Tired Eyes

Eyes are sensory organs that detect light and convert it into electro-chemical impulses in neurons. The simplest photoreceptor cells in our conscious vision connect the light to movement. In higher organisms, the eye is a complex optical system which collects light from the surrounding environment; regulates its intensity through the diaphragm; focuses it through an adjustable assembly of lenses to form an image; converts this image into a set of electrical signals; and transmits these signals to the brain through complex neural pathways that connect the eye via the optic nerve to the visual cortex and other areas of the brain. Therefore there are many things that can cause tired-looking eyes apart from ageing. You should see your doctor or optician for an assessment of the potential causes in your own individual case.

TREATMENTS

OBAGI

For firmer, more resilient-looking eyes, refresh your skin’s appearance with OBAGI ELASTIderm Eye Products formulated with clinically proven ingredients. These products help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; improve the feeling of elasticity and firmness; and promote smoother, tighter-looking skin.

TEAR TROUGH FILLER

Hyaluronic acid fillers provide an efficient option for volume augmentation with good efficacy, longevity, and safety. An understanding of the changes in the upper and lower periocular area (upper and lower lid) due to ageing; the meticulous identification of focal hollows; and the precise delivery of a filler, to these areas, can smooth contours and restore a rejuvenated periorbital (eye) area.

Tear through filler will often be combined with CHEEK FILLERS in a case where the line from the corner of the eye is going down the cheek.

BTX

Crows feet around the eyes and laughter lines are the most beautiful lines we all have sooner or later. No escape!
Unless the underlying orbicularis muscle contractions, visible when smiling or closing the eyelids as fine dynamic radiating crow’s feet, are stopped from forming the wrinkles by tiny injections of BTX.

Just 3 small injections of BTX are used for the crow’s feet on each side. The 4th point of injection will slightly lift the tail of your eyebrow up. To reduce the small wrinkles under the eyes, and to open them up, the 5th injection point might be used.

The exact number and amount of Botox injections is individualised to every patients’ needs and clinical findings. All Botox injections are done by the Independent Nurse Prescriber.

Prevention

Cold compresses and reducing your salt intake may help cosmetically, if puffiness is an issue; but they won’t address the underlying cause. Cold therapy is best for the face. Keep two teaspoons in your freezer, for a while, and place the spoons around your eyes. It will make your eyes look fresh, and it is good for sagging and dark circles. You can also, keep your face cream in the fridge (not in the freezer). It will have a better effect on your skin.

Try having a glass of juice daily. Using a recipe which has a good effect on your skin, and will make you feel fresh and keep you vitalised. Take one apple, one orange, one carrot and blend these all together and extract the juice. To this, add 2 teaspoons of ginger extract. Consume this on a daily basis and you will feel fresh all day long 🙂 If oranges are not available, you can compensate that with lemon extract 🙂 Good luck!

Pretty much all vitamins (A – watery & tired, B – twitching & night vision, C – muscle tone, D – nearsightedness, & E – antioxidant) have benefits for eye support. For eyes that get tired quickly, Vitamin C is indispensable. Make sure to also drink plenty of water to flush toxins; and have a good intake of Omega-3, which is good for tear production, a factor in keeping eyes healthy.

Avoid digital eye strain, which has become a lot more common now that our lifestyles involve large periods of time spent on digital devices. This can result in our eyes feeling dry, tired or irritated. The symptoms may include dryness, irritation and/or redness in the eyes; fatigue; blurred vision; problems with keeping focused; headaches; neck and shoulder pain. Here are some tips to combat digital eye strain.
