I would like to help for my eyes problem so much water come through the eye I feel very bed what can I do for my health please help me.
I am almost 27 years old, male. I got LASIK done about 1.5 years back. Post the surgery, I'v always had some problem or the other with my eyes. I have on many many occasions felt one of my eyes had become smaller. I also had an eye infection soon after my LASIK but was it had not relation with that. I'v had difficulty watching movies in theatre/laptop most of the times. On and off, after consulting the doctor I have taken tear lubricants. This problem is especially severe in winter, I think. Now, since the past 2.5 months the problem has been increasing. Now I have immediate dry eyes while using laptop, tv or driving. Even if I use the lubricant five minutes before I sit down infant of the laptop, I get uncomfortable within minutes. One side of my heads starts to get strained, and it reaches the back of my head. This stress in my head then lasts for a while even if I don't strain my eyes. I have also been taking omega-3. I generally drink decent amount of water as well. I am also finding it very difficult to capture everything in front of me, which causes difficulty in driving/watching tv. Also, please note there have been days where I did not use laptop/tv/drive, but even then I get the strain in my head by evening. I have difficulty looking at people after a few seconds, and eventually become so cripple by night that I have to go to bed. As the evening progresses, so does my need to use the lubricant. What can be done?
A red eye is one of the first and most common symptoms of conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the tissue that lies over the white part of the eye and lines the inner side of the eyelid. It is usually the result of a viral infection and can easily spread from one person to another. Conjunctivitis can also be a symptom of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) like Gonorrhea or Chlamydia. In newborns, conjunctivitis can be vision threatening, while in grownups it is not considered a serious health risk. The symptoms of conjunctivitis differ according to the cause of the infection.
Some common symptoms of conjunctivitis are:
- Green or white discharge from the eye
- Redness of the white part of the eye
- Inflammation of the eyelid
- Waking up to crusted yellow discharge
- Itchiness and burning in the eyes
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Blurred vision
An eye examination and testing a sample of the fluid secreted by the eye can be used to diagnose conjunctivitis. It can easily be treated at home and does not require hospitalization. Antibiotics are often given in the form of eye drops and ointments to treat conjunctivitis. These usually need to be applied 3 to 4 times a day for a period of 5 to 6 days. Wash your eyes before putting the eye drops. Once applied, close your eyes and roll the eyeball around to distribute the medicine and keep it from overflowing out of the eye. Wash your hands immediately after applying the eye drops.
Viral conjunctivitis is highly contagious. If you are suffering from it, you should take a few days off work and restrict your social interactions. Wash your hands frequently as you may unconsciously rub your eyes. This is especially important with regards to meals and finger foods. Also, avoid sharing towels, pillowcases, etc. to minimize the transmission of the disease from one person to another.
Avoid using makeup while being treated for conjunctivitis. With conjunctivitis, the eye is more sensitive to irritants and thus, a speck of makeup can worsen the situation. Also avoid contacts. If you wear contacts regularly, dispose the current set and start using a fresh set after your doctor gives you a clean chit.
Artificial tears or non prescription eye drops can also be used to relieve the itchiness and burning in the infected eye. If only one eye had been affected by conjunctivitis, do not use the same eye drop bottle for both eyes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.
