My eyes are red and under my eyes and down to my cheekbone is also red.dry itchy and tender to the touch. Are there any home remedies for this.

Allergy/blepharitis

Head-eye
This could be blepharitis (lid inflammation), infection, eczema or allergy. Treat blepharitis with warm compresses to eyelids x 10 min 2x/d & baby shampoo eyelid scrubs. If allergy, stop any new eye creams, cleansers, make up, drops & take oral antihistamine (claratin/Benadryl). See your eye doctor to rule out infection. They may prescribe antibiotics or steroid cream depending on diagnosis.

What is good for chronic dry eyes? What causes it? Thank you, Rebecca

Treatments for dry e

Dry_eyes
Dry eyes are common and have a number of causes. As we get older, our eyes make less tears. Tears are a complex mixture that includes mucous, water, minerals and a lipid. All the components are important to keep the tear film stable and prevent rapid evaporation. There are a number of treatments that include various types of artificial tears and other treatments. See an eye doctor.

I have chronic dry eyes,i have tried many eye drops, including restasis - nothing has helped?

Complex treatment

Eyes
see a dry eye specialist if not improving with tears or restasis, also may consider punctal plugs in noninflammatory cases. treat underlying cause (ie autoimmune disease), check for tear production issues, check for lid position issues (evaporative), check for meibomian gland disease or things that destabilizes tear film, systemic meds, previous corneal surgery/CTL wear, may need tarsorrhaphy...

Dr. Andrea Kossler answered:

Chronic dry eyes - would this condition disqualify me from undergoing LASIK to correct nearsightedness?

Depends

Eye
Depends on how severe your dry eye is. If it is mild-moderate, often the surgeon will optimize your dry eye prior to the procedure. If it is severe you may not be a good candidate as severe dry eye can be exacerbated by LASIK. See a good LASIK specialist for evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate.

Could you tell me what's the cause of dry eyes and chronic pain in eyes but no tears when I want to cry?

Many things

Persistent_pain
a number of conditions can cause dry eyes many of which are considered "autoimmune diseases". This may include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. Sjögren's syndrome is a condition causing dry eyes, reduction in saliva,etc. and is found often with the conditions mentioned above. One easy way to treat the dry eyes is with artifical tears (over the counter). Check with your physician

Dr. Keshav Narain answered:

What is a really effective treatment for chronic blepharitis that are causing mild eye irritation due to the white debris that cause dry eyes?

Hot compresses &

Baby Shampoo. Blepharitis is very common and affects the eyelashes at their bases and the glands that secrete lipid at the lid margins (meibomian glands). A variety of treatments are available but by far the most common and most effective is use of hot compresses and baby shampoo nightly. By softening the meibomian secretions, tear stability also improves. Some pts tend to get more

Should I be concerned if my mother has chronic dry eyes and some nights her eyes hurt/purn does anyone know what she can do for this besides drops?

Dry eyes!

Stringio
Start with Artificial tears routinely (one drop 4 times a day every day), oral omega-3's, and warm compresses. Next, medicated drops (Restasis, mild steroid drops, NSAID drops) or punctal occlusion may be helpful. A humidifier in the home may be helpful. Omega 3's work most for my patients. Systane night time gel also.
