The Eyes

2 min read

There are various important organs in our human architecture, one of them is our EYES. It’s proved that two-thirds of information stored in the brain has been conveyed through vision as opposed to other senses like smell, taste and hearing. We just can not imagine how suffering our life can be if we lose this organ. We just see the world with our eyes. Most of the perception comes from vision. So, we must give attention to our eyes especially in this era when majority of people are engaged in computers or simple computer screen.


If we spend more than a few hours in computer, we may suffer from computer vision syndrome and yes it’s been given a technical label. Commonly the symptoms are eye strain, eye fatigue, dry eyes, blur vision, eyes burning, insensitivity to light, headaches etc. All these problems can lead from insufficient tear flow to the eyes, too much glare and reflection from the monitor. When looking at a computer screen you tend to blink 2 to 3 times less than normal, which causes your eyes to rebel. Using lubricating eye drops or tear replacements (Genteal, Moisol) can provide relief.


This is the condition of eyes in which the cornea is not sufficiently moistened, it is not easily diagnosed. Contact lens wearers, excessive computer users, post menopausal women and people with arthritis are sufferers. There is no exactly known care for this, but one can alleviate it with artificial tear drops. But one can prevent this condition by drinking plenty of water or fluids, avoid drafts from radiators and air conditioners, protect eyes from windy, dusty, dirty environment.


This is described as the chronic inflammation of the oil glands of the eyelids. Its painless lumps sits close to the eyelid margin, usually in the upper lid. To remove this, hot compresses is useful or need to visit ophthalmologist for quick procedure.


This condition in eye is an inflammation of the thin transparent mucous membranes that cover the whites of the eye and doubles back to line the eyelids. Conjunctivitis are of two types–allergic and infectious, which can be bacterial or viral (pink eye)- both causes eyes to water, itch, feel gritty, swell and emit watery discharge. Allergic conjunctivitis is caused by cosmetics, dust, dirt, smoke, strong shampoo, contact lens and can be treated with simple anti allergy drops (like Andre eye drops) while bacterial conjunctivitis responds remarkably to antibiotics ointment or drops such as soframycin or gentamycin. To prevent this, the major action is to always keep the eyes clean, do not expose to direct dust and dirty environment. If you use contact lens, make sure it’s cleaned and do not use too much eye cosmetics which can cause infection.
