Depends on cause: The most common reason for burning eyes is eye dryness and there are lots of eyedrops in your pharmacy for this. Less common is allergy and you can find anti-allergy drops as well.

My eyes are becoming big and bulging out. I am taking medication for bp. Could they be related?

My eyes are becoming big and bulging out. I am taking medication for bp. Could they be related?

Unusual: The appearance of the eyes becoming big or protruding is usually from "lid retraction", where the upper and lower lids open so wide that the white of the eye can be seen even above the eye. This is most commonly from hyperthyroidism (grave's disease), which could also be associated with hypertension. Orbital inflammation could also cause this, but rarely bilaterally. Should get this checked out. ...Read more

My eyes keep burning and they often get teary. Should i just keep washing them with cold, clean water or should i opt for medication?
Thank you!

Sounds like Dry eyes: Dry eyes are an often the culprit of many symptoms in the eye which can include burning, stinging, tearing, foreign body sensation, tiredness, heaviness, blurred vision and eye pain. You can have some or all of the symptoms or even none of the symptoms and have dry eye. I would suggest starting with using over-the-counter artificial tears and a warm compress on the eye to see if that helps! ...Read more

I have severe chronic anxiety, sometimes when I'm very nervous I Have urge to move roll eyes and blink Is this a concern ?not on any medication

I  have severe chronic anxiety, sometimes when I'm very nervous I Have urge to move roll eyes and blink Is this a concern ?not on any medication

Not on meds?: You list medications. Did you stop taking them? You don't list therapy and for chronic severe anxiety you need to be treated. Does the eye movement reduce symptoms? If it does, that's not a bad mgmt strategy. If it doesn't, you can learn good skills in therapy. Concern is good if it guides you to improvement. Otherwise, it's not useful. You decide if you'd use it well. Best! ...Read more

I was born with dark circles under my eyes i'm wondering if this is a medical problem and if there is any medication that will reduce the color.

Dark Circles: Dark circles can be due to: allergy "allergic shiners", fatigue, genetic variation, aging. If they swell, check kidney, heart, thyroid function with md. Topical creams/fillers can help hide circles: only mask condition with no cure. What helps: drink 8 cups water/day, sunblock, hat, enough rest; avoid rubbing; makeup; facial plastic surgery when severe; allergist can help. ...Read more

I'm 24 years old but I have so many wrinkles under my eyes , it makes me deppressed, is there any way to vanish them?Does it have any medications?

Depends: The cause of the wrinkles is important in treating them. Do you have bad allergies? Do you smoke? Do you tan? If you are not getting sleep because of late nights/partying, all these can contribute. Good moisturizing lotion can help, but changing habits may be your best bet. If those things don't help, check with your local dermatologist or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun,is there any medication that I can use to heal m?

Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun,is there any medication that I can use to heal m?

Depends: Is the vision changed? Staring at the sun normally is too painful to sustain and you would blink and probably avoid the light to prevent damage. True staring at the sun while not blinking focuses the sun on the light receptors of the retina and will burn them out causing permanent loss. No medication will correct this but time will cause some improvement. ...Read more

Allergies distract me from homework and keeping my eyes open really painful. Why isn't allergy medication working?

Treatment: You need a stepped approach to treatment. Eliminate the allergen, go on loratidine or cetrizine, and use eye drops. I start with zaditor which is over the counter and this fails consider prescription mess such as bepreve (bepotastine besilate). Tough cases do well on alrex. Talk to your eye doctor. ...Read more

I get dizzy alot. I don't take any medication and I've had my eyes checked. What other things can I look for as far as symptoms and sutions?

Benign vertigo: There are many possible causes for dizziness. The most common is benign positional vertigo, which is dizziness worsened by rapid shifts in head position. I'm glad your eyes check out, but that's just the start of the investigation. A good next step is an evaluation by an ear nose and throat (ENT) specialist. ...Read more
