Beware: Staring At Your Smartphone Adds The Risk Of Having This Terrible Eye Disease!

Even when you’re happy, your eyes are full of tears.
They provide moisture and lubrication to help you see and keep your peepers comfortable.
Did you know that Dry, itchy eyes, or “Dry Eye Syndrome” , is the most common complaint that eye doctors hear from patients?
Our eyes often reflect a larger problem that needs to be treated systemically.
Certain nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D, E, & B6, Magnesium, GLA & DHA,
Mucopolysaccharides (mucopolysaccharides are sugar molecules clumped together in a long chain) & tumeric may help ease chronic and severe dry eyes.
These kind of eye problem also known as dry itchy eyes are often related to other health conditions in the body such as other mucous membrane dryness, brittle nails, and in interior surfaces like the joints.
The condition can be an indicator of digestive imbalances or of serious autoimmune diseases, like Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus erthematosus.
We listed below some of the Symptoms of Dry Eyes:
Symptoms typically include the following:
– Burning
– Grittiness
– Irritation
– Dryness
– Difficulty reading for long periods of time.
According to a study, published by ‘BMC Opthalmology’ children who spend more time on their phones have more symptoms of dry eye disease. This study shows that when those children went without their phones for a whole month, their symptoms were reduced.
Actually there are three interrelated layers of the “tear film” – the moisture laden surface of the eye and continuity of that surface and the production of tears.
It relies on the function of three interrelated layers:
1. Mucus layer which has some anti-microbial properties.
2. Slightly alkaline watery layer comprising up 90% of the thickness of the tear film.
3. Oily layer which slows evaporation of the tear film.
4. Blinking renews the tear film by bringing material from the watery and oily layers removing debris. While normal blink rate is about 10-12 blinks per minute, when working on the computer our blink rate often slows.
We hope that this brief article is informative to you, share this post so that you can also inform others about this and might help them a lot.
