Dryness & itch

For the last 10 years, I work with computers and drive a two wheeler. I always have white discharge from eyes till about two years back every morning. But i moved to Bangalore in Feb 2015 and from then my white discharge is not there. Also i feel that something is stuck (like a dirt or small micro particle) but when i inspect there is nothing. Even if i wash my eyes the feeling does not go. I tried to use Refresh Tears on and off and also use cotton mask with rose water on and off... even then i find this sensation continuing. Please suggest

You may have dry eye. So take frequent breaks, blink more while working on the computer, don't sit with the AC directly blowing in your face, use lubricating eyedrops like optive fusion or refresh liquigel regularly at least 6 times a day for a couple of months.

Hello, the foreign body sensation in your eyes might be due to dry eyes. Long hours in front of computers can also lead to that. Get a thorough check up with ophthalmologist, mean while you can continue the eye drops four times a day, to both eyes religiously for a month and can note the difference..
