Causes of Red Tired Eyes.

Tired eyes occur as a consequence of the effort. In general, there is a serious phenomenon. Tired eyes may indicate an eye disease in children or an age problem to person who are over 50 years old. In rare cases, eye fatigue is due to the presence of a disease or a medical treatment. However there are many contributing factors that can be the cause of red tired eyes. Genetics can play a part but this is not the main cause of this problem.


The symptoms include:

Burning sensation, heaviness in the eyes, sore eyes, watery eyes, dry eyes, blurred vision, an uncomfortable sensation of the eyelids or a pressure in the eye. Sometimes, eye fatigue can be accompanied by headaches, dizziness and migraines.

What are the causes?

  • The air conditioning
  • Heating system
  • Caffeine, tobacco or cigarette smoke
  • Industrial dust or other dust
  • Reading for extended periods
  • Spending several hours a day in front of the TV or computer
  • Under-performing liver or kidneys
  • Allergies, hay fever, sinus problems and nasal congestion
  • Inadequate sleep
  •  Excessive crying
  • Inadequate oxygen supply to the cornea
  • Pollution
  • Exposure to bright light or glare
  • Straining to see in very dim light
  • Fluid retention, salt (sodium) intake and lymphatic drainage
  • Increased pigmentation of the periorbital area (Indian, Asian, African and Mediterranean people)
  • Aging: It is the main cause of eye fatigue after 50 years; the body releases fewer tears, determining eye dryness.

Home remedies for tired eyes:

  • Apply compresses of warm water on the eyelids, if the eyes are dry. It's not necessary to use sterile water.
  • Use eye drops that will temporarily relax sensitive and irritated eyes.
  • Create a proper humidity in the room at night, in order to avoid waking up with red eyes.
  •  Plan a break from your computer. Take a break of 10 minutes at every hour.
  • Improve your working environment. Reduce the brightness of the computer screen or install a protection screen, reduce the intensity of colors.
  • Consult your doctor when you have an eye problem. People often regret that they haven't asked for the advice of a doctor earlier, because the eye exam is not painful and the remedies are efficient.

 Have a beautiful day!
