or Tired Eyes
eyes are designed to be used all of our waking
hours. However, how we use them and under what
conditions can affect how well they perform as
well as how they feel.
Using a computer on a full time basis is a very
intensive visual task. It requires accurate focusing
and coordination from our eyes for long periods
and can lead to tiring. However, another condition,
known as convergence insufficiency can also lead
to this tiring sensation. When our eyes need to
see close objects, they must turn in toward each
other to make the images of each eye align properly
with each other. This process is known as convergence.
If our visual system has difficulty performing
this task, it will be a strain on the eye muscles
and the feeling of tiredness will
by a symptom.
A complete eye examination is required to determine
if this condition exists. There may be glasses
or vision exercises prescribed to help to resolve
the problem. The good news is that it can be overcome
very easily with the proper treatment.
