Bloodshot eyes

I have one. I got this eye allergy through lack of sleep and spending too much time in front of the computer.
I’m studying the program manual and familiarizing myself with the different terms and application for the translation job. I’m still half-way through the manual, but my eyes were already puffy and red.


I’ve read that tired eyes can cause enlarged, dilated blood vessels in the conjunctivas or the white of the eyes. Allergies of exposure to an irritant like smoke can also cause redness. Red eyes can also indicate a systemic problem, such as an autoimmune disease.

What to do:

  • Take frequent breaks if you are working at the computer for a long period.
  • Close your eyes for one minute to rewet them and reduce the evaporation of tears before resuming work.
  • You can use lubricant to lubricate your eyes and flush out irritants.
  • Do not overused redness-reducing drops for they might worsen redness.

I don’t know what I would do if not for my ever supportive hubby who patiently explains technical words to me like when I ask him about web hosting a few months ago. Wonder why I mentioned web hosting here? I need to make a web hosting reviews before my eyes becomes irritated again. Ouch!
