What could it mean if I have one red eye and one white eye in a photo?

Leukocoria: We've all seen people with red eyes in photos (a normal light reflex off the retina, the back of the eye), but when one eye is white (leukocoria), while it may be nothing, it may be the sign of a serious eye problem, like a retinal detachment, or a tumor in the eye. Please keep in mind that these bad things are very rare, but in any case you should visit your eye doctor for a dilated eye exam now ...Read more

Eye exam: The difference could be just in the light reflection from positioning of the camera. But it could also be something more serious like a cataract present in one eye. The difference between the two eyes certainly warrants a thorough eye exam by an ophthalmologist, even if you don't notice anything unusual with your vision. ...Read more

I have one eye that is red the other is not. The red eye feels dry and does not itch, hurt nor is it oozing pus or have crust. What do I have?

Could be dry: It's less likely allergy or infection due to lack of symptom except the redness and dryness. You may have dry eye on that side. Just be careful with hand and eye hygiene if in case is a viral conjuctivitis that way you will not spread to other eye or others. Use artificial tears, heat pack and baby shampoo wash the lashes. If after couple of days it does not go away then see an eye doc. ...Read more

One eye has red eye in photos, but the other eye never does. Could this be an indication of a medical problem?

One eye has red eye in photos, but the other eye never does. Could this be an indication of a medical problem?

Yes: The red eye side is probably normal. The other side may have something blocking the view, or is turned in or out side, or have a major vision problem. I assume this is a child. This requires evaluation very soon by a pediatric ophthalmologist (or a regular ophthalmologist if an adult). Don't delay. ...Read more

Needs exam: If this is a new problem, this person needs an exam. There are multiple possibilities from misalignment of the eyes to cataract to a tumor inside of the eye. If this is a child, they should have an exam urgently (within days). If an adult, the urgency of the exam would depend on other symptoms and whether or not they knew there was a problem already. ...Read more

In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only

In regards to retinal detachment, symptoms are red eye, blurry vision, black spots and lights, pain at times, noticeable dimness all in one eye only

Guarded Prognosis: Pain and red eye usually aren't associated with retinal detachment unless it is chronic or unless the eye has inflammation and the detachment is caused by a fluid build-up instead of a hole. Given your history there are other things that can dim vision, such as a blocked vessel. You should be carefully evaluated by a retina specialist to optimize your chances of recovery. Good luck. ...Read more
