Red Eyes: Causes and Cure

‘Red-eyes’ is a particular condition that you’ve probably had at least once in your life.

Let’s find out the answers related to red eyes and red-eye treatment in this blog and be aware of what our eyes are going through. 

When the blood vessels on the white or pale surface of the eye become enlarged, it is known as “Redeye”. It can be accompanied by other unpleasant red eye symptoms such as itching, discomfort, or blurred vision. Red eyes can be a sign of minor irritation or a severe medical condition, such as an infection. 

Red eyes can also occur without any additional symptoms such as pain or irritation in the eyes. As it turns out, red eyes could stem from a variety of illnesses and issues. The following are the most common of them

1.Allergic reaction – 

Many of us get red eyes due to allergies that make the eyes feel stuffy and itchy. Pollen, chemicals, certain foods, contact lens solutions, and several other things can induce an allergic effect resulting in red eyes. For red-eye treatments, it is always safer to consult your ophthalmologist as soon as possible. 

2. Dry eyes – 

Your tears may not have the texture that they should. They could evaporate quickly. Your eye may also be unable to produce tears at all. ‘Dry eye’ is the medical term for such a condition. It can result in pain, corneal ulcers, and, in rare cases, visual loss.

3. Other dry eye symptoms include

  • A gritty sensation
  • A burning sensation
  • Blurry vision
  • Droopy eyelids
  • The inability to cry
  • A stringy discharge
  • Signs of eye tiredness.
  • Discomfort due to contact lenses

4. Strain in the eyes

Excessive computer use can cause eye strain, ultimately leading to red eyes. Staring at a computer screen for an extended period of time can make your eyes feel tired and cause burning and itching. We tend to blink less frequently while staring at computer screens, which could be one cause of computer eye syndrome. It’s an excellent exercise to take frequent breaks and to make an attempt to blink more frequently.

5. Pinkeye – 

Pinkeye, also known as conjunctivitis, is an inflammation of the lining of your eyelid and the white of your eye. A virus or bacteria can cause it. It’s prevalent, especially for children, and could also be highly contagious. If you suspect you have pink eyes, see your doctor as soon as possible, wash your hands frequently, and avoid rubbing your eyes.

6. Broken blood vessels – 

When small blood vessels underneath your eye break, blood starts to accumulate in your eye, turning the white of your eye red. A powerful sneeze, heavy lifting, hard vomiting, or wiping your eye too hard can all trigger this condition.

7. Red-eye treatments –

Red eyes can appear suddenly or gradually. You should see a doctor if the redness does not go away and is accompanied by other symptoms. A doctor can assist you in determining the source of your red eyes symptoms. An ophthalmologist is best suited for red eye treatment.
