  1. Eye’s sensitive to light and burning…any idea what it could be?
    My eye’s have been ok all day. But now the are really bothering me. They burn when I close them and it is bothersome. When they are open they don’t burn but they are very sensitive to light and my eyelids feel heavy. Not sleepy at all but its hard to keep my eye’s open. I havent gotten anything in them or anything or injured them in any kind of. I do wear color contacts that are not prescription

    • May be it is because of your contacts. Avoid it for 3 or 4 days…….. If you still have the burning effect then have a look at this………………………………….

      Mostly a burning sensation is most often caused by a lack of tears to lubricate the surface of the eyes. In other words, dryness is almost always the cause of the burning sensation to which you are referring.

      Causes of Burning eyes

      Chronic dry or burning eyes can be caused by age, some medications, and disease. Itchy, burning eyelids can also result from infection.
      Tears bathe the eye, washing out dust and debris and keeping the eye moist. They also contain enzymes that neutralize the microorganisms that colonize the eye. Tears are essential for good eye health.
      Allergy is caused by an oversensitive immune system, which leads to a misdirected immune response. The immune system normally protects the body against harmful substances, such as bacteria and viruses. It reacts to substances (allergens) that are generally harmless and in most people do not cause a problem.

      Sometimes burning and itching eyes are due to environmental pollutants that might be eliminated by social action. If secondhand cigarette smoke is annoying, say so.

      Treatment for Burning eyes

      Artificial tears used four-to-six times a day can also relieve symptoms. Avoid over-the-counter eye drops other than artificial tears because they will eventually make symptoms worse.

      Antihistamines in the form of eye-drops or ointments may be prescribed. Cortisone-like eye ointments are not often prescribed. These medications will reduce many types of inflammation, but can make certain infections, such as herpes, worse.

      Conserving the tears in your own eyes is another approach to keeping the eyes moist. Tears drain out of the eye through a small canal into the nose (that is why your nose runs when you cry). Your ophthalmologist may close these canals either temporarily or permanently. This closure conserves your own tears and makes artificial tears last longer.

      So wash your eyes in a regular interval of time with cold water & avoid the contacts. If there is no change then better consult a doctor……..

  3. What is your experience with a Chalazion of the eye?
    Have you had to have a steroid injection and or surgery? Please give me all feedback.
    How bad is surgery though? who wants to have surgery on their eye?

  4. Small red -ish itchy bump in the corner of my eye?
    I don’t know what to do because i don’t want to go to the doctor for them to say it’s not a big deal. But at some points it itches like crazy!

    • It sounds like you might have a sty. this can be caused by a plugged pore or hair follicle.

      The most common recommendation for getting rid of styes is to apply a warm compress to the infected area. Warm up a pot of water or just use hot tap water to dampen a wash cloth, then hold the cloth over your eye for 15 minutes at a time. Do this several times a day for as long as it take for the sty to drain on its own. The best thing for getting rid of styes is to let them drain on their own, that way you’re sure to avoid secondary infection that could be brought on if you attempt to pop the sty or rupture the inflamed skin.

      Over-the-counter antibiotic ointments like Neosporin can help get rid of styes. In fact, some companies like Neosporin have special antibiotic sty treatments where you apply a strip that sticks to your eyelid for a period of time.

      If this doesn’t take care of it go see your doctor for some drops to put in your eyes that will ge rid of the sty.

      Wash you hands beore touching anywhere around your eyes.

  5. What’s wrong with my eyelid?
    About a month ago I developed a rash on my eyelid. It’s flakey and itchy and red and I can’t figure out what it is. My skin there is peeling off and I thoughout it was just try skin but it has become bumpy also and started to spread to my other eyelid. It hurts and I just can’t figure out what it is.

    • See a Dermatologist. Skin rashes can spread FAST, and over-the-counter ointments aren’t that great for close eye contact, so your primary physician, and get his input. If he feels as if over-the-counter will not work, or he is not quite sure, he will either push you to a Derm, or prescribe you to Rash Ointment. It’s quite hard to tell with no picture.

  6. How do you get rid of pink eye?
    I woke up in the morning today and my eye burned does anyone have any remedies?

  7. I have blepharitis or granulated eyelids, how serious is this and are there home remedies?

    • я standaяrds ۞ – Blepharitis commonly occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of the eyelashes malfunction. This leads to inflamed, irritated and itchy eyelids. Several diseases and conditions can cause blepharitis. Blepharitis is often a chronic condition that is difficult to treat. Blepharitis can be uncomfortable and may be unattractive, but it usually doesn’t cause permanent damage to your eyesight.

      Treatment for blepharitis can include:
      Cleaning the affected area regularly. Cleaning your eyelids with a warm washcloth can help control signs and symptoms. Self-care measures may be the only treatment necessary for most cases of blepharitis. Antibiotics. Eye drops containing antibiotics applied to your eyelids may help control blepharitis caused by a bacterial infection. In certain cases, antibiotics are administered in cream, ointment or pill form. Steroid eyedrops or ointments. Eye drops or ointments containing steroids can help control inflammation in your eyes and your eyelids. Artificial tears. Lubricating eye drops or artificial tears, which are available over-the-counter, may help relieve dry eyes.

      Treating underlying conditions. Blepharitis caused by seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea or other diseases may be controlled by treating the underlying disease. Blepharitis rarely disappears completely. Even with successful treatment, relapses are common.

  8. How do you know if yo have pink eye?
    A few days ago my eye started to itch and hurt a little. I didn’t think anything of it and then today I woke up and the bottom of my eye is swollen and hurts to blink or anything. I don’t think its pink eye because its not blood shot and its not crusty or anything but I have never had anything like this happen. I have a new born baby so I want to make sure its nothing she can get. How do I know if its pink eye and do I call the eye dr. or my dr. office?

  9. Puffy eyelids: Mascara Allergy :(?
    About 8 days ago, I developed an allergy to a new mascara. My eyelids became swollen, red and itchy. I did whatever the pharmacist said- benadryl, cold compress.. I’ve even tried putting tea bags on my eyes, and every morning I put a cold soda can on my eyes. It’s a lot better now- my eyelids aren’t itchy or anything. BUT at the base of the eyelids, right where my eyelashes are, it’s a bit puffy. It seems that no matter what I do, my eyelids don’t get completely normal. It’s not so noticeable to others, but I can see that it’s still a little puffy. How long does it take to go back to normal? And is there anything else that can quickly help it? Thanks!

    • You might have also gotten a small infection in one of the lash hair follicles triggered by the mascara and the subsequent allergy. I’m guessing that because allergy symptoms if treated well should disappear within 4-5 days and you’re well beyond that. Best would be to go to your doctor or even an optician / eye specialist and let them have a closer look. There are good antiseptic eye ointments available over the counter and you could ask your pharmacist for advice.

      Hope it clears up soon. Good luck.

  11. How can you prevent pink eye?
    I just had my weekend visit with my kids. My ex now informs me that both have pink eye (my daughter did show some signs over the weekend). While we were all cautious, and kept clear of contact with her eyes and hands, how can I be sure none of us in the house were infected, and if we were, are there precautions I can take to avoid symptoms from showing up?

  12. Very swollen itchy eyelid margin?
    I woke up one morning and I felt something hurting on my eyelashes. I looked in the mirror and it was a bump and a eyelash falling out. I plucked the eyelash out. Till this day the eyelid became larger and larger. More eyelashes came out. How do I reduce the swelling all the way? What do I have to use?

    • Apply warm, wet compresses for 5 to 10 minutes, 3 to 6 times a day. This usually helps the area heal faster. It may also help open a blocked pore so that it can drain and start to heal.
      Use an over-the-counter treatment. Try an ointment (such as Stye), solution (such as Bausch and Lomb Eye Wash), or medicated pads (such as Ocusoft Lid Scrub).

  13. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this,
    such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you can do
    with some p.c. to force the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
