11. Eye dryness
This might happen if you stare at the computer for a long time, or sometimes your eyes may become dry due to hormonal changes or arthritis. This is something of an occupational hazard for office workers or day traders – professions which involve using screens all day.
12. Lumps on the eyelid
A stye can develop as a result of clogging and infection of the eyelash follicle. This can be prevented by washing out your eyes regularly with lukewarm water, as well as changing your pillowcase regularly to avoid this and other infection issues.
13. Eye pain
A more general complaint here, but it can be very disconcerting and worrying when we start to get random pain in one or both eyes.
Whether the pain is sporadic (every now and then) or chronic (continuing constantly and/or for a long period of time), eye pain can be attributed to glaucoma, conjunctivitis or migraines.
