Swolen eyelid edges, itchy inner corners, eye pain, twichy lids, light sensitivity, hi ocular presure but nothing else found by opthamlogist. What's cause?

Blepharitis: All the symptoms except high eye pressure are caused by blepharitis, inflammation of the eyelid. Your body's natural oil builds up on the edge of your eyelid around the lashes. Normal bacteria eat the built up oil and then secrete a toxin which irritates the eyes and eyelids. Removal of the oil through a special cleaning technique helps. Sometimes antibiotics and flax seed oil are necessary. ...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

Probably a stye: Difficult to say for sure, especially without a photo, but it sounds like a stye. It occurs when one of the oil glands in your eyelid gets clogged and infected. You should apply warm heat to the eyes at least twice a day with gentle massaging downwards to help the blockage open and drain. Antibiotic/steroid combo drops help too but you'll need to see a eye doctor for the prescription. ...Read more

Abbreviations.: I hope it is just me, but I have absolutely no idea what all the abbreviations that are given in many questions on Healthtap stand for. In medicine in the US we have been prohibited from using many abbreviations we as doctors have used for years. This is due to potential confusion. Now on this site patients are making up abbreviations for medical terms that often make no sense. Mctd? ...Read more

Right eyelid twitching started last Aug. And persisted for more than a month. Later on dry-eye symptoms such as foreign body sensation, grittiness and ocular pain both eyes. The grittiness got worse when I woke up at night, why? It is so irritating.
