Rubbing eyes

Many years ago, when looking up things on the Internet was not the norm, I heard from different people that rubbing the eyes cause squinting. I didn't read about this in any health magazine or talked about it with any professional then. Since then, whenever my eyes got a bit itchy, I thought of this thing and stayed away from rubbing the eyeball as much as possible. Now when I look up on this issue on the internet, I can find benefits from rubbing eyes, of course gently. There are other grave issues that can flare up by rubbing eyes,but it didn't mention a word about squinting. Do you rub your eyes after a tiring screen time? Image:abc.net.au

I never rub my eyes or squint. It's a very bad habit to get into.

@Sojourn It may, but it causes wrinkles.

I get a cold wash cloth and put that on my eyes to make them feel better.

I feel odd with my eyes and sometimes I feel itchy too. So I do rub it often.

Do you have myopia? If not a little bit of gentle rubbing now and then will do no harm, I guess.

No, I do not believe I rub my eyes due to screen time. I stop using my laptop around 5 p.m. and I rarely use my cell phone.

I'm tempted to rub my eyes but try not too. I look away from my computer at regular intervals.
