Many of us spend hours on computers at home or at work, which causes burning eyes or blurred vision. Nowadays this situation occurs so often that there’s a special term in medical practice that describes vision problems connected with prolonged computer, cell phone, or e-book use: “digital eye strain” or “dry eye syndrome.” If you recognize these symptoms, discuss with your doctor the ways to solve this problem.
4. Blind spots
It’s always frightening to notice a blind spot in your vision. This may pretty often point at migraine with aura, especially if the picture you get is accompanied by sparkling dots or wavy lines. Typically, blind spots go together with headaches.
If such symptoms sound even too familiar for you, call your doctor to learn what triggers the problem.
5. Bulging eyes
We have all had times when our eyes seemed to betray us. We rub them or blink several times, and our vision seems to become clear again. But if you constantly feel some sort of expansion in your eyes, it can be a symptom of thyroid (or Graves) eye disease. It means your thyroid is overactive.
Difficulties closing the eyes is one of the symptoms which can make the eyes appear to bulge. It occurs in 30% of cases, so if you see something like that, call your doctor immediately.
