I have a feeling of something behind my eye, what could it be?

You probably need to put glasses with a small diopter.

This is the most common case of this kind of eye pain and eye muscle strain.

Tips if you want to delay the appointment to the optometrist:

Blink more

Blinking more will moisture your eyes better

Yawn more

Yawning will help you to produce more tears

Window/Monitor position

If you use computer, your monitor should be to the side of the window.

Not in front or behind, because this may cause eye damage or glare.


Install Iris or other blue light filter software to reduce the blue light. This may help you to relieve the tension in the eyes.

Take breaks

Close your eyes, look at distant objects from time to time. This will help you to relax your eye muscles.

Eat Healthy

Proper nutrition and exercise may heal everything even if you don’t do anything else.

See a doctor

It’s good someone trained in eye problems to look at you but also do your best to take care of yourself alone.

Ophthalmologist may put you some diagnose but eye problems can’t be cured with a simple pill.

You may also need glasses and an optemetrist may give you an exact prescription for your eyes.
