Q. Can you suggest a good lubricant for near vision?



Hi doctor,

I used to spend a lot of time before laptop and tablet. Now, my vision became blurred when I see a computer. I had a headache in exactly one part or one side of the brain. Then, I had a check up and everything was found normal. The doctor suggested me to take capsule Eyetamin for 20 days. Then, I was fine without any problem for approximately a month. But, again, developed the same problem. Now, they prescribed me with a glass (spherical, ARC and -0.25) along with Oxycool eye drop and some medicines. It was good till now. Some 15 days back, my vision became blurred and I had a headache, though I had my eyeglasses. Both were gone after I had some sleep. I had the problem while I was studying. I used to study continuously for 3 hours to 6 hours approximately a day. I again had a check up and they did not find any problem. Eyeglass specifications did not change. They prescribed me with Zoline plus eye drop. Even after 10 days of use, I do not feel any significant difference. After application of the eye drop, I could not see properly for some time. After some time, it was clear. Now, I could watch television continuously. I am having problems while studying and I could not study continuously even for half an hour either from a textbook or on laptop. I am having eye strain. I fear my vision will become blurred again, so have stopped reading since last 15 days. Please suggest what I should do now. I will be grateful for your advice. Thank you.
