Eye pain: can they hurt or bother?

Eye pain: is it true that they can hurt or bother? We discover its symptoms and what the main causes of eye pain are.

We can see thanks to the eyes, those visual organs capable of detecting light and converting it into electrochemical impulses that then travel through neurons. They consist of a complex optimal system that captures light, regulates its intensity through the iris, focuses the lens through the lens in order to form the image, and then converts it into a set of electrical signals that finally reach the brain through of neuronal routes that connects, through the optimal nerve, the eye with the visual cortex and other brain areas.

Your care and protection is simply essential to maintain good vision. It is very important to use photosensitive lenses (glasses) every day that we go out, avoid prolonged exposure to air conditioning or the computer screen, do not abuse contact lenses, and above all go to the ophthalmologist at least once a year with in order to perform an eye exam, no matter how old we are. The reason is clear: it can take a long time before we actually realize that we have an eye problem.

When it comes to the different conditions and problems that can affect eye health, it may be common for us to ask ourselves a question: is it true that the eyes can hurt or bother? You can ask yourself this question above all out of curiosity, or even as an “alert” if one of your eyes is bothering you right now. The truth is that yes, we must answer affirmatively. Medically it is known by the name of ophthalmalgia, and it is a type of pain in the eyes that appears and is not due to an injury.

This eye pain can be described as a painful, throbbing, burning and lacerating sensation, which is located in or around the eyes. It may also be described as having a foreign body sensation in the eye (i.e., as if there is something lodged in the eye).

It is true that eye pain can be a symptom of a health problem to be taken into account, which is why it is very important and fundamental to tell our doctor that we suffer from eye pain, especially if it has not disappeared.

However, in most cases eye pain is due to trivial causes. For example, we can feel a certain sensation of tiredness or discomfort after having worked or studied for many hours in front of the computer, of a book… It is what is known as eye fatigue, and it tends to disappear after having rested for a while.

Eye pain may also be caused by a headache or migraine, cold or flu, eye infections or inflammation, sinus problems (such as sinusitis), or problems with contact lenses.

With all this, if for example the pain is very intense, tends to last more than 2 days, vision decreases, or pain with inflammation, secretion or pressure in the eyes is present, it is essential to always go to the doctor.
