Been 2 two different eye docs. Both says allergies but red lines on eyes since July. Eye pain behind eyelid comes and goes. Now seeing eyelashes. Why?

Been 2 two different eye docs. Both says allergies but red lines on eyes since July. Eye pain behind eyelid comes and goes. Now seeing eyelashes. Why?

Blepharitis?: Inflammation of inner lining of eyelids can cause irritation of the eyeball, leading to redness. It can also cause the eyelashes to be redirected toward the eye so that they enter the field of vision. Your symptoms are suggestive of blepharitis. You should ask about this. Make sure you see an ophthalmologist (someone who treats eye disease), not just an optometrist (who just prescribes lenses). ...Read more

7 mnth old has had dark purplish/ blueish bags under her eyes since about 2 months old. Allergies & what kind? What else could it be? Need to see doc?

7 mnth old has had dark purplish/ blueish bags under her eyes since about 2 months old. Allergies & what kind? What else could it be? Need to see doc?

Maybe not allergies: A 2 month old baby with "dark purplish-blueish bags" under the eyes is very young, so maybe doesn't have allergies as the cause. Because the baby will have seen the doctor for regular check-ups at ages 1m, 2m, 4m, and 6m, plus will see the doctor again at 9m, there are many opportunities for the parents to get the doctor's opinion. Also, the trait of darker lower lids' skin runs in some families. ...Read more

What would cause eyes to water mostly with the outside corners of eyes? This has been a problem for quite some time. Per doc its not allergies.

What would cause eyes to water mostly with the outside corners of eyes? This has been a problem for quite some time. Per doc its not allergies.

Dry eyes: If you have already seen an eye md who says that you do not have allergies, then assuming there is nothing else obviously wrong with the eye, dryness is the highest likelihood. Dryness on the eye is perceived as something that needs to be washed out so the eye tears in response. You can try otc artificial tears 4x/day as a test to see if symptoms improve. ...Read more

6yr old. Sleeps a lot. Ex: All night n noon till 10pm. Up 3hrs, than sleeps n sleeps n school till noon? Bags on eyes, eats less. Doc said allergies??

Serious Fatigue: School age children are normally quite active. For a young child to be sleeping most of the day and having fatigue, I would be concerned about a more serious underlying condition, including diabetes or anemia. While allergies can make one feel tired, a child should not be excessively fatigued or lethargic from them without significant other symptoms. ...Read more

My doc says cos I'm allergic to ondansetron that I'm also allergic to antihistamines, what can I use for gritty itchy eyes due to spring allergies?

My doc says cos I'm allergic to ondansetron that I'm also allergic to antihistamines, what can I use for gritty itchy eyes due to spring allergies?

Huh?: Ondansetron allergy is very uncommon. I am no allergist, but there is no apparent overlap between the antihistamine H1 and H2 receptor and the antiemetic HT3 receptor that I am aware of. In addition, antihistamines have been used as part of the treatment of ondansteron allergy. I suggest you clear this up with your doc. ...Read more

Upper right eyelid twitch? I can see eyelashes move side 2 side. Seem like eyeball moving too. Eye doc in Oct. Said allergies. But twitch started n decemb

Unlikely: Allergic eyelids don't twitch but do itch. What you have may just be a tic which is often worsened by stress. If the problem persists or gets worse, consult a neurologist. They will often go away after weeks or months- but no always. ...Read more

Doc says I have allergy and dry eye. Constant blurry vision and ghosting. Vision does not improve with drops. With glasses still 20/20. What's wrong?

See eye doctor: Allergic eyes only affect vision occasionally but dry eyes often do. Perhaps your vision is blurred because you need something more than just artificial tear but then I don't understand how you could have 20/20 vision if the vision were indeed blurred until this degree of visual acuity is only present intermittently. Please clarify. ...Read more

I have a swollen, painful eye lid that started about three days ago. It started to feel like a bruise on the lower eyelid but after two days it became puffy. I do wear contacts but take em out at night. I don't have any allergies that I know of but I was

Stye: It sounds like an acute blocked oil gland of the eyelid, or stye. Discontinue contact lens wear and begin a hot compress routine to help bring the backed up secretions to a head. A gentle massage of the area after a 10' hot compress helps. Repeat 2 to 4 times daily. Cleansing the lashes and eyelids with diluted baby shampoo removes bacteria which aides recovery. After a few days, if no help c md. ...Read more

How can MRI on brain miss a brain tumor when two eye docs, 2 neruo, and 2neruosurgeon all say can't see tumor but there could be one starting and now have one avm in oct last year and one this June.

How can MRI on brain miss a brain tumor when two eye docs, 2 neruo, and 2neruosurgeon all say can't see tumor but there could be one starting and now have one avm in oct last year and one this June.

MRI scans: To see a tumor or AVM with MRI depends on many factors, including the size, shape, location, enhancement and secondary signs such as edema and changes in normal anatomy. A very small tumor in the right location can be easily seen, but even larger tumors cannot be seen until they change the anatomy of the rest of the brain or enhance. And very small tumors at times are not seen. Same for AVM. ...Read more

High BP: Your BP is causing your headache. Number is very high. But I believe your anxiety of not having doctor and insurance is driving your BP high. SO Take deep breath. Try to calm yourself down by taking Deep breaths in and out. And take BP again. Take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for Headache, Avoid salt from now on for a few days. Keep BP log. If > 150/90 do go to county or community clinic for BP med.
Start exercise. ...Read more

Doctor my right side eye vesion number is 5 or lelf side vesion number is 4.9. Now doc my age is 20 but my. Vesion of eyes on soo weak?

If we're talking: About diopters, and the difference is only 0.1 diopter, it's actually not noticeably that different. So, would discuss the eye being weak with your eye doctor, as something else may be cooking that needs to be investigated, once they do a dilated fundoscopic exam with refraction. Good luck! ...Read more

Swollen eyelids occasionally, was told its contacts & allergies. Swelling usually goes away in 1 day, but both eyes for 3 days now. What can I do?

My 3 yr old had a swollen face 3 days ago and the doc said may have been a allergy to other pain meds. Allergy meds worked for only 3 days now swellin?

Mgt: Facial swelling may be related to a number of conditions. Among these are an allergic reaction, infection, Kawasaki's disease and a renal disorder.
Your PCP should re evaluate her for a possible reaction or another disorder. If she has any respiratory difficulty, I would suggest an ED visit. For now, continue the allergy medications and avoid any possible triggers of an allergic reaction. ...Read more

Restylane (dermal fillers): dna renSounds like the restylane (dermal fillers) is visible through the skin. Sometimes injection of hyaluronidase (which is an enzyme that removes hyaluronidate) can help.
