See an eye doctor: What you are describing sounds like an eyelid infection (conjunctivitis). The most common cause is bacterial and is usually very easily treated with antibiotic eye drops. An eye doctor can quickly diagnose and treat the condition, and may even take a culture to determine the cause. Don't try to see if it will go away on it's own; it is safer to treat it early.

If the skin around your eye becomes swollen or red, if you have discharge from your eye, redness in the white area of the eye, or any vision changes, you should see medical care. The symptoms that you have as of now don't sound too serious, but change can occur rapidly. If everything looks normal, this can wait, because you won't be treated as a preventative measure anyway.
Staph infections are potentially very serious, so if anything changes for the worse, find a qualified ophthalmologist to examine you and treat if needed. Read more
Eye has been red for two days, today I noticed a white spot. My eye doctor is closed tomorrow, if this is an ulcer will I be okay until Thursday?
Could be an ulcer: It sounds like you have had this experience before. Ulcers occur on the cornea, especially in relationship to contact lens overwear. Take the lens out and keep the eye clean. If you have left over antibiotics from your previous experience, it is best to start them. If the condition gets at all worse, then see another eye doctor for evaluation and treatment. Read more

I exprncd this on a carousel as a kid! I closed my eyes as it spinned faster and wen I opened em, I saw things upside down! What happened to the eyes?

Very low chance: While there are no statistics, the chance of a person's two eyes being different colors (heterochromia) is extremely low. More commonly, some people are born with a segment of one iris being a different color from the rest. Also, certain diseases can either increase the brown color (nevus, melanoma) while others can lighten the eye (certain inflammations and glaucomas). Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Eye color: This may be congenital resulting from either horners syndrome or it could be a specific eye problem causing loss of pigment or atrophy of the iris of one eye.

No: The risk of staring at the sun is with the open eyes as the light could be focused on the retina and damage the light receptors. It is annoying to have the sun shining for a lengthy period on the eyes, and that is why those sun shields which look like two cups held together with a connecting rod are so popular on the beach.

Not usually: If both eyes are healthy, and the neural connections are intact, both eyes should react similarly to light. A standard test in the ophthalmology clinic involves exposing each eye to a bright light to examine the pupil response. If one pupil does not react properly, that could indicate a problem. If you are noticing differences between your eyes, you should see an ophthalmologist. Read more

Yes: It is a basic reflex everyone has, when the eyelids close, the eyes roll up. You can carefully pull the eyelids of a friend (with their permission) back and see that you see mainly the whites of their eyes (sclera) where the pupil would be if the eye was open voluntarily... The reflex is called bell's phenomenon. Read more
