Question

 

 

Hi,

For the past 3 days, I've been having a combination of dry eyes and eye fatigue. My eyelids always feel heavy and the edges of my eyes feel dry.

Usually, my eye fatigue is resolved with sleep but this time, it has not gone away. I'm not sure what the cause is. I wear night contacts but have never had problems with it. I have been using electronics a bit more the past few days but have minimized use the past 3 days.

I am moisturizing my eyes with eye drops, warm compress, and lotion around the eyes. I just want to know whether this issue will resolve or whether it may be something more serious?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

You have to take your contact lenses off for few days and keep using lubricant eye drops. In case there is no improvement in your condition, you have to visit your optometrist for further evaluation.
