How Can I Keep My Eyes Moisturized Without Having Eye Drops
It is difficult: Dry eyes can be caused by various factors, and we have few great methods of improving them. The most simple and successful is the use of artificial tears. Additionally, there are medicated eye drops and devices that can allow the tears we make not to drain away from our eyes. The key is to determine and treat the underlying cause of your dry eyes. See an eye doctor to discuss treatment options.See 1 more doctor answer
Left eye=blurry, glassy, dry, reddish, + mild stinging for three weeks. Wearing contacts makes it worse, but moisturizing eye drops help. What to do?
You definitely need: To see your/an ophthalmologist. I would recommend that you don't wear your contact lenses until you have that exam and are cleared to do so by that doctor.
I have a left eye that waters constantly. It has been recommended that I try moisturizing eye drops. That does not seem to help. I have had a probe?
Two etiologies for: Watery eyes. Surface disease or dry eye. The second is a blocked tear drainage system, yes a probe would help a blockage.
Depends: Moisturizing drops supplement the natural tears and can thicken the tear film which can blur the vision. Some drops have thicker formulations or gel, and can do this more frequently and with greater length of time. So it is normal and usually will go away in a few moments with a number of blinks.
Is it bad if moisturizing eye drops to cause extremely blurred vision for about 20 minutes after I use them?
My left eye has been tearing for about 2 weeks following a week long migraine with eye twitching. The tearing has now started in my right eye. I've tried eye drops, moisturizing and allergy, with out success. Any ideas what could be causing this?
Blocked tear ducts?: If you also have a stuffy nose, the cause can be due to blocked tear ducts. See an opthalmologist if you do not have a stuffy nose.See 1 more doctor answer
Best eye drop: Systane and refresh are both excellent brands but the preferred particular product depends on each individual's needs and preferences.See 1 more doctor answer
No problem: Eye cream is formulated so that it will not sting to much it if gets into the eye but it contains the same type of ingredients as facial moisturizers. So you can substiute the cheaper facial moisturizer for this purpose with no risk to the eyes and generally good effects.
I'm 43. Alot of wrinkles around my eyes especially after I shower. I need to use moisturizer. I lost weight. Can this be the cause and what can I do?
Wrinkle care: Wrinkles can appear due to aging, exposure to the elements etc or become more apparent with weight loss. See your local plastic surgeon and s/he will be able to advise you as to the best way of treating/managing your wrinkles.
Possibly: Dark circles are increased pigmentation often from cycles of swelling, from rubbing or allergies, and from and increased concentration of skin due to looseness of the skin in that area. The ambi product or the fading version may slowly help to reduce pigmentation and even the skin tone, but remember the lid skin is very sensitive and prone to allergic dermatitis, which would worsen the circles
Whenever I use any kind of moisturizer on my face (i avoid eye area) my eyes (specially right eye) irritates. What is this? Is there any kind of remedy?
You may need a: Hypo-allergenic skin cream. You may be allergic to something in yours. Please do not use creams that contain alcohol because that drys the skin. Peace and good health. Your doc can help.
Red, dry, cracking, flakey skin around & on eyes. Itches & burns. Tried moisturizer & eye serum. 3+ months now. What can I do to help it?
See an Allergist: The description is suspicious for allergic contact dermatitis (although hard to be sure without examining the eyes or rash). If the eye is spared, then this is most commonly caused by a preservative, plant extract, or fragrance used in cosmetics or hygiene product, or via transfer of allergen from hands when rubbing the eye (sensitivity to nail treatment for example). Patch testing can help
Moisturizer in my eyes when using it on my face. Eyes are blood shot, blurry, puffy feeling. Need to see eye doc? I have pic but it won't let me link.
Flush eyes: Flush your eyes with sterile room temperature water. If the symptoms don't seem better by the next day see a physician.
Whenever I put moisturizer on my face (i avoid eye area) my eye irritates. I don't want to leave my favorite moisturizer. Now what to do? Suggest pls.
Try a new bottle: Try a new bottle- this one may have something foreign in it. If that doesn't work, you may have developed a sensitivity and need to switch.
Dermatologists: are serums a good hydrating moisturizer, or are creams better? Looking for an intense moisturizer for eye area.
Creams.: Creams are always more hydrating than lotions which are more hydrating typically than serums. A great intensive over-the-counter moisturizer is cerave cream. For a good eye repair product which is intensely moisturizing, try skinmedica eye repair.
Not really: These drops are vaso-constrictors that constrict the blood vessels on the surface of the eye. They should only be used for a short time. Long term usage can cause rebound vaso-congestion which results in worsening redness in the eyes when the drop is not used. Using it more than a few times a day for a few weeks is likely too long. Artifical tears are better for a lubricant.
I only use cleanser and sunblock. Sometimes I wear makeup but not the other skincare like eye cream and moisturizer. Will that accelerate aging?
Exfoliants: Both of those will help preserve skin quality. You will also benefit from exfoliating your skin and keeping it moist.See 1 more doctor answer
