Have you wondered why you have had exhausted eyes for a while? At The Providence Projects, we have discovered the far-reaching consequences on physical and mental health that alcohol abuse has on us—one such effect is related to our visual system. There is a solid connection between alcohol addiction and eye exhaustion.
Let’s address how alcoholism can cause eye exhaustion as well as look at the available treatment options. With over 25 years of experience in the treatment of substance abuse, we are here to help you or your loved one navigate the path to recovery.
What Is Eye Exhaustion?
Exhaustion of the eyes is also known as eye strain or asthenopia. It is common when the eyes get tired from intense use, such as staring at a computer screen, reading, or driving for long periods. It can cause discomfort, fatigue, and even headaches.
Some common symptoms of eye exhaustion include:
- Sore, tired, or itching eyes.
- Blurred or double vision.
- Dry or watery eyes.
- Increased sensitivity to light.
- Difficulty concentrating.
Eye exhaustion can be caused by various factors, including:
- Prolonged screen time (computers, smartphones, TV).
- Reading for extended periods.
- Poor lighting conditions.
- Glare on screens or from the sun.
- Alcohol abuse
To prevent or ease eye exhaustion, some of the self-care steps that may be helpful are adjusting lighting according to the activities being performed. You can limit screen time and take breaks while performing activities likely to cause eye strain. However, in the last case, the steps you will need to take are more and more difficult to perform. This is why prevention is the recommended way to help someone who might be facing eye exhaustion as a consequence of their alcohol abuse.

Treatment for eye exhaustion can be managed through various methods to alleviate discomfort and prevent further strain. However, the most effective treatment for eye exhaustion resulting from alcohol abuse is addressing the root cause – alcohol addiction itself.
At The Providence Projects, we offer comprehensive treatment for alcoholism that address addiction’s physical, mental, and emotional aspects. Our team of experts will work with you or your loved one to develop a personalised treatment plan that may include medical detox, therapy, and aftercare support.
In addition to treating alcohol addiction, it may be necessary to address the nutritional deficiencies caused by excessive alcohol consumption. Vitamin A is a crucial vitamin for the eyes. So, there is a need to supplement it. This can involve dietary changes, supplementation, and working with a healthcare professional to monitor progress.
