Severe cases might need treatment of an antibiotic or anti-inflammatory. ...Read more

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.

Does early morning sneezing, running nose and itchy eyes with season change is sign of hay fever? I'm having this problem since childhood.

Air born allergy: The label "hay fever" has been applied by some to any air born allergy or specifically to the irritants that are in the air when harvest time brings the cutting of hay. Either way, seasonal changes bring new things into the air. Most who are sensitive will also be allergic to the dust mites that permeate your pillow & mattress.

What might cause early morning eye problems?

Eye drops: The most common early morning eye problem is due to overnight dryness. I am assuming that your vision clears quickly and you are comfortable most of the day and evening. If so, you can put a gel drop like theragel into your eyes at bedtime and this will coat and protect the eye and help in the morning. If the vision is bad or there is redness/pain, see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

In the morning I wake up and one eye feels like there is grit in it. It drives me crazy! It hurts and it's just one eye. What is it?

Dry Eye, Blepharitis: There are many causes of this, but if the eye feels like something is in it, the symptoms are from the cornea, or clear part of the eye. One eye can come open some at night and become dry, leading to irritation upon awakening. Blepharitis is a low grade bacterial colonization of the lid that can irritate overnight. Recurrent corneal erosion syndrome is also possible. An exam can give a diagnosis. ...Read more
