A woman surnamed Peng began leaking from her eyes after working too much at her job. However, she wasn’t leaking tears but fluid that had built up under her retina.
According to China Press, the woman from Guangdong, China had frequently worked overtime which resulted in the deterioration of her eyesight.
When she went for medical treatment, she told the doctor that her eyesight was worsening and everything she looked at was blurry. She also said that tears often flowed out.
However, the doctor said this “eye-leakage” was due to the build-up of fluid under the retina, which is a condition called central serous chorioretinopath.
According to Medical News Today, “the retina is responsible for translating light taken into the eye as images the brain can understand. The build-up of liquid can cause the retina to detach, and this can cause vision problems.”
In this case, the doctor told the woman that the fluid build-up was caused by overwork of her eye, causing her retina to detach. This condition often happens to people in their mid-40s and is one of the most common retinal diseases.
No treatment is actually required for this condition. Patients only need to rest while the fluid drains out on its own.
In the case where the fluid does not drain out, medication, thermal laser treatment and lifestyle changes are some of the options a patients can consider to treat the condition.
Some lifestyle changes include reducing overall stress levels, sleeping for at least seven hours every night and avoiding alcoholic drinks.
Don’t overwork yourself and remember to sleep early, guys! Your health is more important than your job.
