I have been experience regular eye inflammations. Symptoms start with red eye, until very foggy vision. I have atopic dermatitis I was told that I have blefarithis as well. Do you think is related? What can do to avoid this constant inflammations? Thank

Atopic dermatitis: Often the eyelids are most affected by the dry skin and itching of atopic dermatitis. Frequent rubbing only makes it worse and introduces bacteria. Sometimes atopic dermatitis is associated with keratoconus in which the cornea becomes cone shaped and may be exposed and susceptible. A good rule of thumb: do not touch your itchy eyelids unless applying moisturizer and this should be done ALOT. ...Read more

I woke up with an extremely red eye. Half of the white of my eye is solid red. It is not sore and vision is fine. Should I seek medical attention?

I woke up with an extremely red eye. Half of the white of my eye is solid red. It is not sore and vision is fine. Should I seek medical attention?

Yes.: Chances are it's probably a harmless subconjunctival hemorrhage (bruise in the eye) - maybe from rubbing your eye too much during the night or cough or sneezing. And especially without pain or blurry vision, it's even less concerning. However, you only have two eyes... If you're uncertain, get it checked out. ...Read more

Stubborn father has a red eye, half the eye is red from eyeball to corner of eye towards the nose. Refuses doc, no vision issues. Going on 5 days?

Stubborn father has a red eye, half the eye is red from eyeball to corner of eye towards the nose. Refuses doc, no vision issues. Going on 5 days?

He's probably right: If bright red (like blood), and no pain or other symptoms, it's probably a subconjunctival hemorrhage, i.e. a small broken blood vessel. It can happen from normal eye rubbing. It probably will clear up very soon, and quite suddenly. He'll probably wake up in the next couple of days with an entirely normal looking eye. In that case and if it doesn't happen repeatedly, he (and you) can rest easy. ...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

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
