a few minutes. Place the cool metal on your eyes for a few minutes to feel relieved. Another simple method involves using used tea bags on your eyes. It will help to soothe your eyes and take care of the darkening under the eyes as well.
