Recurrent erosion: In this disease, the basement membrane of the cornea is damaged, usually from a prior trauma that did not heal correctly. In the wee hours of the morning when your eye is moving under closed lids, the epithelium overlying the damaged basement membrane becomes loose and a defect forms, giving you pain and tearing. There are many different treatments for this. Please see your ophthalmologist

I have eye pain, and looks like blood vessels have burst in my eyes, right when I wake up in the morning and later on it dosnt hurt. What is this?

Subconjunctival heme: A subconjunctival hemorrhage, depending on its size, can take up to 3 weeks or more to resolve. As long as it is improving and your vision is not affected, and you are not experiencing significant pain, you can just follow it along. You may use some artificial tears for some slight irritation. You probably had rubbed your eye during sleep, which stretched and broke a blood vessel. ...Read more

Hi doctors. I have problem waking up in the morning with pain in my right eye. I'm a heavy smoker and does it have anything to do with my eye pain.?

Hi doctors. I have problem waking up in the morning with pain in my right eye. I'm a heavy smoker and does it have anything to do with my eye pain.?

Yes,: Smoking can irritate the surface of the eyes and also cause the tear film to evaporate causing a state of dry eye. When the eyes dry out, the corneal surface can break down causing pain. So give up smoking, use artificial tears, and buy a humidifier and this may alleviate some of the pain. Better yet, make an appointment to see an eye md and they will help diagnose and treat your condition. ...Read more

Headache type: You mention symptoms suggestive of tension headache. Radiating toward the eyes suggests the potential of a migraine. I find sinus headache needs to be considered. Have seen patients who don't have runny nose or overt symptoms but frontal headaches who have sinus infection seen clearly on scan. Cold, allergies possible? If it doesn't respond to pain reliever and persists talk to doc. ...Read more

Help me! I went to bed last night and I plugd up woke up this morning and under right eye hurts and under right jaw bone hurts badly to touch. .

Sinus Infection: The symptoms you describe of being plugged up, I presume nasal congestion, and now facial pain and tenderness to the touch, would need to be evaluated by a physician. Tenderness on touch (we call palpation) over the sinuses is a sign of a sinus infection. With one side involved, the doctor would evaluate your eye movements as well for other possible complications. Please contact your doctor. ...Read more
