Bags under eyes: The eye is normally surrounded by fatty tissue--this serves to cushion and protect the eye within the eye socket. Sometimes a little bit of the fatty tissue can protrude out of the eye socket, becoming visible as a bulge near the eye. An exam by an ophthalmologist would distinguish fat protrusion from something more serious. ...Read more

I got brake fluid in my left eye, I washed it out but it still burns badly. Will it go away or should I get medical help. Do I need to get medical attention for my eye?

I got brake fluid in my left eye, I washed it out but it still burns badly. Will it go away or should I get medical help. Do I need to get medical attention for my eye?

Yes: Yes and urgently. Any chemical that gets in your eye can have a potentially dangerous effect on the eye. Substances that are acidic or basic can cause a chemical burn to the eye which can cause significant long term damage to the eye. The best thing to do when you get something in your eye is wash it out thoroughly for 10-15 minutes and then seek care from your local eye care provider or er. They will be able to check the ph of your eye and make sure that there is no remaining foriegn bodies in or around the eye. ...Read more

I was having redness & a small bulge in my inner lower eye for 3 days. Then it started draining sticky colorless fluid & then a little white fluid.

Stye?: Your description sounds like a stye. I assume you meant inner lower eyelid, rather than eye. A stye (hordeolum) is a plugged oil gland in the eyelid, which can sometimes become infected. Alternatively, it could be an plugged (and possibly infected) tear duct (dacryocystitis). In either case, I recommend seeing an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more
