My eyes have been very bloodshot for about a week now. I slept in my contacts but now I'm wearing them properly. Why are my eyes still bloodshot?

My eyes have been very bloodshot for about a week now. I slept in my contacts but now I'm wearing them properly. Why are my eyes still bloodshot?

Take a break: From contact lenses until your eyes are back to normal. They are bloodshot probably because of over wear. Going back to wearing them is not helping. Take a break from the lenses for a few days and just wear your glasses. If you are having pain or decreased vision get an exam immeditaley as you could have an infection. Good luck. ...Read more

Eye red with pain.: What you have now may not be related to what you had before. Both eyes red, now one eye red with pain. Would suggest you see an ophthalmologist to exclude a foreign body under the eyelid or a corneal foreign body, abrasion or ulcer to start with. ...Read more

3 months ago I stopped using clear eyes. Now, after 3 months my eyes are turning really bloodshot. Could this be rebound hyperemia?

My eyes are really bloodshot and I think I have rebound redness. I was using visine allergy drops to get rid of the red in my eye now I'm redder. Help?

My eyes are really bloodshot and I think I have rebound redness. I was using visine allergy drops to get rid of the red in my eye now I'm redder. Help?

Just wait : This will go away, but DO NOT use the Visine drops to make it go away faster — that will only perpetuate the problem. If the redness is severe and you don't want to wait for it to resolve, your doctor or your ophthalmologist can prescribe a short course of steroid drops to help. See an allergist to help find better ways of controlling your eye symptoms than using the decongestant drops. ...Read more

Pressure in head and behind eyes, temple tightness, since almost 2 years now, bloodshot eyes, fatigue, nervous, what can it be and can do? Pls advise!

Complicated problem: There are many possibilities here. If you have not had an eye exam recently, it may be that you need glasses even if you feel you are seeing well. If you are spending more than 6 hours/day in front of computer, or if you are not getting enough breaks or rest/sleep, or if you have some allergies, or if you are not maintaining good hygiene around your eyes--all of these might be impacting you. ...Read more

Antihistamines may: Help you sleep better, but they may not help much with coughing, fatigue, or bloodshot eyes. They can dry the eyes out further, as well as dry out all secretions. Coughing is not an allergic reaction unless you are having difficulty breathing, and you are having swollen mucus membranes. Call your doctor back and get clarification on what to do now and next. It's time! ...Read more

My son has a bloodshot eye and he's had it since yesterday. I've jus noticed its bloodshot in the other eye aswell now so I don't no what this is?

Possible infection: Conjunctivitis or "pink eye" very commonly starts in one eye and then goes to the other. Sometimes "bloodshot eyes" can be a subconjunctival hemorrhage or "popped blood vessel" but this is rare to be in both eyes at once. If he starts to develop a discharge or other symptoms, he should be seen by an ophthalmologist to see if antibiotic drops are required. ...Read more

Just been to A&E as eye suddenly very bloodshot, they checked my INR which was 3.2 10 days ago and it's now 2.1.  They are not sure what is going on.

Get checked : If it involves one eye, and is not causing any pain or visual problems, it could be a subconjunctival bleed, which can occur due to a broken blood vessel on the eye surface, frequently occurring after forceful coughing or sneezing, heavy lifting or vomiting, and is more common in people on blood thinners, as you are. It's painless and usually harmless, and should resolve eventually. ...Read more

I woke up with a crusted left eye and now it is all bloodshot. Almost looks like I'm high to be honest except i have never done drugs or drank alcohol?

It may be infection: Your left eye is likely infected and would require an antibiotic treatment. Eye drops or an antibiotic cream is what you need. This means going to see a doctor for a prescription, unless you are lucky to find an antibiotic(Eye drops) over the counter. There is one called "triple antibiotic" which works well. Wash your hands after you touch the left eye. ...Read more
