Allergy and dry eyes: Dry eyes can exacerbate allergic conjunctivitis. You will need to maximize your dry eye treatment (beyond just Restasis). Are you using OTC allergy drops? Prescription- strength allergy drops are much more effective. See your eye MD.

sensation of something in eye and itchy eyes. Got like a brown mark which I can see if I pull my left eye lid up it is on the white of my eye?

 sensation of something in eye and itchy eyes. Got like a brown mark which I can see if I pull my left eye lid up it is on the white of my eye?

Need more info: Sounds uncomfortable! Was the brown mark there before? Many people have small birthmarks in the white part of their eyes, which aren't worrisome. Itchy eyes and a feeling of grit in the eyes could be many things - allergies, small foreign particles, small cuts on the eye surface, etc. I'm not sure the brown spot is related if it is in the same place and doesn't move.

Is there a good way to relieve itchy eyes when eye drops are not available?

Is there a good way to relieve itchy eyes when eye drops are not available?

Cool compresses: Occasionally, a cool wet washcloth over the eyes can temporarily relieve the symptoms. Heat can actually make the eyes more itchy. The best option, however, is an eye examination to determine the cause and provide a directed treatment.

Does oxymetazoline eye drops help with burning, itchy eyes, or only to remove redness?

Anti-allergic: This is an anti-histamine which has some degree of effectiveness (it used to be a prescription only item). It will help with burning and itching that is of allergic origin. Any redness removed will be due to the anti-allergic effectiveness.

I have red eyes and itchy eyes and I brought optrex eye drops will they make my eyes worser?

I have red eyes and itchy eyes and I brought optrex eye drops will they make my eyes worser?

Probably not: Optrex is not an American company nor am I aware that they legally distribute products in the USA, however they do make artificial lubricants and possibly some decongestant products also that are probably safe to use. These drops contain preservatives that sometimes cause allergy. See an eye doctor if symptoms persist.

What allergy eye drops can I purchase to relieve itchy eyes due to the high pollen count during the summer?

What allergy eye drops can I purchase to relieve itchy eyes due to the high pollen count during the summer?

Antihistamine: While lubricating drops help some, antihistamines drops do the most for eye allergy symptoms, including itching & watering. There are many over-the-counter antihistamine products to choose from. Older products may be combined with decongestants which decrease redness; however, overuse of these products may cause increased rebound redness. Plain antihistamine drops are your best bet for itching.

Can a four month old baby use gentamycin and dexamethasone eye drops for his itchy eyes prescribed by an opthalmo;ogist?

Can a four month old baby use gentamycin and dexamethasone eye drops for his itchy eyes prescribed by an opthalmo;ogist?

Yes: If an ophthalmologist has examined the baby & found it appropriate to use it is a good medication. I defer use of the eye drop combinations using Dexamethasone to the ophthalmologists because they have the additional training & equipment to spot issues where use would not be wise.

Burning itchy eyes. Not allergic but taking prescribed antihistamines and eye drops. Feels like sand in eyes but no injury occurred.

Burning itchy eyes. Not allergic but taking prescribed antihistamines and eye drops. Feels like sand in eyes but no injury occurred.

Dry eye is treated: differently from other issues such as ocular inflammation or allergies. But, they commonly can present with the same symptoms. Usually lubricating eye drops are first line therapy for dry eyes. Studies have shown that Omega-3 supplements may help as well. We can also place punctual plugs and use topical cyclosporine ophthalmic emulsion drops are some of many potential treatments.

Red, itchy eyes, especially at the end of the day. I use zyrtec (cetirizine) and eye drops daily, even prescription drops didn't help. Ointment made them redder! ideas?

Sounds like Dry eye: Try using artificial tears especially before the irritation starts. Avoid smoke, wind on eyes, take breaks while reading or using the computer. If no improvement in several days i would recommend that you see your eye doctor.
