I looked into the sun for too long, now my eyes hurt?

I looked into the sun for too long, now my eyes hurt?

Solar retinopathy: Solar retiinopathy is damage to the eye's retina, specifically to the center of retina called the macula, from long exposure to sun rays or other bright light. It usually occurs due to staring at the sun, watching a solar eclipse or viewing a very bright light for long time. The damage is due to photochemical injury rather than thermal. Please see a retina specialist. It may or may not get better. ...Read more

I just literally went blind for a minute, now my eyes hurt and burn. What does this sound like?

I just literally went blind for a minute, now my eyes hurt and burn. What does this sound like?

Hard to say.: "literally went blind for a minute" implies total vision loss in both eyes for about 60 secs. That, in itself, is very rare and is difficult to relate to eyes that burn/hurt. The latter is very common with dryness of the eyes - but vision at most would be blurry not at all blind. Major temporary vision loss is usually circulatory. Cause varies from migraine to serious blockage. Pain is rare. ...Read more

I had lasik 2 months ago and just looked at the solar eclipse. Now my eyes hurt, what should I do?

I got drunk last night blacked out now my eyes hurt, if I had bashed them or slept on them on the ground would my eye lids be bruised?

I got drunk last night blacked out now my eyes hurt, if I had bashed them or slept on them on the ground would my eye lids be bruised?

Brain vs. Eyelids: Whether your eye lids are bruised or not is a minor issue. Getting drunk at your age is bruising your brain. If you continue drinking, you are headed for trouble and I would urge you to quit drinking while you are ahead!
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

What to do if my eyes hurt I need help now?

Depends: Is the pain from the eye or from the eyelids? Does it hurt to move the eye? Is the vision disturbed? Have you had an attack like this in the past? You would do well to see an eye doctor --- but in a hurry if the vision is down or the eye is very red. ...Read more

My eyes hurts because I left my contacts in for too long. Should I wear glasses today?

My eyes hurts because I left my contacts in for too long. Should I wear glasses today?

Yes: Leaving your contacts in too long is very dangerous. It can result in infections that can cause permanent loss of vision and the first sign is eye pain. If you are a contact lenses wearer and your eyes hurt, the first thing to do is remove your contacts. And, as a side note, never sleep in your contacts. ...Read more

I have had a headake for 3 days now n I jus checked my BP n its 143/101. My eyes hurt so bad I hope this will b OK. I don't have insurance so no doc.

I have had a headake for 3 days now n I jus checked my BP n its 143/101. My eyes hurt so bad I hope this will b OK. I don't have insurance so no doc.

High BP: Your BP is causing your headache. Number is very high. But I believe your anxiety of not having doctor and insurance is driving your BP high. SO Take deep breath. Try to calm yourself down by taking Deep breaths in and out. And take BP again. Take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for Headache, Avoid salt from now on for a few days. Keep BP log. If > 150/90 do go to county or community clinic for BP med.
Start exercise. ...Read more

My eyes hurt and loose focus when exposed to reading, bright light and sun light. I wear glasses and my vision is getting worse.?

My eyes hurt and loose focus when exposed to reading, bright light and sun light. I wear glasses and my vision is getting worse.?

General health?: Sometimes vision changes can be caused by high or low blood sugar - it is important to be tested for diabetes. Also, sometimes thyroid disease can cause eye changes. Try to avoid too much caffeine and concentrated sugars and see if that helps. Also, it is common in the 40's for the lenses of the eyes to lose the ability to change focus, so I would recommend another eye exam. ...Read more

Floaters for years and every now and then my eyes hurt to touch as it feels like there's pressure in my eyes and then I feel terrible like weak?

Check it out: Floaters do not cause a pressure sensation. If you feel pressure in your eyes you should see an ophthalmologist who can measure the pressure to make sure it is not elevated. This should be done to check for glaucoma. ...Read more

3 yr old toddler complaining both her eyes hurt all the time for about 2 weeks now. At first I thought it was just a thirst headache. Seeing dr 2morro?

Right steps: Seeing a doctor is a good first step - and a pediatric ophthalmologist might also be in this sequence. Analysis would include things such as does the child see well, are the eyes red, is there discharge or signs of infection, is there associated systemic illness of some sort? And is the condition getting better or worse? Good luck with your child's examination. ...Read more

Tbree days ago eyes hurt. Last nite got migraine. Imitrx helped. Now back of head and neck feels like it burning hot. What is it? Body is freezing

Aura assoc. Symptoms: The symptoms you describe are most likely aura associated. Migraine symptoms are so unique to each individual they are like snowflakes. The burning in back of head could be related to increased pressure on the greater occipital nerve. I have found surgical decompression to be very effective in patients with chronic migraines. Nerves when inflamed can feel like they are "burning.". ...Read more

I got sore throat starting 1wk ago. Now I feel better but have tan / pinkish sputum. Tongue also hurts when I extend forward. Eyes hurt a bit. Thoughts?

I got sore throat starting 1wk ago. Now I feel better but have tan / pinkish sputum. Tongue also hurts when I extend forward. Eyes hurt a bit. Thoughts?

Sore throat symptoms: I can't say precisely why you are having these symptoms, but one possibility is that you had significant tonsillar inflammation with your sore throat, and sometimes, when the tonsils and the superficial blood vessels swell with inflamation the smallest vessels can break and leak a small amount of light-brown and/or blood tinged sputum. I would not worry about. Wait at least another week. ...Read more

4yr old that has stomach pain bad enough to cry. Then vomited a good bit 1x. Now Whining and moaning that his eyes hurt so bad.? migraines? No fever

4yr old that has stomach pain bad enough to cry. Then vomited a good bit 1x. Now Whining and moaning that his eyes hurt so bad.? migraines? No fever

Yes: Small children can certainly have migraines but to distinguish them from other types of similar headache can be challenging.

The main question is to rule out other medical conditions which require different treatment, like sinusitis etc.

Have a cold for month. Tooth broke off the other day when eating bread. Now today mouth feels numb when brushing teeth. Ears nose plug and eyes hurt?

Separate problems: Your tooth breaking and your cold are two separate problems, but they both require treatment. I suspect that you have a sinus infection that may need antibiotics to treat. You also need to get to your dentist ASAP to determine if your broken tooth is abscessed and what needs to be done to fix it. Please don't wait as both problems will get worse if you do. ...Read more

Why do my eyes hurt in the sunlight?

Why do my eyes hurt in the sunlight?

The sun is strong: Sunlight is modified by a number of reflexes to minimize damage to the eyes. If you have a sudden, and new sensitivity to sunlight, then there could be inflammation of the surface of the eye or inside. If this is true, then see your ophthalmologist to determine if your eyes are fine. ...Read more
