I have sore eyes every day. I work with computers every day

Customer Question

i have sore eyes every day. I work with computers every day and often am doing a lot of driving. When I have sunglasses on, there is no problem but when i am exposed to light inside and out, they get irritated and i start squiting. I have no problems with seeing things but think i could be light sentitive if there is such a thing? I dont know if they are damaged or i need some sort of treatment. When i put a wet cloth on them, they are relieved instantly .any advice would be greatly appreciated or remedies for this. Basically they get irritated easily with wind, sun,light and hot/cold temperatures. i don't wear glasses as i have not struggled with seeing things but maybe i need glasses with special lenses. When i wear sunglasses there is no problem. thanks

There are 2 possibilities. You could be having dryness in your eyes or you could have developed convergence insufficiency. For dryness, you can use a lubricating eye drop like Refresh Teras 3-4 times a day. To confirm convergence insufficiency you will have to see an optometrist. Thanks.
