These symptoms could certainly be a non serious nerve irritation but also may be cardiomyopathy from alcohol or serious heart attack warning signs from meth. So without a complete evaluation, this could be a serious condition. ...Read more

One of my eyes has discharged to redness or itchy. Is this allergies? I have sore throat and congested.

Possibly: Allergic conjunctivitis causes redness, watering and itching. The conjunctiva (inside of your eyelid) can have a cobblestone appearance. Sinus congestion is also common.

Eye glasses make a sore on the bridge of my nose that has been there for years and won't get well. What can I do?

Evaluation needed: Glasses should fit comfortably although some with nose pieces may impress a sort of trench on the site of contact. But the area should not be swollen, crusty or painful. First check with the optician who made the glasses and see if the fit is way off. Then check with your ophthalmologist so the lesion can be diagnosed as that is an area where skin cancer can occur. ...Read more

Touched eye after handling raw chicken. Tear duct is sore almost a week later. No redness. Could this resolve on its own? Anything to watch for?

Touched eye after handling raw chicken. Tear duct is sore almost a week later. No redness. Could this resolve on its own? Anything to watch for?

Yes: The difficult problem is knowing what you mean by sore tear duct. The inner corner of your eyelid has a drainage hole (punctum) that allows tears to drain into your nose via nasolacrimal duct. If you had an infection from the chicken, I'd expect much more yellowish discharge from eyeball. However if you're very tender in the corner with eyelid redness/swelling, get it checked by Eye MD.? antibiotc ...Read more

My lacrimal punctum is hurting. It itches and it feels a bit sore. Underneath the inner corner of my eye I see redness. What could it be? Is it a stye

Itching can be a: Symptom of an allergic response or inflammation. The associated swelling of the delicate tissue could contribute to the discomfort as well. A chalazion (stye) would present itself on the lid margin or eyelid itself. You may want to consider an OTC allergy drop and if not better in 24 hours see your Ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I wear daily contacts most days but wear glasses once in a while. When I wear my glasses though my eyes become red and burn. Why is that?

I wear daily contacts most days but wear glasses once in a while. When I wear my glasses though my eyes become red and burn. Why is that?

Dry Eye Syndrome: If you wear contacts they act as a moist sponge to retain water and keep your eye lubricated. When your contacts are out your eyes are succeptible to the drying effects of the air. Since the tear film is such a critical layer for eye health, I would recommend adding a supplemental lubricating eye drop (such as Systane Balance) two or three times a day. It is safe to use with your contacts too. ...Read more
