Welcome to Just Answer
It is a bit early for presbyopia
to set in at your age though not unheard of. Presbyopia is a condition in the eye seen around 40 years, in which the near vision begins to become blurred and needs reading glasses for it. You have mentioned that you have never had any problem with seeing without glasses but things get blurred with both computer and television. I would think in terms of dry eyes
first for the above symptoms.
Dry eyes can occur from involvement of any of the 3 layers of the tear film. The tear film has 3 layers- aqueous, lipid and mucin. The most frquent layer to be affected is the aqueous layer. It is seen due to increased evapouration of tears as can be seen with excessive hours in front of the laptop/computer/television or long hours of continous reading or writing. It can also be precipitated by excessive exposure to air conditioning or even very hot and humid climate. The treatment is in the form of tear supplements such as over the counter preservative free Refresh tears eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day for about a month.
Headaches can occur from work related stress or from migraine
. Treatment is in the form of Tab.Acetaminophen 500mg twice a day or SOS when you have severe headache only.
Try using the lubricating eye drops regularly and keep the reading glasses away if the words are clear without them. If the vision remains blurred both for distance(television viewing) and near ( as in reading a book), even after 3-4 weeks of use of lubricating eye drops, then it is better to consult an eye doctor (ophthalmologist
) for a detailed eye check up.
