Doctor why are my eyes red?

Red eye

Red eye can be caused by a host of things including viral and bacterial infections, allergies, blepharitis (Treatment for Itchy, Red Irritated Eye Lids( known as Blepharitis) and dry eyes (Dry Eye Diagnostics and Treatments).

The inflammation present in the white of the eye is known as Conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is defined as inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is a clear transparent tissue covering the white of the eye.

Symptoms of conjunctivitis are:

  • Red eye

  • Pink eye

  • Glossy eye

  • Swelling of the eye or eyelids

  • A gritty feeling in one or both eyes

  • Itching or burning sensation in one or both eyes

  • Excessive tearing

  • Goopy or stringy discharge from one or both eyes

  • Pink or red discoloration to the whites of one or both eyes

  • Increased sensitivity to light

  • Eyelashes stuck together in the morning

Conjunctivitis may also cause blurry fluctuating vision. It is essential that conjunctivitis is properly diagnosed by an eye doctor because many forms of viral conjunctivitis can be highly contagious and some forms of infection can progresses leading to tissue damage, and in some cases loss of vision.
