Eyes can feel strained or sore. There can be a sensation of aching around the outside for the eyes. In fact, some people feel the need to close their tired eyes.
Lots of eyestrain patients at our clinic suffer headaches. These can feel like an ache above the eyebrows, or near the eyes. Eyestrain can also cause the eyes to feel a ‘pulling’ sensation or a feeling of pressure behind or around the eyes.
Blurred or double vision
Sometimes tired eyes have trouble focusing on objects. Indeed, this can result in blurry vision, or even double vision.
When eyestrain occurs it can also be accompanied by watery eyes. This symptom is not serious and will usually ease when the eyes are rested.
