I'm 20yo. In pics I have red eye effect in both eyes but the pupil is more bright red in left eye and greater in diameter as compared to the right eye?

Anisocoria: Pupil size inequalities (anisocoria) requires an eye exam, and it should be done right away. There are important things to rule out to ensure that your pupils are normal. About 20% of individuals have this normally (physiologic), whereas others may have it on the basis of disease or medications. The latter causes: 3rd nerve palsy, horner's, aidies, certain drugs (eg eye meds), injury, inflamed i. ...Read more

I lost soft contact lens in my eyes, fornix , they have folded and ruptured, and small particles of this lens were falling in my eye, im seeing floaters.

Floaters: There is no association between your contact lens tearing and the development of floaters. If your eye is still irritated from possible contact fragments on your eye surface then you should be evaluated by your eye doctor to have these fragments removed. In addition, your eye doctor will evaluate your floaters (which are inside your eye) to rule out any internal eye problems. ...Read more

Eye field test and tomography showed that my eye nerves are healthy but scotomas are floating in my left eye(hardly noticeable)Will they get bigger?

Eye field test and tomography showed that my eye nerves are healthy but scotomas are floating in my left eye(hardly noticeable)Will they get bigger?

Maybe: It is important to establish the actual cause of the scotomas. There is a type of glaucoma called normal tension glaucoma where the eye pressure measures in a range that would be normal for others but still causes damage in the patient. Scotomas can also be caused by migraines and other neurological causes. Health of the optic nerve is first assessed with a dilated fundus exam. ...Read more

Woke up with one eyelid swollen and under both eyes has puffiness. Under eye puffy is worse in the eye that the lid is swollen in ?

Possible stye: Styes are common and usually imply less than perfect eyelid hygiene. Hot compresses are the single best treatment initially along with vigorous lid cleaning using warm water and terry washcloth. Compresses should be as hot as tolerable and at least 3-4x/day. If your eye is also red and draining you may have conjunctivitis; need a topical antibiotic drop. See your Eye Doctor if not better 48hrs ...Read more

I put allergy eye drops in her eye & noticed a red vein with a dark spot at end, in both eyes. In same area. Drops made her eyes burn more.

I put allergy eye drops in her eye & noticed a red vein with a dark spot at end, in both eyes. In same area. Drops made her eyes burn more.

Type of drop: Without an actual picture, it is hard to tell what the problem is. As for burning- when the eyes are irritated , even plain saline may burn. On the other hand, an antihistamine eye drop called Optivar tends to cause more burning than others. Try refrigerating the eye drop to see if it cuts down the sting. ...Read more

Not sure: Based on your description it is difficult to know for sure what you were talking about. It may be a benign I finding or something that is more concerning. I'd recommend seeing an eye provider to look at it, especially if it is causing you any pain, change in vision or other symptoms. ...Read more
