Some times for days! I don t know if its the heat of the radiator or some other thing I m allergic too. I went for eye visit and the doctor said I need to sleep more, and i have a slight e stigmata on one of my eyes.

Eye strain or tiredness of the eyes is commonly due to an exertion of the eye muscles either due to an uncorrected refractive error, strain on normal eye mucles due to lack of sleep or overwork or due to weeak eye muscles to begin with. firstly, you need to get your eyes checked to look for any refractive error especially a cylindrical one that may easily be corrected with glasses. If that exists, the eye muscles come bakc to their resting state and the eye strain disappears. If the eye strain is due to lack of sleep, then you have to fit a few more hours of rest into your schedule and the improvement will be obvious. If the symptoms are due to inherently weak eye musculature, the condition arises most often due to a mild vitamin deficiency and overall ill health and you may also be experiencing mild lethargy and tiredness along with eye strain. Take B complex supplements for 2 to 3 weeks daliy and check for improvement. You may also start an antiinflammatory eye drop regime in the eyes like Ketorolac if there is an allergic component. Lubricating eye drops also help to relax tired eyes and can be used 3 times a day.
