Just noticed my left eye is really red. No pain, no itching, no pus, no vision loss. Just red. On computer for 4 hours straight. Is that the cause?

Just noticed my left eye is really red. No pain, no itching, no pus, no vision loss. Just red. On computer for 4 hours straight. Is that the cause?

Bleed: Sounds like a sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. As long as the vision is unchanged and there is no pain, everything should be fine. If it is a little irritated, then you can use an artificial tear up to 4 times a day to lubricate. This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up! ...Read more

Bloodshot eyes, clear discharge, fuzzy vision. No pain. Not allergic conjunctivitis or dry-eye. Prednisolone helped, but symptoms returned. Ideas?

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

Left eyelids swollen. No pain in eye w. Movement. Eyelids/around eye achy. Get slightly better wiht warm compress- but vision is just slightly blurry x 2 days. No eye appt till next week; what is this?

Many reasons: It is difficult to determine the exact cause without examining the eye. Possible causes are inflammation related to irritation or allergy. You may have a developing hordeolum (stye) or chalazion. Simple eyelid swelling should not cause blurry vision unless it is obstructing the vision. Seek care to determine the cause of the blurry vision as soon as possible. ...Read more
