There are many potential causes of chronic red eye. Make sure you are not exposing yourself to any allergens. Get treated if you suffer from seasonal allergies. Do not put in over the counter drops that "get the red out" as they often cause rebound redness when withdrawn, and go see your ophthalmologist on a day where the redness is present so they could check for other problems such as episcleritis, corneal abnormalities, etc.
last month i woke up with my right eye being red. i thought it was normal redness and ignored it. that very day in the evening my eyes started burning when i moved out of my house. i went to the ophthalmologist and as per him it was dust allergies. i started using the eye drops prescribed but they weren't helpful. gradually as weeks passed i also started developing dry eye symptoms. things became more worse when my right eye as it was more affected started showing blurred vision, whereas the left eye shows clear vision and both my eyes would turn red after sitting in front of the computer. for that the doc asked me to use glasses +0.50 for both the eyes while using the computer and said that there is nothing serious.
now even after wearing the glasses my eyes become red when on the computer or if i do work that demands concentration, the red lines which had come due to allergies are still there, the burning in the evening [ which is due to allergies] still continues, eyes are red most of the time, blurred vision in the right eye, there is discomfort all throughout the day and slight pain sometimes in the eyes.
i am 20 and I've had no eye problems prior to this. it all started with allergies more than a month back and its just getting worse day by day. I'm too frustrated and my overall life is getting affected. will be thankful if replied.
You should go see a cornea specialist. No reason for you to suffer like this. These days, the majority of the time we could treat your symptoms successfully at your age with the appropriate diagnosis. But do go see a cornea specialist.
thanks a lot doctor! (:
i'll surely take an appointment with a cornea specialist soon.
by the way, the doctor from whom i'm currently taking treatment is
DNB DOMS paediatric opthalmologist strabismologist & phaco surgeon.
dont know what that means but doctor u might understand it better.
It means the doctor is an ophthalmologist who has had further fellowship training in dealing with eye disease in children and eye muscle problems.
thanks doctor! i'll be visiting a cornea specialist tomorrow!
My name is Julissa, I'm 32 years old and healthy, since the last four years the white part of my eyes are getting red (looks like marked red lines in the white part of my eyes). I already visited the doctor, I had many tests, including a kind of ultrasound. They said everything is fine, I have no problems so the red eyes it's cause my optic nerve is thick, so there's no cure for that. I'm pretty depressed about that, cause'it looks really bad, I didn't have this problem a few years ago and it seems like it's getting worse each time. I'd like to know if there could be another reason and if there's any estethic treatment to get back the white in my eyes.
Thanks for your time and your help.
You need to see an ophthalmologist (another one if you've already seen one) to make sure all is OK. Not normal for your age unless there is a finding (pterygium, pingueculum, dry eyes, etc).
