Rubbing Alcohol In Eye
In glaucoma is there any harm in rubbing your eyes, such as applying pressure to remove eye makeup?
Not a good idea!: Will not help a mid ear infection-need an oral antibiotic. May cause significant burning in an ear canal (outer ear) infection. Severe burning if you have hole in eardrum with infection. Only ok, mixed with white vinegar, for ear canal drying/cleaning, if no canal inflammation & no eardrum perforation. See an otology/ent md for treatment. ...Read more
Generally not: the plastic lenses of eyeglasses from reputable dealers will not be damaged by rubbing alcohol although some frames might be susceptible. Lenses from ordinary retail sources might be made of cheaper plastic and be damaged. However it is always best to clean the lenses with a microfiber cloth and use dish soap if the soil is heavy. ...Read more
No: The worst thing that can happen is some temporary irritation. ...Read more
Yes: Most types of contact lenses are not meant to be worn at night. Determine if yours are the type that can (extended wear). Even still your eye membranes are supposed to have time to breath and your eyes should be open. Most people don't sleep this way and even if they did you would need to keep blinking which you don't control during sleep. Dry eyes can damage the delicate membranes. ...Read more
Alteration position: Rubbing the eyes may shift the position of pre-existing floaters a bit although they will reposition themselves in between. Unless the rubbing is so vigorous that you induce further floaters, this will not change the basic pattern you are experiencing. If you see many new floaters, or flashing lights or the vision changes, see your ophthalmologist without delay. ...Read more
My colleague uses a lot of hand sanitizer to clean her tables. Can the alcohol evaporated from the sanitizer damage the eyes and respiratory system?
Unlikely an issue: Direct contact of the sanitizer with the delicate surface of the eye would be harmful. However, the dissipation of the alcohol vapor as it evaporates from the cleaned surfaces has such a low concentration that harm to the eyes or lungs would be unlikely. Using such products in open spaces is less worrisome than those that are confined and poorly ventilated . ...Read more

Visible clear film in outer corner of one eye that can be felt & accompanied by excess amount of green "eyeboogers". Do not wear contacts?
Typical of bacterial: infection in the lacrimal fluid (over surface of sclera & cornea) which is secreted (obtained from blood plasma) by the lacrimal gland over each eye. With irritation, more white blood cells are also secreted into this fluid. When white blood cells eat/ingest bacteria they also produce green enzymes as part of attacking/digesting the ingested bacteria, thus the green color. Deal with the infection. ...Read more
Can wearing eye shadow and eye makeup cause changes in the colour of the eyelid? Can makeup cause vitiligo? Is wearing makeup daily bad for skin?
Not that i know of: As far I know, the answer to all those question is no. Wearing makeup can definitely cause irritation, cogged pores etc. but if you are not having a problem then you are probably ok. I would recommend talking to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon (like myself) to get on a good skin care regimen if you are concerned. ...Read more
