Soothe tired eyes

Tired eyes are more common these days

It is very common to have tired eyes. The frequency of having tired eyes has also increased due to long hours staring at computer screen. When television made its debut many many years ago, "tired eyes" problem was a hot topic. Now comes the little screens in the latest cell phone gadgets, and you have the new wave of tired eyes syndrome. For me it is the long sessions I spend on my laptop that make my eyes tired.

There are many causes of tired eyes. Normal tired eyes are not a cause for eye health concern, as it is just our body’s natural reminder that we are over-taxing our eyes. When we feel our eyes are tired, our body is reminding us that we have strained our eyes for too long, and it’s time to rest our eyes. If tired eyes are caused by our lack of sleep, then it is just plain common sense that we go to sleep immediately. Other than this, our eyes get tired mainly because we are straining our eyes for too long a period. Stop whatever you are doing and rest your eyes.

What I do when I have tired eyes

Assuming that your tired eyes are caused by long session of staring at the computer screen, then there are several ways that you can alleviate the discomfort of tired eyes. This is what I do when my eyes get tired, not necessarily doing all of them or in that order, except 1 and 2.

1. The first thing is to immediately stop doing whatever that is causing this eye tiredness.

2. Close my eyes and relax.

3. Put a few drops of eye drops, close eyes and relax.

4. Go out to the garden, relax and look out at far objects, especially the distant trees.

5. Relax in my rocking chair, with my eyes closed.

6. Have a good wash of my face with warm water.

Two easy methods to soothe tired eyes

There is yet another method that I use. It is actually taken from a very common qigong massage. May I call it the “warm palm method” or "heat therapy on the eyes". This is how you do it. Rub your palms together until heat is generated.The area to concentrate is the bottom part of the palm. Then close your eyes, and quickly place both palms on both eyes, until the heat is dissipated. You will feel a nice warm sensation on both your eyes. Repeat as many times as you like. As I said; it’s that easy. You can watch my video below, and in case you can't make out what I was saying, it's ok, just watch the video.

Another method to ease tired eyes is the “steam bath” treatment. Boil a few cups of water in a pot. Then place the pot on a table, and lower your head over the pot, just near enough to allow the rising steam to bathe your eyes. This is a very soothing treatment for tired eyes.

Have fun and be happy.

      One eye doctor also taught me when you are in the office and really can't walk away from the desk, stare at a fixed object across the room for 30 seconds or so and then go back to the computer.
