Hello. Thank you for your time. I realize this question might take longer to answer - but it's OK.I have allergies - especially nasty at this time of the year - and my eyes itch like crazy.I have a prescription for Pataday - but sometimes it's not enough. I was told I cannot use a second application on the same day - but is there anything else I can do/buy??ALSO, please - I get mucus in m eyes at this time of the year which makes mostly reading, like looking through waxed paper. Is there anything which can be done for that problem??P.S. F.Y.I.: I wear contact lenses - the disposable ones.Thank you again for your time and patience

What would be ideal schedule to avoid eye strains? I have a software that locks my computer at any set number of minutes. I overused computer and developed eye strains. Is having a break every 25 minutes of computer use for 10 minutes helpful to prevent eye strains or it's too rigid? I need to be able to work on computer for up to 10 hours a day, so is having frequent breaks the key here?

I got recently a new prescription for my glasses, so I was

I got recently a new prescription for my glasses, so I was wondering why my vision gets blurry and my eyes heavy when I work at computer more than half an hour, and while this varies throughout the day, it feels like it's chronic and doesn't completely go away after a night sleep.I used to be able to have a sharp vision while using PC for hours at a time, and I did make a mistake by not having more frequent brakes. But now even a break every 30 minutes doesn't help my vision acuity. And it's not a new think either. I remember as a kid I was reading something for too long and this thing would happen and stay for a period of time when my vision would deteriorate.I don't have glaucoma or anything serious per my yearly vision checks. But I don't wear my glasses constantly, and often try reading without them - especially at the bedtime - could this strain my eye muscle and lead to blurry vision even when I put my glasses on?

Lately I've been having this blotchy feeling in my right

Hello!JA: Hi. How can we help?Customer: Lately I've been having this blotchy feeling in my right eye. I can see fine, but it's almost like it's a little bit blurry in spots in my eye. I have to kind of pull my eye open to readjust it and that sometimes helps. There is no pain or discomfort, but just annoying and worrying.JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?Customer: Probably a couple of months. And no unusual headaches. I deal with migraines, but that's nothing new. I've had migraines since I was 12JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I am a type 1 diabetic. The last time I saw my eye Dr was probably 7 or 8 months ago. I have a tiny bit of retinopathy in my right eye, but nothing serious as of right now. Just worried it's that.

I have a question about my eyes,, lately i have been

Hi, i have a question about my eyes,, lately i have been noticing some kind of brownish color on the white part of both my eyes. However when i pull up my upper eyelids then the white part is white... I have been working behind a scranner which gives too much light and there is dust. And i sit infront of the computer a lot, at work and home. What can be the cause of this brownish color? I were glasses and i recently found out that my eye shapness went back a bit which made me make new glasses with the right shapness. There is no pain or blurry visions, but my eyes have become a bit sensitive to light now and i bought eye drops for that and they help alot... now im just concerned with the brownish color. And I dont have any medical conditions.
