6 tips to manage dry eyes in the workplace
Dry Eye is not uncommon in workplaces around New Zealand and can be uncomfortable enough to ruin any productive workday.
Common symptoms of Dry Eye include eyes watering, appearing red, or feeling gritty, irritated, or like they are burning.
Workplaces are particularly prone to cases of Dry Eye, as they often check all the boxes that contribute to the issue. For example, the overuse of computers or laptop screens, dry air from air conditioning, or excessive airflow if you’re seated under an air conditioning unit.
Aside from environmental factors, Dry Eye is usually more common in women, those with diabetes, older generations, anyone who wears contact lenses, and those taking various medications (check the pack for side effects).
So, if you’re dealing with the annoying symptoms of Dry Eye at work, what can you do about it? Try these tips.
