I have been experiencing some issues with my eyes’ health. These days, they become itchy and tired more easily. Additionally, I have noticed a tiny black floater recently appearing in my left eye.

This situation is concerning, and I am worried about it. It indicates that I have been straining my eyes. They are now fatigued and strained. Maybe there’s some inflammation? One thing I am certain of is that it is definitely a consequence of my terrible lifestyle.

I spend 90% of my waking life in front of a computer screen or using my mobile phone. I use electronic devices for work and for entertainment purposes such as reading or watching YouTube videos. The only times I am not using my computer are during meal times, showers, or my one-hour exercise session in the evening.

I have always known that my eyesight is bad and have been eating omega3 and lutein and zeaxanthin supplements on an almost daily basis since my teenage years. However, they are still not enough to combat the over usage of my eyes.

I have scheduled an appointment to see my eye doctor for an examination, and I hope it’s not a serious matter.
