I'm recently seeing red ring around my eye And I wear contacts for almost two years now never had this problem but now I see it. I'm not sure what it is?

Ciliary flush: The red ring is called a ciliary flush and it is caused by inflammation in the cornea, the clear crystal over the colored part of the eye, or inside the eye. Most likely it is due to your contact lens. Try leaving out the lens and see if the ring goes away. Then check with your eye doctor so he/she can find the problem. ...Read more

Ivee been gettin white mucus plus itching in my eyes for the past two years. Mostly in right eye and im not sick. What could it possible be?

Allergic conjuntivit: An itchy rash in the eyes that lasts 2 years is most likely to be due to allergy - either something in the environment or something you're applying. ...Read more

'Hi, I have been having vision issues/pain for almost 4 years. I'm thinking about suicide. Seen two eye doctors. I can't enjoy life. Suggestions?

Worth treating: Anytime a condition has caused you to consider suicide it is worth seeking help--suicide is a separate issue from vision and pain issues. Talk to someone as soon as you can about those thoughts and seek treatment. If a condition is worth killing yourself about, then it is worth exploring all options to get better. ...Read more

Had a aneurysm coiled two years ago still have small piece unclipped having regular brian scans next scan june. Notice blood in the corner of my eye?

Unrelated: No doubt this is unrelated. Conjuctival hemorrhages don't have anything to do with the physiopathology of aneurysms or their rupture. After two years of treatment, I doubt that you are on blood thinners. Remember to follow-up, no smoking, control blood pressure. If worst headache of life then seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

My dad has got two major eye surgeries in the past 3 years and has also been getting laser everyday week for the past 2 year. Vision is still the same?

My dad has got two major eye surgeries in the past 3 years and has also been getting laser everyday week for the past 2 year. Vision is still the same?

Conditions?: What are the underlying conditions for which your father is being treated? Sometimes keeping the vision the same is a huge win because the patient would have been completely blind without treatment. You need to start by asking your father and his doctors which eye conditions he has and what types of treatment he has received. There are many different lasers used in treating the eyes. ...Read more

I had cataract surgery two years ago. Why is my eye (surrounding skin) still black?

I had cataract surgery two years ago. Why is my eye (surrounding skin) still black?

Likely unrelated: Is it much blacker than your other eye? Often heredity, lack of sleep or allergies of the eye/nasal sinus area can contribute to dark circles. Getting better sleep and addressing whatever allergies that may have, both in the eyes and in the sinuses, may lessen the dark circles. Less commonly, conditions such as eczema, anemia, or liver disease can cause these circles; discuss with your md. ...Read more

When I was 13-years-old, I had two eye cornea transplants. Now that I'm older, are there other treatment options for my eyes?

When I was 13-years-old, I had two eye cornea transplants. Now that I'm older, are there other treatment options for my eyes?

Depends: If the second corneal transplant was successful and is clear, allowing good vision, then nothing need be done. If the graft is rejecting, the eye will lose clarity and become red and irritated. The most likely treatment option at this stage would be the need for topical eyedrops administered by a corneal specialist to treat graft rejection. ...Read more

I got a mole removed by my eye two years. What will happen now that the mole is scar tissue?

I got a mole removed by my eye two years. What will happen now that the mole is scar tissue?

Probably nothing: If the mole was benign, you are left with a hopefully insignificant scar which will not cause any problems. If the scar looks bad, it can be revised by an oculoplastic surgeon or a general plastic surgeon. The mole is not scar tissue as it presumably is gone. ...Read more

On my right eye two of my veins have small black/grey dots on the end of them. I've had painful headaches occurring mostly on my right side for years! And I'm only 16. Also my right side goes through episodes of numbness randomly but I was told it was bec

See doc: If the headache throbs and often associated with nausea, it is most likely migraine which can be controlled with various Rx medications. At times numbness may be a part of migraine. Have you talked to your doctor about this? As for the small veins, they are not likely to be significant unless they are spreading or proliferating. ...Read more

Can floaters be caused by a sinus problem above the eyes or near the nose where eye sockets connect? I've had pain in that corner for two years now.

Can floaters be caused by a sinus problem above the eyes or near the nose where eye sockets connect? I've had pain in that corner for two years now.

Unlikely: Floaters are generally caused by small opacities in the vitreous gel contained within the eye (like a holiday snow toy). They are often a part of aging or can represent early signs of a retinal tear. Sinus problems usually are noted below or above the eye where the frontal and maxillary sinuses are located. Inflammation here can cause aching. ...Read more

Migraine sufferer 20 years. Two in two days. Taste sulfer when I burp/haven't had eggs in months. The headache is in my eye and surrounding it. Touching eyebrow causes severe pain. Worried sick

Migraine pill: Tday there are several medications that reduce/control migraine. There are excellent pills that stop the attack. There is no reason not to take advantage of these preventative and therapeutic products.

Can strong ceiling lights cause cataract to an infant if her eyes were exposed to such strong lights excessively for 2 years? When my daughter was two, her pediatric noticed she had a cataract in the left eye. Further exam at the ophthalmologist confirmed

Can strong ceiling lights cause cataract to an infant if her eyes were exposed to such strong lights excessively for 2 years? When my daughter was two, her pediatric noticed she had a cataract in the left eye. Further exam at the ophthalmologist confirmed

No: Light has been shown to be toxic to the retina in premise. Uv lights can cause cataracts but seen with years of exposure.
Your child probably has a posterior polar cataract. These types of cataract usually don't affect the vision significantly. ...Read more

Do I have scleroderma 46 year old female positive. Ana two times 1:40 and 1:160 negative nucleolar pattern negative subtests. No skin issues, eye irritation once in awhile. Ana tests done 1 1/2 years ago. Rheumatalogist finds nothing except ANA and I

Do I have scleroderma 46 year old female positive. Ana two times 1:40 and 1:160 negative nucleolar pattern negative subtests. No skin issues, eye irritation once in awhile. Ana tests done 1 1/2 years ago. Rheumatalogist finds nothing except ANA and I

Unlikely: The combination of your very low ANA titers and lack of symptoms make scleroderma unlikely. Patterns of ANA are not reproducible, and an ANA titer of <1:80 has been reported in up to 13% of healthy patients.
Ana is a screening assay which should be followed by a more specific autoantibody tests. 95% of scleroderma patients will have an identifiable positive autoantibody. (uptodate. Com, 7/16/12). ...Read more

Nothing to do: The only thing you can do is to wait. In rheumatologic diseases, the components of the syndrome sometimes don't manifest at once but during the curse of several years. Worrying now for something that can be nothing is not good for your mind. Positive ANA test doesn't mean that you have a disease. ...Read more

What to do if my two year old fell and has a cut above his eye.?

Local wound care: Applying a compress to control bleeding, washing with soapy water and applying antibiotic ointment twice daily while keeping the site covered should be all you need to do until healed. If the wound is gaping or continues to bleed, it may require stitches. Vomiting, excessive sleepiness, or lethargy requires an ER visit. See your doctor if redness, swelling or drainage starts. ...Read more

What would cause the outer edges of a two and a half year old's eye whites to become gray?

What would cause the outer edges of a two and a half year old's eye whites to become gray?

Blue sclera: What you are most likely noticing is something called blue sclera, in areas where the tough white connective tissue covering the eye (sclera) is thin enough to show the underlying vascular layer (choroid). This oftentimes can occur alone with no other issues, but it can also be found in certain rare connective tissue diseases. It's probably fine, but I would have a pediatrician take a look at it. ...Read more

I have reddening in the corner of my right eye and its been this way for a week, but this happened to me last year. Why? I have been stressed and last year my reddening lasted two weeks in the same eye.

I have reddening in the corner of my right eye and its been this way for a week, but this happened to me last year. Why? I have been stressed and last year my reddening lasted two weeks in the same eye.

This: This could represent a subconjunctival hemorrhage - a benign condition that is cause by a ruptured blood vessel in the conjunctiva. This typically causes a forein body senstion and not pain. It typically clears in 2-3 weeks.

Redness due to allergies will always come with itch.

Any time you have redness and pain or redness with reduced vison, you should see your eye doctor quickly. ...Read more

My two year old has a stye on her eye and a boil on her butt...where did they come from abd what should I do?

Infection: The infections of your child, s butt and stye may be due to staph infections. Apply hot compresses to both. When the boil on the butt comes to a head, see your doctor so he can lance the boil, take a culture and start you on medication. The stye, likewise, will come to a head and drain. Careful hand washing is the order of the day to prevent further spread of infection ...Read more

From two year having eye irritation problem. Some time have puffy inflation over lower eye lid. Having azythromycin drops. What to do?

Ophthalmologist: Never ever fool with illnesses affecting your eye because loss of vision is a heavy price to pay for lack of appropriate care. Without seeing what this is there is no way to diagnose or suggest treatment, but you should definitely see an ophthalmologist. Do not confuse this with an optomatrist, who is not a doctor of medicine. ...Read more
