Your eyes are tired... A pharmacist explains how to choose the right eye drops for each symptom. A pharmacist explains how to choose the right eye drops for each symptom!
Hello, I am a pharmacist. I am not sure what eye drops you recommend for tired eyes and eyestrain, and I am not sure what to choose. Our pharmacist will tell you the answer.
In our modern life where we often overuse our eyes due to computers and smartphones, we may have experienced that our eyes get tired in the evening and we cannot concentrate.
It is difficult to know what kind of eye drops to choose, since there are various symptoms such as redness, blurred vision, dryness, and other symptoms of fatigue.
In this article, we will discuss the key points to consider when choosing effective products.
Eye fatigue is caused by fatigue of the muscles around the eyes and the muscles that adjust the focus when looking at an object. When you stare at a computer or smartphone screen for a long time or continue to do detailed work, the ciliary muscle, which is responsible for adjusting the focus, becomes tired and fatigued.
Other symptoms such as presbyopia and autonomic nervous system disorders can also cause eye fatigue. Symptoms such as pain in the back of the eyes, bloodshot eyes, and blurred vision can occur, and if they become severe, they can lead to headaches, stiff shoulders, nausea, etc. To prevent these symptoms, it is recommended to take frequent rests, distance yourself from screens such as computers, and increase your awareness.
To prevent these symptoms, it is effective to take frequent rests, to keep a short distance from computer screens, and to consciously increase the number of times you blink your eyes, but eye drops are even more effective.
Here are three things to check when choosing eye drops.
The first one. We will introduce specific ingredients to check for fatigue and eyestrain and the types of ingredients to counteract such fatigue and eyestrain, so that you can choose eye drops that contain these ingredients when selecting eye drops.
First, be careful with vasoconstrictors. They should only be used in emergency situations. By constricting blood vessels, vasoconstrictors can suppress conjunctival redness.
However, this does not mean that suppressing bloodshot does not also mean that eye fatigue will improve. It may temporarily remove the redness, but when the effect wears off, the redness may conversely become worse.
Improves the ability to regulate the focus of the eye
An ingredient that improves the ability of the eye to regulate focus is neostigmine methyl sulfate. It is effective in improving the ciliary muscle function that regulates the focus of the eye.
For those who suffer from difficulty in focusing, etc., we recommend products containing these ingredients.
You want to keep your eyes moist and relieve fatigue. If so, choose a product that contains vitamin a.
By keeping your eyes moist, you can alleviate eye fatigue and eyestrain. Specific ingredients include vitamin a and ethyl sodium chondroitin sulfate, which retains tears. It is best to choose a product that contains these ingredients.
Next, you should also choose those that contain anti-inflammatory and nourishing ingredients. Ingredients such as dipotassium glycyrrhizate and epsilon-aminocaproic acid can be expected to reduce inflammation and hyperemia.
Also, there are ingredients that nourish the eyes: taurine, vitamin b 6, and vitamin b 12. These ingredients help to improve nerve function when the eyes are fatigued and help to recover from eye fatigue, so it is important to keep them in mind as well.
Now let's also check if the second point contacts are ok
When you are using contact lenses, your eyes are often quite tired. To ensure that preservatives and other ingredients in eye drops do not affect them, it is necessary to check if the drops can be used while using contact lenses.
The package or description section of the product will state whether or not it is compatible with contact lenses, so be sure to check before purchasing.
Some products may not be compatible with hard contact lenses, so please be careful.
Third: Check the comfort of the drops
There are various types of eye drops with strong or mild coolness, so if you want to refresh your eyes, we recommend you choose cool-type eye drops with strong coolness.
If you are not fond of such things, there are mild types, so choose whichever you prefer.
I will now tell you about some over-the-counter eye drops that I recommend. The first is Rohto Premium.
These eye drops contain essential oil in the solution, which gives a refreshing and refreshing sensation to the eyes. Allantoin, vitamin b6, panthenol, and 12 other active ingredients are used in these eye drops to treat modern-day eye problems such as fatigue and blurred vision.
Another feature of these eye drops is that they contain a high concentration of ingredients that improve the function of focusing.
What did you think? Did you find any hints for choosing eye drops that are effective for your own tired eyes?
It is important to take care of your eyes on a daily basis with eye drops that suit you. If you feel discomfort or fatigue in your eyes, try using over-the-counter eye drops as soon as possible.
If you keep the following tips in mind on a daily basis, you can minimize the accumulation of fatigue in your eyes
There are seven points in all.
The first is to rest your eyes for about 10 minutes for every hour of work.
Second, do eye exercises and massages.
