Title: How Rubbing Your Eyes Can Lead To Vision Loss?

(No Transcript)
  • How many of you have the habit of rubbing your
    eyes endlessly and end up with red and swollen
    eyes? Often rubbing the eyes is associated with a
    persons bad habit. Sometimes, it can also be a
    sign of a developing eye condition, infection, or
    allergy. In any circumstances, avoid rubbing your
    eyes too hard and too often.
  • It can damage your eyes
  • Rubbing your eyes vigorously will cause damage to
    the lens of your cornea. This damage can lead to
    vision loss, blur vision, and in extreme cases,
    retinal detachment. If your eyes are itching or
    burning, it is wise to visit the best eye
  • Samarth Eye Care is a well-renowned Eye
    Specialist in Santacruz, Mumbai, and we are here
    to educate people on how their daily habits can
    result in the damage they may find it challenging
    to overcome.
  • Eyes are the most sensitive organs of the human
    body. The size of your eyeballs and retina is
    pre-fixed at the time of your birth. Due to too
    much strain on the eyes, it stretches the retinal
    muscles, causing wear and tears around the
    retinal lens.

  • This condition, if left untreated, may lead to
    retinal detachment followed by blurry vision and
    blindness. It is advisable to consult our expert
    Eye doctor in Santacruz if a person is
    experiencing one of the following signs
  • Pain in the eyes
  • Sensitive to light
  • Blurred or reduced vision
  • Redness or inflammation
  • Swollen eyes due
  • Itchiness
  • Fluctuating headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • All these symptoms are initial signs of
    developing eye disease due to weakened eye
    muscles, and therefore, it should be examined by
    a professional immediately.

  • The Potential Damages
  • Excessive rubbing of eyes will break the tiny
    blood vessels, resulting in blood-shots in the
    eyes and dark circles
  • The germs present on your hands get transferred
    to your eyes and enter your body system.
    Conjunctivitis is an eye condition caused due to
    these germs present in your eyes.
  • Rubbing your eyes because a foreign object (dust
    particles, broken eyelashes, or tiny insects)
    entered inside will cause more damage. It is wise
    to use a warm cloth and put it on the eyes to get
    rid of the foreign object rather than
    continuously rubbing it.
  • Touching your eyes with bare hands can also
    scratch the cornea surface, disrupting your
    quality vision.
  • A person who is already suffering from myopia or
    glaucoma may worsen the situation by rubbing
    their eyes. Rubbing can slow down the blood
    supply to the back of your eyes, leading to nerve
    damage, and vision loss.
  • Rubbing your eyes can also lead to thinning of
    your cornea. This condition is termed as
    Keratoconus in which the cornea becomes weak and
    push forward. It may result in distorted vision,
    and a corneal graft may get recommended by the
    doctor to reshape your cornea.

  • Stop rubbing your eyes right now!
  • Use sterile saline or artificial tears in case a
    foreign object enters inside your eyes.
  • Remove your contact lenses and wash your eyes
    with cold water to relieve the eye strain due to
    constant screen time.
  • Use prescribed steroid eye drops to prevent
    chronic eye rubbing in case you are suffering
    from an allergy.
  • Do not rub your eyes too often. Try booking an
    appointment with an expert eye doctor who can
    help you protect your vision. For more details on
    eye treatment, surgeries, cataract, and eye
    conditions, Samarth Eye Care is just one call
