Worried about my "hazy"-looking eyes (picture included)

I've had drowsy-looking eyes for almost a few years now, and it's affecting the way people perceive me, especially at job interviews and in general social situations.  In addition, I feel a significant amount of pain, and constantly feel the need to blink.  I swear, on my worst days, people seem to believe I have Down's Syndrome.

This has been occurring for well over a few years now.

I generally thought this was a self-esteem issue, until I went to see my sleep specialist, who confirmed the medical pathological nature of it by stating my eyes were "hazy."

If it aids in the diagnosis, I am involved with a great deal of computer work (>50 hours per week) and I watch a lot of T.V..  I am currently pursuing a computer science major, so the heavy computer use isn't something  I can cut down on.

Thanks in advance,

The Great RowaH

Sorry, but due to the fact that I am butt-ugly, a picture will not be posted.  Sorry.

TGRH   Work a little on your self esteem, it needs help.  You need not cut down on computer use, it will not hurt your eyes. Do it long enough and your eyes wll get tired, but walk long enough and your legs will get tired also. Same anology.

See an ophthalmologist. You need to exclude disease or refractive error. Also to exclude droopy eyelids (ptosis) and the rare chance of ocular myasthenia gravis. Remember an MD physician eye specialist (ophthalmologist).
