Modern-day Filipino lifestyle can take its toll on our eye health. People, young kids included, who spend many hours in front of the computer, the tellie, or a handheld gadget are prone to suffer from dry and itchy eyes. While those who are exposed to dirt and pollutants due to daily commute are more likely to suffer from a number of “eyeritation.”

What are the 5 signs of eyeritation?

  1. Red Eyes ~ a condition usually caused by allergy, dirt, smoke, pollution, or common eye infections which are the most common among people who are highly exposed to outdoor activities like motorcycle rider and commuters.
  2. Watery Eyes ~ excessive tearing not caused by normal crying may very well be a sign of an underlying health condition. When too many tears are being secreted, it is often because of irritation or inflammation of the surface of the eye that can be caused by external elements as well.
  3. Sore Eyes ~ is usually caused by staring into a computer screen or a book for too long.
  4. Itchy Eyes ~ are often caused by allergies. It can also occur when there is constant exposure to household elements like mold and dust. Rubbing the itchy eyes, even when you cannot resist the urge at times, won’t help.
  5. Dry Eyes ~ this is common to people who have high exposure to gadget, tellie, laptops, as well as those working in air-conditioned rooms. Lack of tears or moisture in the eyes is also common as we age.

Like other parts of your body, you should take care of your eyes. If you don’t take proper eye care, it can result to many eye diseases. – Earl Jayona, Marketing Manager for Eye Mo, LF Asia Philippines, Inc., Healthcare Division
