If my eyes are red 24/7 does that mean I need glasses?
i dont drink or smoke..im only 15.. my eyes are red even in winter all yr round , i just noticed that. Asked by Eulah Escalera 1 year ago.

Im 15, I get lots of sleep and I exercise regularly. all of my family members wear glasses except me. I have really good vision but my eyes are always red and with veins all the time..my eyes arent dry either. they are just red. I can see everything clearly better than most average people. Why are my eyes red? does it mean I need glasses? Answered by Etha Spella 1 year ago.

Conjunctivitis Allergic - red eyes, normal vision, itchy, stringy secretions, acute or chronic. Rx cool compress, mast cell inhibitors (Patanol, Livostin,etc), steroids for short term use. Patients with seasonal allergies should begin treatment with a mast cell inhibitor (Patanol) just prior to the season. Bacterial - red eyes, normal vision, mucous secretions, lids stuck together, acute or chronic. Rx Antibiotic drops (Garamycin, Tobrex, Ocuflox, Ciloxan) Viral - red eyes, normal vision, watery secretions, often associated with sore throat. Rx cool compress, artificial tears, or an eye doctor might prescribe combination antibiotic/steroid drops for short term use. Like the flu the drops do not cure the condition. They reduce symptoms. Viral conjunctivitis is often very contagious. Washing your hands reduces chances of catching or transmitting conjunctivitis. Answered by Clinton Nostrand 1 year ago.

It probably means you rub your eyes and you have allergies. Get some "Get the Red out" eye drops at Walmart next time. Give that a try. Another thought.....are you getting soap or shampoo in your eyes often? Just wondering. Good luck. Answered by Norene Hermanns 1 year ago.

May be you have an allergie? Or maybe you are staring at a computer for a long time without protection. I would ask for a doctors opinion. Specially if it has been going on for more than a few days. Answered by Gaynell Wiggs 1 year ago.

This is a bit hard to answer.It could be a number of possible thinks but most likely you are suffering from an allergy and you need a proper allergy test done by specialist MD. Answered by Brittney Majcher 1 year ago.

Probably glasses, but do you drink or smoke? This could cause red eyes as well. Try visine or clear eyes for the redness. Answered by Sam Cheon 1 year ago.

Could be a number of things. Allergies are a candidate for red eyes, even if they don't itch. Ask your doctor. Answered by Ashely Exner 1 year ago.

Prior to August 2006 (last summer/fall), I never had any major sinus problems that involved my eyes. Mucous in the nose, chest etc, yes, but not anywhere else. But I'm visiting my mom last August, I'm wearing contact lenses at the time. My left eye itches, I rub it, and within minutes, it has swollen up like a marble. Then at random times, I have build up that I have to remove with a Q-tip(looks like string cheese!) from the eye. I stopped having the problem back in April, but now it has resurfaced. I recently had a contact lense examination, but the doctor found nothing out of the ordinary, but I neglected to mention this at the time. The builld up/mucous isn't excessive, but is annoying. Have I got problem on my hands or a new allergy that's going to rear its ugly head every fall until I'm 60 years old? Answered by Albertha Mato 1 year ago.

Why are the eyes an easy target for allergies? When you open your eyes, the conjunctiva becomes directly exposed to the environment without the help of a filtering system such as the cilia, the hairs commonly found in the nose. People who are susceptible to allergic eye disease are those with a history of allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis and those with a strong family and/or personal history of allergy. Symptoms usually appear before the age of 30. The scenario for developing allergy symptoms is much the same for the eyes as that for the nose. Allergens cause the allergy antibody, IgE, to coat numerous mast cells in the conjunctiva. Upon reexposure to the allergen, the mast cell is prompted to release histamine and other mediators. The result is itching, burning, and runny eyes that become red due to inflammation, and resulting congestion. The eyelids may swell, even to the point of closing altogether. Sometimes, the conjunctiva swells with fluid and protrudes from the surface of the eye, resembling a "hive" on the eye. These reactions may also induce light sensitivity. Typically, both eyes are affected by an allergic reaction. Occasionally, only one eye is involved, particularly when only one eye is rubbed with an allergen. Allergic conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva that is caused by a reaction to allergens. The inflammation causes enlargement of the blood vessels in the conjunctiva ("congestion"), resulting in a red, or blood- shot appearance of the eyes. How do we care for allergic eyes? Most people with eye allergies treat themselves and do so quite effectively with OTC products. If these remedies are not working or if there is eye pain, extreme redness, or heavy discharge, you should seek medical advice. Some conditions, for example, are serious with potential sight-threatening complications if needed treatment is delayed. Avoid the Triggers Avoidance is once again the cornerstone of allergy treatment. It is particularly important to avoid both airborne and contact allergens. Remember, rubbing your eyes is a physical trigger and therefore must be avoided. Topical Antihistamines & Decongestants Antihistamine eye drops work by blocking histamine receptors in the conjunctiva. The histamine, therefore, is unable to attach to the conjunctiva. They are effective in relieving itching, but have little impact on swelling or redness. They have two advantages over antihistamine tablets; there is a quicker onset of action and less drying of the eye. The new generation of topical antihistamines includes Emadine (emedastine difumarate) and Livostin (levocabastine). The side effects of these medications include mild stinging and burning of the eyes upon use, headaches, and sleepiness. Decongestants take the redness away as advertised. However, they do not help relieve itching. They act by shrinking the blood vessels on the conjunctiva. (They are not really effective against allergic eyes.) The decongestants, Visine LR (oxymetazdine) and Visine Original (tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride), are available OTC. They do have a potential for abuse and should not be used by persons with narrow angle glaucoma, an eye disease featuring elevated pressure within the eye. Allergy Assist The prolonged use of decongestant nasal sprays can produce a rebound phenomenon, in which the medication begins to cause more congestion than it relieves. This phenomenon rarely occurs in the eyes with the repeated use of decongestant drops. The mucous membranes of the eye are different from those of the nose. The eyes can become irrit8ated and less responsive to the drops, but unlike the nose, the eyes tend not to develop "rebound" redness. Combination antihistamine-decongestant preparations can provide quick relief that lasts a few hours. They lessen the itch, redness and swelling and are very useful for milder symptoms. Common combinations include Naphcon A or Opcon A (pheniramine with naphcyoline hydrochloride) and Vasocon A (antazoline with naphaydine). Side effects are minimal, but the drops may become less effective if used for prolonged periods. They do have a potential for abuse and should not be used by persons with narrow angle glaucoma.

yes you do have a problem on your hands. I mean that literally. you see, what you have is a severe contact lens infection. caused by improper cleansing of the lens, soft contact lens wearers, and the type of solution you are using. your condition is called (microbial keratitis) a doctor cannot help you. the kind of physician you need to see is an ophthalmologist. sometimes when ppl. who wear contact lens clean their Len's, they do it improperly. instead of just running them through the water,you rub the solution into the lens and massage both sides. then rinse. its called the rub and rinse method. store this in your memory for future use. and see a ophthalmologist as soon as you can. b-4 you damage your cornea to the point of blindness, or replacement surgery.

Asked by Ivory Carranco 1 year ago.

I have a pimple underneath my upper eyelid that you can only see if you flip my upper eyelid. It's scratching against my eye and is VERY uncomfortable. I had to hold my eyelid out until i fell asleep. So I went to the doctor and he gave me gentamyacin eye drops. Used them for a week and it still wasn't better. So I went to another doctor and he gave me vigamox eye drops.. i've been using it for a week and still nothing!! So I'm very desperate now and don't know what to do. It's at the point where I almost wish I couldn't see if that would stop it! Also, I've been using hot compresses and don't wear any eye makeup and still have this problem! Anyone go through this? Any help is appreciated! Answered by Karla Fenster 1 year ago.

Sounds like a Hordeolum or Chalazion (pocket of pus). The warm compress is key, and it needs to be warm and you need to do it like every 30 minutes until that thing starts draining. You'll know when it pops and stats draining, you will feel better and there will be a bunch of white stuff coming out of your eye. The other issue is, there could be a foreign object stuck there. If you haven't gone to an Ophthomologist (eye doctor) then go see one so they can do a good exam, they may even drain it for you. good luck Answered by Jenee Miene 1 year ago.

NATURAL ACNE PROTOCOL 1/ Never, ever touch your face. 2/ Use 3 facecloths to wash your face, one to soap on, one to soap off with very hot water, one to rinse off with ice cold water, in that order, once a day. 3/ If you are under 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A once a day with a full meal 4/ If you are over 18 take 5,000 IU of vitamin A twice a day with a full meal. Do not get pregnant while taking vitamin A. Do not take any more, like Accutane, it will stop you growing. 5/ Never, ever. pick, squeeze or pop your spot. Read number 1 again. 6/ Do this for 90 days. 7/ Invest in a brand new pillow and 2 new or more pillow cases to �double bag' your pillow. HOT wash every couple of days. Source: A bit of advice given to me as a teenager, a bit of science as I am studying allergic reactions and vitamin A is a part of that. A bit of research: I sat in a lecture at the back and watched the acne prone pick at their faces, those with the worse acne touched their faces 32 times in an hour, the clearest complexions didn't touch their faces even once. I have circumstantial evidence that acne is the result of dermatophyte transfer from hands to face...where it does not get washed off and is well fed by hormones, sweat a nd oil...just a hypothesis... But it would explain why vitamin A is so effective as vitamin causes skin to remove dermatophytes.

Sleeping in touch lenses lowers the volume of oxygen getting via on your eyes, as a result placing you at a bigger danger for eye infections. The simplest approach to inform whether it is an illness or if you happen to quite simply indignant your eyes is to visit an eye fixed surgeon. If it's an illness it's fundamental to have it checked out instantly; a few forms of infections can get very extreme and purpose scarring and blindness. There are distinct manufacturers of contacts that may be accurately slept in (made from more moderen, extra breathable elements) however you have to speak together with your surgeon to look if you are a well candidate.
