Eyes Feeling Tired All The Time? What May Be The Problem


When your eyes feel tired, it's more than likely that you're just tired and need to rest, but if your eyes feel tired all of the time, it may be because you're straining them too hard. Eye strain can cause a lot of issues for your eyes and your vision, including tired eyes. Other things can lead to your eyes feeling tired as well. Read on for a few reasons why your eyes may be feeling tired and what you can do about them.

Eye Strain

Again, eye strain may be one of the biggest causes of tired eyes. Eye strain can be caused by focusing too much time on tech devices such as smartphones, tablets, computers, or even the television. If you are staring at a screen for much of your day, your eyes are going to feel tired and possibly dry, or you may have blurry vision when you are finished with these devices. Eye strain can also be caused by trying to squint to see, such as from being in the sun all day without proper eye protection, or attempting to see without proper prescription eyewear. If you are straining your eyes, you are going to end up with tired eyes. Take breaks from devices throughout the day to prevent this strain, and remember to wear sunglasses when in the sun. Also be sure you are wearing your prescription lenses whenever necessary, and don't strain to see without them.

Dry Eyes

If you have constant dry eyes, you may also have tired eyes all of the time as well. Dry eyes can be a pain to deal with, especially if you always feel like you have something in them, but aren't producing the tears to help get it out. If you have dry eyes, you can try to use an over-the-counter eye drop to increase moisture in the eyes, or you can talk to your optometrist about prescription eye drops.


If you have allergies, your eyes may be feeling very tired during the peak of allergy season. You may just want to keep your eyes closed the entire allergy season, but this isn't possible. Using allergy medication can help with your vision and how allergies affect your eyes, as can eye drops made for those with allergies. Talk to your optometrist about allergy medication that can help your eyes during allergy season.

If you always have tired eyes, and you've gotten enough rest, the problem is something else. Make an eye appointment and talk to an eye doctor about the issues you've been experiencing so you can get the right type of treatment.

Going To The Eye Doctor

Do you remember the last time you thought about the quality of your vision? Although it can be easy to write off vision problems as a simple frustration, taking the time to visit your eye doctor might help you to take care of important aspects of your day to day life. In addition to making your vision more comfortable with the right pair of frames or the right contact lenses, going to the eye doctor might also help you to keep up with your overall eye care. If you have an undetected disease or illness, your eye doctor might mention it before it affects your health. Read this blog for more information.
