Autumn dryness can’t hurt your eyes just by dropping medicine! 3 moves to prevent dry eyes from inside out

Abstract: it should be emphasized that the common manifestations of patients with dry eye are similar to conjunctivitis and may be misdiagnosed. Therefore, the long-term application of anti-inflammatory eye drops will not only fail to treat dry eye, but also aggravate the condition of dry eye.

the dry climate in late autumn will make the human body present a “dry” image, such as dry skin, itchy throat, dry mouth, dry cough, constipation and other discomfort, even the eyes can not be spared. As the moisture in the eyes evaporates faster than that in other seasons, it is easy to cause dryness and discomfort in the eyes. Ophthalmologists believe that in autumn, people prone to dry eye disease should pay more attention to eye care and eye hygiene, so as not to make a comeback of “dry eye disease”.

dry eye is one of the most common diseases in ophthalmology clinic. It is caused by insufficient tear secretion or excessive evaporation of tears, resulting in the inability of tears to properly keep the surface of the eye moist. The patient’s eyes have dry feeling, foreign body feeling, burning feeling, photophobia, tears, blurred vision, redness and other phenomena. Autumn is a high incidence season of dry eye. Wang Yan, an ophthalmologist in charge of Guangdong Hospital of traditional Chinese medicine, pointed out that prevention and treatment can be carried out from the following three aspects.

basic maintenance

fumigate eyes with hot tea steam

Wang Yan said that usually after we make tea with boiling water, we can fumigate eyes with hot tea steam, so as to achieve the purpose of preventing dry eye. It can also stimulate the secretion of lacrimal gland by massage, hot compress and other methods. Change the habit of using eyes and rest regularly. It is recommended to rest for a few minutes after using eyes for 30 minutes. Do not watch the computer, TV or mobile phone for a long time. Blink from time to time to alleviate the dryness of the eyes.

drug treatment of

artificial tears can not cure dry eye.

patients with severe dry eye must go to the hospital and use eye drops under the advice of doctors to moisturize dry eyes. Patients with mild to moderate dry eye can use liquid preparations, and patients with severe dry eye can use gel preparations. Wang Yan said that artificial tears are only symptomatic treatment and cannot be cured. Therefore, in the process of treatment, we should clarify the etiology as soon as possible and actively treat the etiology.

it should be emphasized that the common manifestations of patients with dry eye are similar to conjunctivitis and may be misdiagnosed. Therefore, the long-term application of anti-inflammatory eye drops will not only fail to treat dry eye, but also aggravate the condition of dry eye.
