Eye Problem: Symptoms of Vision Changes

Sensation of tired eyesight, sensitivity to light, tearing and itchy eyes are some symptoms that can be indicative of a vision problem, such as nearsightedness, astigmatism or farsightedness, for example, especially when it lasts for several days in a row.

When they appear, these symptoms must be evaluated by an ophthalmologist, in order to confirm if there is any vision problem and start the most appropriate treatment, relieving the discomfort.

Treatment for vision problems varies according to the problem diagnosed, and the use of eye drops may be indicated, in simpler cases, or surgery to correct vision in more severe cases.

Treatment for Vision Problems

Treatment for vision problems depends on the type of change in vision, the most common being the use of lenses or glasses to correct the degree. In addition, in simpler cases, such as an inflammation of the eye, for example, the ophthalmologist may indicate the use of eye drops to solve the problem.
