Cause Often Red Eyes?
Back when I was in elementary school, I loved swimming and my eyes were exposed to water from a swimming pool with chlorine, then I gave eye drops and the red eyes subsided, but later they turned red again and that happened until I was in college now. The redness is only in the right half of the eye. What drugs are suitable for treating it? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Contact with chlorine is indeed in some people can trigger eye irritation. This condition is likely to make your eyes red. Not only red eyes, eye irritation can also make the eyes feel itchy, sore, lumpy, runny, swollen, and other uncomfortable sensations arise. If the condition is mild, this irritation will usually subside by itself without the need for special treatment.
You can get around the irritation of your eyes when swimming by doing the following steps:
As much as possible, do not swim in public swimming pools, because they have the potential to contain a lot of impurities that are not only harmful to your eyes, but also to your skin and general health. Make sure, the pool water that you will use in a clean condition, is replaced periodically, and no harmful chemicals added Before swimming, use swimming goggles of good quality, so that water from the pool does not enter your eyes If there is pool water that enters the eyes, rinse immediately with clean running water, do not rubbing , especially with dirty hands If the eyes come back red or feel uncomfortable, you can use eye drops that contain artificial tears to make the irritation subside, however, if your complaints are very often repeated, or do not improve with natural treatment as mentioned above, then you should be vigilant and check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist doctor s eyes. It is feared, there are other factors that cause your eyes to continue to experience redness, for example due to allergies, viral or bacterial infections, acute closed-angle glaucoma, pterygium, xerophthalmia, and so on. With a direct examination, of course the doctor can give you the best treatment according to the cause.
Hope this helps ...
