Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Generally, treatment for eyestrain consists of making changes in your work habits or your environment.

  • In some cases, eyestrain may improve if you get treatment for another underlying eye condition.
  • For some people, wearing glasses that are prescribed for specific activities, such as using a computer or reading, may help reduce eyestrain.
  • Your doctor may suggest that you do regular eye exercises to help your eyes focus at different distances.
