Can severe allergy cause eye and nasal pain and feeling of nystagmus?

Feeling of nystagmus: I think so, yes, but nystagmus is not felt, it is seen. It is important which direction it is. It will be hard for you to see, but a bystander should see it, and a video of your eyes looking forward and in four directions would help someone who cannot see you face to face. Good luck! ...Read more

Been 2 two different eye docs. Both says allergies but red lines on eyes since July. Eye pain behind eyelid comes and goes.now seeing eyelashes. Why?

Blepharitis?: Inflammation of inner lining of eyelids can cause irritation of the eyeball, leading to redness. It can also cause the eyelashes to be redirected toward the eye so that they enter the field of vision. Your symptoms are suggestive of blepharitis. You should ask about this. Make sure you see an ophthalmologist (someone who treats eye disease), not just an optometrist (who just prescribes lenses). ...Read more

My 51/2 yr old says her rt eye hurts its a little red says hurts to blink gave her allergy meds eye drops and ibprophen please help?

Poss foreign body: Hurting to blink suggests a speck of dust is under the upper eyelid. If you can gently pull the upper lid from the globe, and irrigate with eyewash or saline, you might dislodge the offending particle. If copious irrigation is unsuccessful, an ophthalmologist should be able to assess the situation with anesthetic drops. Antibiotic drops are a better choice than the allergy drops; Ibuprofen is okay. ...Read more

Having some pain in l eye...Hurts to press on it when closed and some orbital pain. No trauma, redness, swelling, itching, etc. Allergies?

See eye doctor soon: I am concerned that you may have a glaucoma issue and if not treated promptly may end up becoming blind. It is only prudent for you to consult an eye doctor (not an optometrist) asap. ...Read more
