How to treat burning eyes caused by the fumes from bleach?

Lubricating drops: The eyes are very sensiive to bleach fumes and will water excessively when exposed which gets rid of most of the bleach. If you vision is clear, the eyes are not particularly red and there is no pain, you can just use over the counter lubricating eye drops to help flush out the rest. If there is any problem, see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Can a cold cause blurry vision and kind burning eyes? Eye doctor says my eyes are healthy that i just have blepharitis wich i treat with warm compress

Can a cold cause blurry vision and kind burning eyes? Eye doctor says my eyes are healthy that i just have blepharitis wich i treat with warm compress

If viral cold, yes: Sometimes with the viral shedding in the tear film, there can be minor irritation or blurriness that goes away as soon as the cold does. If not, call your eye doctor so they can assess under a slit lamp examination. Meanwhile, if your eyes are feeling 'hot', cool compresses may be better than warm until the cold goes away. If eyes are feeling cool, or cold, the warm compresses would be comforting. ...Read more

I've been prone to sneezing burning eyes ,no redness and runny nose since 3 months non stop. Never had a history of allergies.What could be the cause?

See allergist: Unless you have been tested, you cannot rule out allergies. Yet burning eyes is not typical for allergic conjunctivitis and more suggestive of dry eyes or an irritant reaction to eye cosmetics (Mascara) and even infection. Vasomotor rhinitis is yet another possibility. Suggest that you consult an allergist. ...Read more
