Is it better to dry your eyes?
Q: I’m an office worker in my early 30s. I have severe dry eyes, perhaps because I’ve seen a lot of computers on duty.
When I searched on the Internet, they said that cold packs or hot packs are good. What kind of packs would be good? Does it really work?
A: If dry eye syndrome persists for a long time, the oil glands (mybom glands) on the eyelids will become inflamed. It is commonly referred to as eyelid inflammation Without treatment, symptoms do not improve. For treatment, you need to clean your eyelids for a long time along with the use of drugs.
First, warm up a clean towel. If you use the microwave, you can microwave it for about 15-30 seconds. Then, leave your eyes closed and put them on your eyes and apply a hot pack for about 5 minutes.
After hot packs, gently press down on the eyelids to massage. Next, wipe the rim of the eyelid with a cotton swab slightly wet with artificial tears. You can think of it as an area where you put on eyeliner makeup. At this time, be careful not to poke your eyes with a cotton swab. Lastly, wash your face with hot water and thoroughly wash your eyelashes with your fingers.
Eyeliditis is a chronic disease. Usually, constant treatment is required for 1 to 3 months. In severe cases, you may also need to take anti-inflammatory drugs and drugs.
Prior to dry eye syndrome, visit the ophthalmologist for an examination to see if you have eyelid inflammation. It will provide proper medication.
