Bloodshot eyes, clear discharge, fuzzy vision. No pain. Not allergic conjunctivitis or dry-eye. Prednisolone helped, but symptoms returned. Ideas?
See eye doctor: But I suspect that you may have dry eyes which may respond to regular use (3-4x/day) of artificial tear preferably in single-dose form. One of the major symptoms of dry eyes is tearing because the body is trying to overcome the dryness by periodically producing tear. I would not advise using prednisone for this condition. ...Read more
My eyes both are looking "bloodshot" and hurting and getting some gunk in them do you think it's pink eye and do I need to go to the doctor?

This will be a slow but less irritating process. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
During & after: During "pink eye" people generally have red "bloodshot" eyes, and this can persist for a little while once you've treated the pink eye, but it should gradually resolve. If it isn't then you'd need to consider alternative causes of red eye (ex allergies, corneal abrasion, subconjuctival hemorrhage, blepharitis, dry eyes, others), and this may necessitate a trip to the eye doctor. ...Read more
The inner corner of my right eye has been really red and bloodshot all day but isn't itchy. Could I have pink eye?
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the thin mucous membrane that lines the front surface of the eyeball and the inside of the eyelids. As the inflammation increases, it causes the tiny blood vessels in the conjunctiva to dilate, thus leading to a redness of the eye.
