There are an increasing number of people with symptoms of stressed and dry eyes. This is attributed to their lifestyle and their work environments. Long hours in an air conditioned office, or concentrated work at the computer are two of the most common factors for this condition. A report revealed that people blink fewer times while they are working at a computer compared to other times- when they blink at least twice as much.
When the eyes are opened for a long time without blinking, the eyes tend to dry out faster. This can result in itching, dryness and burning. This occupational affliction is called “Office-Eye-Syndrome”.
