I keep getting a clear sleep out of my eye?

Sleepy Eyes: The "clear sleep" is probably mucus, which is released by the conjunctival goblet cells while you sleep. It tends to be crusty when you wake up. Just splash some warm water on your face when you wake up and wipe gently with a clean cloth. A few drops of artificial tears, such as systane, will help your eyes feel refreshed at this point. ...Read more

My right nostril is stuffed up and I'm coughing my brains out and occasionally am having a thin yellow phlem come out. How do I get rid of my problem?

Determine Cause: This sounds like a sinus issue. Acute or chronic, depending on time of onset and duration. Causes range from bacterial infection (often accompanied by fever, headache and/or ear pain) to seasonal allergies – less likely in the setting of Claritin-D. This would ideally be assessed by examination of your frontal and maxillary sinuses, as well as ears and nose. Cough is likely due to post nasal drip. ...Read more

I got up in the middle of the night and had blurry vision in one eye what is it ? I need help i'm freaking out

Blurry vision: Sometimes after sleep, our vision may be out of focus but it quickly resolves after rubbing our eyes or rinsing them. If that didn't help and it's still blurry and you don't wear contact lenses, you will need to be examined to determine the cause. If it's gone by now, chances are it was something transient and of no major significance. ...Read more

I keep getting these styes in my eyelid; is there a reason why i keep getting these?

Often genetic: Some people have acne rosacea, an inherited skin condition that can cause thicker skin oil. Some people with rosacea have involvement of the eyelids and are prone to get frequent styes. Hot compresses followed by milking of the oil glands helps. Flax seed oil can help. Some people take oral Doxycycline or topical minocycline. See your eye md for guidance of treatment and prevention. ...Read more

Why am i getting a lot of eye boogers..Lol..But really that's embarrassing. Right in the corner of my eyes?

Dry eyes: The eye cleans itself out by tear flow from the outside to the inner corner, carrying debris with it and exiting by a plumbing system into the nose. If there is a lack of tears, then the debris collects on the inside corner. You can lower the level of this by using lubricating eye drops and consider also that you might be in environments with debris in the air getting into the eyes. ...Read more

Blocked year ducts: The tear ducts, which drain tears into the nasopharyngeal, are commonly blocked after delivery,The opening of the duct is in the corner of the eye next to the nose.

I keep getting cysts on my eye lids. I had one squeezed out by an ophthalmologist a few years ago but now it keeps flaring up on the other eye.

Cysts common: If your ophthalmologist was able to remove secretions from your cyst, you most likely had/have sebacious cysts. These are common, not serious, just annoying. They are filled with a "cottage cheese " like substance. They are a dermatologic condition that is most likely genetic. There is no way to prevent them:(. ...Read more

The : The blurring of vision you are describing could be caused by a large list of reasons ranging from benign dry eye to a more serious blood flow issue. It is important to note if you are experiencing any other neurologic symptoms during these episodes such as headache, nausea, numbness/weakness of your arms or legs, dizzyness, ect. These could be signs of a blood flow issue and warrants a prompt workup with your pcp. The fact it clears with Aspirin is unusual and may or may not be related to your condition. Dry eye can also cause blurry vision when you wake up. This usually resolved with blinking or consistant artificial tears. Other corneal issues have also been known to cause blurryness in the am. I'm sorry i can not give you a set answer. You do need a proper eye examination by an ophthalmologist to rule out corneal or retinal problems. If the eye examination is normal, the doctor may want to refer you to a neuro-ophthalmologist for a further evaluation. ...Read more

Do I have astigmatism? I have been seeing flashing lights in my vision (for a year now) and now I am starting to get a blurred vision in my right eye; starting from the outside corner. My school nurse had me flush my eye out this morning but that only hel

Astigmatism : Astigmatism is due to the shape of the eye and is usually present at a young age. This problem sounds more acute to me and i would seek the advise of an ophthamologist at this point. You need a good retinal exam to rule out why the outside corner of the eye is blurred. The fact that you have flashing lights is a retinal symptom and not astigmatism. You may have a retinal tear or detachment and this should be checked asap. It might be vitrerous floaters which is a benign condition, but this is not astigmatism. Ask your gp for the name of a general ophthalmogist and when you call alert the staff to your symptoms. Best of luck. ...Read more

Blurred vision : You need to see an ophthalmologist ASAP, but at the mean time try to blink your eye several time in a cup full of luck warm water over the sink to wash the lotion off your eye & do that several time see if that would help until you see your ophthalmologist. Good luck ...Read more

Working : Working at a computer screen for long hours is very tough on the eyes, for two separate reasons: 1) when you concentrate on computer work, most people blink less than they should. Under normal conditions, the average person blinks once every 5 seconds, but when using a computer, many people blink only every 8-10 seconds. This can cause the eyes to feel dry and become red and irritated. The solution is to rest the eyes throughout the day, if only for a few minutes each hour. Eye drops will not help much. Fish or flaxseed oil pills (omega-3's) help a great deal by making the tears a little thicker. 2) if you are over 40, you might benefit from reading glasses while working at the computer. Oftentimes, the reading glasses sold in the drugstore (no prescription needed) will do the trick. ...Read more
