Blow To The Eye
Get checked ASAP: All eye injuries should be checked by an ophthalmologist as soon as possible. The headaches may be from the development of traumatic iritis, which is inflammation in the eye from trauma. It usually causes aching, light sensitivity, redness, and often blurred vision. Any injury bad enough to cause iritis might also have led to retinal damage or other problems, to get checked! ...Read more
I had a retina detachment surgery/scleral buckle 3 months ago. Can I sparr in the ring with a head gear that protects me from direct blows to the eye?
No: A retinal detachment is an extremely dangerous event. You could lose permanent vision in that eye. It also means protecting vision in the other eye very very important. An accidental blow to your head and eye could permanently leave you blind. No amount of head gear can protect you from that. Best wishes. ...Read more

Cold air blowing in right eye day after washing muscle rub out with water and rubbing with towel. What is it? Is it temporary?
I was hit in the face recently and now when I blow my nose my eye moves like outward due to the pressure, why is it doing this?
Emergency problem: After facial trauma to eye sockets or the sinuses, a person SHOULD NOT blow her nose. If she blows her nose, air and bacteria can be forced through the cracked bones and into the space behind the eyeball, thus pushing the eyeball forward. Bad things like and infection behind the eyeball and even blindness can happen. An eye MD doctor and an ENT doctor should evaluate now; or one can visit the E.R. ...Read more

Usually not: Unless the air is coming at a high pressure, blowing air into the eyes will not cause any significant harm except for a mild drying effect. Higher pressure situations may cause a corneal abrasion, which should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Low pressure air may cause a dry sensation or a temporary sensation that something is in the eye. ...Read more
I don't have hot compress or extra towels so I used a hair dryer on medium to blow hot air on my eye, while closed of course, cause it's developing a stye. Safe to use dryer? Seemed to help a lot.
Should I be concerned if lately when blowing my nose my left eye waters, it just recently started happening? This hasn't happened before.

If you were to blow too hard when useing the frenzel maneuver to clear your ears could it cause damage to the eye resulting in a change in iris color?
No: Your iris cannot change color that way! It is possible to pop a blood vessel in the white area though. This would cause a red spot there. ...Read more
Crystalline lens: Your eye is a complicated organ system. Inside the front of the eye there is a fluid chamber between the cornea and the colored part of your eye, called the iris. In the center of the iris there is an opening called the pupil and behind that another chamber between the iris and the crystalline lens. The lens is a disc shaped living tissue composed of regularly arranged collagen with a capsule. ...Read more
Often w/o Symptoms: This condition is classically a multi organ inflammatory condition. Specific to the eye, inflammation occurs in the front (iritis) and back (uveitis) of the eye, optic nerve, and lacrimal gland tissue as well. The exact cause of this condition is not known, but it's considerable, often without symptoms, and profound in certain patients. Therefore, I would highly recommend that every patient with sarcoidosis be examined by an amount just regularly. Please take care of this. ...Read more
Uric acid effect:
Patients with gout (a form of arthritis) have elevated uric acid levels.
There are reports in the literature where there is evidence that deposits of uric acid crystals in the eyes of patient with gout have caused damage to eye structures such as the sclerotic, the choroid and the bacillary layer of the retina and cases of episcleritis have occurred concomitantly with an acute episode of gout. ...Read more
Eyeball feature: This is a yellowish patch of cells occasionally seen on the surface conjunctiva of the eyeball. More often on the nasal side, if present it is usually at the corneal/scleral junction. It is of little if any significance and is more often found in older people. ...Read more
Natural: We all have pigment cells in various layers of our skin and eye. The pigment within the cells can increase with age, change in hormones (pregnancy), and of course sun exposure. When the cells themselves start multiplying and moving and growing where they don't belong-this is cancer. ...Read more
Cataract surgery: When a cataract is removed from the eye, an artificial lens, also known as an intraocular lens is put in to replace the focusing power. This device is also known as a pseudophake (false lens) as it is not the natural lens. So an eye after cataract surgery is said in some cases to contain a pseudophake. ...Read more
Too little info: Tingling is a very non-specific symptom, and as such it is difficult to even imagine what might be wrong. If itching is meant, that can be from allergic disease, if it is following trauma with fracture of the orbital bones, it can be a pinched nerve, or it may be related to dry eye, which can cause twitching and tingling, to name just a few possibilities of a long list. ...Read more
Many possibilities: The 3 most common in my experience are dry eye, recurrent corneal erosions, and corneal abrasion. It is possible for more serious causes and likely should have this checked by an ophthalmologist, particularly if the pain is associated with blurry or decreased vision. ...Read more
