My 1 year old daughter eye keep running and i was know what can be making her eye run...Is there anything serious I should be looking for?

My 1 year old daughter eye keep running and i was know what can be making her eye run...Is there anything serious I should be looking for?

Two main thoughts: If her eyes have been running all her life, like since day 1, then she likely has blocked tear ducts. If they just started running recently, more likely allergies.If plugged tear ducts, massage corners of eyes by bridge of nose several times a day to try and open them up, but if not improving, may need the ducts probed by a pediatric ophthalmologist. If recent, talk to doc about allergy tx options. ...Read more

Difficult to predict: There could be an inflammatory condition, glaucoma, vitamin deficiency, etc. But could also merely involve transient chemical/metabolic imbalance, medication reaction, etc. Definitely get imaging asap, and see an ophthalmologist soon. ...Read more

Occasionally, when a floater develops, it tears a small blood vessel in the back of the eye, causing the blood floater. It often disappears within a few weeks. However, it could be a sign of a more serious retinal problem and should be examined immediately. ...Read more

Not very concerned.: If you have been evaluated for migraines with transient visual loss and this seems to be your stable headache pattern, I am afraid your boyfriend is wrong.

Blepharospasm: You have blepharospasm. It is NOT a sign of a stroke. It's a common annoyance that comes and goes. Fatigue and sunlight may make it worse - use sunglasses. If it persists, there are other treatments that your eye doctor can use. Generally though, it will subside gradually on its own (and return)(and subside). ...Read more

Not sure why it is coming. Please suggest what to do?

Conjunctivitis: It sounds like conjunctivitis, which usually is viral in nature. Sometimes bacterial. Many times it is treated with optical, topical liquid medications and antibiotics (...for example: "pink eye"). The blood could be a broken vessel that commonly occurs with minor trauma and an anticoagulant (such as aspirin or NSAID). Most resolve in 7-10 days. The worse is the first 3 days. If pain, see MD. ...Read more

My daughter just had a baby 10 days ago and she is complaining about not being able to see well. What could be causing this.

Meds, BP??: The first two things that come to mind are side effects from medication that she may be on for pain or changes in her blood pressure (both too high or too low) could cause vision problems. There are a few rarer things such as tiny ocular blood clots that could also cause similar symptoms. Discuss meds with doc and have BP checked and go from there.
