4 common eye symptoms and their causes.

Your eyes are a crucial part of your connection with other people. When your eyes don’t look right, you feel self-conscious, unattractive and lack confidence to face the world.

Fortunately, many common eye disorders clear up without treatment or can be managed by self-treating.1

Common eye symptoms and their causes:

1. Strained eyes. Anyone who spends long hours at a computer, reading or driving long distance can experience eyestrain. Eyestrain happens when you overuse your eyes.2

2. Tired eyes. Anything that requires intense eye use can cause tired eyes. The most common causes are reading, writing and driving. If you spend time in a poorly lit place or look at bright light, it can also cause eye fatigue.3

3. Itchy eyes. Itchy eyes could be due to allergy. Like all allergies, eye allergies happen when your body overreacts to something. The immune system makes antibodies that cause your eyes to release histamine, which causes itching and red, watery eyes. Some triggers are seasonal like pollen and others are perennial like dust mites.4

4. Red eyes. The surface of the eye is covered in blood vessels. These vessels expand when they get irritated or infected. Eyestrain can also cause red eyes, as well as late nights, lack of sleep and allergies.
