Eyestrain: Causes, Symptoms and 12 Ways To Treat It

What is eyestrain?

Asthenopia or eyestrain is a problem with visual comfort, which typically occurs when the eyes are not working efficiently. It can be due to uncorrected refractive error (not wearing glasses), using the wrong pair of spectacles or contact lenses, ageing changes to the eyes or over-working the eyes without adequate rest. Anyone who reads or works at a computer for long periods or drives long distances will often suffer from asthenopia.
