Eye Irritation, Myopia, and More
When your eyes feel irritated, your mind often settles on something external to the structure of the eye as the cause. Maybe dust got into your eyes, or you're tired and have been staring at a book for too long. Internal issues can also lead to irritation if your eyes can't see clearly, however. When you have a vision issue like myopia, your eyes can suffer from strain and fatigue, making them feel irritated. Eyes & Optics in Las Vegas, NV, can help you find and treat the cause of any eye irritation you may have.
Irritation Doesn't Always Have an External Physical Cause
While a lot of eye irritation is due to things like allergies, dry eye, illness, and so on, it can also be the result of fatiguing situations where your eyes struggle to focus. If you have untreated myopia, for example, then when you try to look at things that are farther away, you're going to end up straining your eyes and possibly creating a situation where you don't blink as much as you try to make blurry sights clearer.
Myopia and Myopia Control
We can provide atropine eyedrops for myopia control but sometimes all a person needs is eyeglasses or contacts. Regular eye care, including having regular eye exams, allows our optometrist to find signs of myopia and other vision conditions early on. If you get glasses or contacts with a prescription to correct for the myopia, your eyes will have an easier time focusing, and suffer less strain and irritation as a result.
Get Help Finding the Cause of Your Eye Strain and Irritation
It may be a good idea to not assume you know the cause of eye irritation and fatigue unless you have a good idea of what is causing it. For example, if you get shampoo in your eye. If your eyes feel irritated and tired in general, especially of you feel like you can't focus well, go see our optometrist for an eye exam. The cause of your eye irritation might be more than just dry eye or myopia.
