Allergies or pollution: If your tear production is adequate, and you're having these symptoms, it sounds like a reaction to inflammation occurring on the surface of the eye.

In Southeast Asia, people often put rose water drops in their eyes. is it safe? Are there any benefits of using rose water in the eyes?

It Depends: I would be concerned about applying rose water to the eyes. In particular I would be concerned about how it was prepared and if any of the preservatives would interact with your eyes. The eye's don't need any sort of supplement. Your natural tears are the best form of hydration for the eyes.

Should be OK: If you irrigated the eye after getting the vinegar cider in it, the eye should be OK. It may be irritated and injected from the vinegar and even the irrigation itself. Usually these symptoms will resolve. If any symptoms persist, or if there is pain or loss of vision, seek medical attention promptly. This could include care by an ophthalmologist, an ER, or an urgent care center. ...Read more
