I have allergies and my eyes are affected the most. They r red nd itchy. What can I do.
Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. This will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to.

Hello allergy and infection are 2 different entities. In case she has had an insect bite, it is most likely to be allergic in nature, and this will require anti allergic eye drops if the interior of the eye is involved. Externally you can start ice/ cold water compresses for immediate relief but pls visit an eye surgeon. Sometimes the swelling in the allergy can have a superadded infection. These conditions require medications after examining by an ophthalmic surgeon.

It is not bulging. It is called as edema. Avastin and laser will definitely help but if your sugar levels are not under strict control then no measures in the world will help you. Keep your sugar levels under strict control no matter what.

Hi probably, you are exposed to sun, most of the time. Causing red eyes and excess formation of malenine hence, your lips appear black. * take plenty of water to dilute blood to regulate proper blood circulation and eliminating toxins, as well homoeo-care * @ belladonna 30-4 drops/thrice a day. @ thuja occ30-4 drops/thrice a day avoid sun exposure or carry an umbrella. All the best.

No squint cannot be corrected by laser. You will have to undergo surgery on extraocular muscles (muscles around the eye which are responsible for eye movements) to align your eyes correctly.
