When a person has eye strain, they can actually have trouble seeing clearly, and even get headaches. Our optometrist, Dr. Thomas J. Mirabile, will be able to examine your eyes and determine the cause of your headaches and eye strain. Many times, when a patient has eyestrain it is because they are not wearing eyeglasses, or their eyeglass prescription is not up-to-date. This problem can be easily remedied by our optometrist who will provide you with an eye exam which includes an assessment of your visual acuity. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you will be able to have your vision corrected with a new eyeglass lens prescription or contact lenses. When you are experiencing eye strain, you also may have eyes that are burning and itchy. Whenever you are doing anything that requires intense use of the eyes, you can develop eye strain or headaches. Some common causes of Mt. Pleasant eye strain are reading in poor lighting conditions or driving when lighting conditions are poor. Today, many people experience eye strain because they use a computer for too long a time. Gaming systems or smart phones also cause eyestrain when they are used for long periods of time. Our eye doctor will be able to prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses for you which will reduce your eye strain, as well as give you additional pointers on how to avoid developing eyestrain. Symptoms of eyestrain can include irritated eyes, dry or watery eyes, blurred vision, double vision, increased sensitivity to light, or a pain in the neck or shoulders. If you have dry eyes, you can also develop eye strain problems. Dry eye can be easily treated at our vision practice with prescription eye drops.

Mt. Pleasant eye strain is anything but pleasant. Although eye strain is uncomfortable, it does not typically lead to any eye damage. However, it is quite literally a headache. Eye strain occurs when your eyes get tired from intense use, such as driving a car, reading, or working at a computer for an extended period of time. Although eye strain is annoying, it usually isn’t serious, and once you rest your eyes it will go away. However, if your eyes are strained regularly, it may be indicative of an underlying eye condition that needs treatment at 3D Optometry.

The symptoms of eye strain are blurring, headaches, and occasionally double vision. Mt. Pleasant eye strain occurs through the concentrated use of the eyes for visual tasks. Some people when concentrating visually unconsciously clench the muscles in their eyelids, face, temples, and jaws, leading to discomfort or even pain from the use of those muscles. This may lead to tensing the muscles further and causing additional distress. At 3D Optometry, we recommend that you rest your eyes as soon as possible once you begin experiencing the symptoms of eye strain.

If the systems of eye strain persist, we recommend that you make an appointment with us at 3D Optometry. Your eyes may be repeatedly strained because you’re in need of glasses and your eyes are overworking to compensate. We also may be able to help you identify what factors are contributing to your repeated Mt. Pleasant eye strain, such as insufficient sleep, being under immense stress, and certain medications. Once the cause is identified, we can envision solutions for you – without additional strain on you.
