Every morning I wake up with a burning and sticky eye. It is usually hot all day. Just small drop of water helps me open it in the morning. What to do?
See an eye doctor: Burning eyes are often a sign of dry eyes. The dried mucous and oils collect around the lashes and can cause them to stick together. The fact that this is occuring in only one eye and that it feels hot all may signify an eye infection. Rather than treating this on your own, see an eye doctor who can start you on the appropriate treatment regimen before it becomes worse. ...Read more

Ask your pharmacist for an over the counter eye drop suggestion but if symptoms are not improved after a few days consider seeing your MD ...Read more

See Eye MD: Symptoms of burning and tearing can be from many causes, but none related to whether or not you wear glasses. Most likely cause is (paradoxically, because of the "tearing" symptom) dry eye syndrome, but blepharitis, conjunctivitis, and other causes are possible too. See an ophthalmologist to help sort it out. ...Read more
Right eye has been red for 2 days. No burning, itching, pain, goop or swelling. Eye has watered today. Started 10mg lexapro (escitalopram) week ago. Why is eye red?
Lexapro (escitalopram) not culprit:
Hi AmandaL- In my experience, Lexapro (escitalopram) is unlikely to cause red eye in just one eye. If it was a drug reaction, it would be more likely to be in both eyes.
It could be: allergies, eye contamination, eye trauma such as a scratch.
Good luck. Hope you feel better. ...Read more
