Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Red and itchy eyes are generally caused by allergic conditions (allergic conjunctivitis). This condition is usually carried genetically and can be related to other allergic conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic skin inflammation.
However, red eye can also be caused by:
Viral infection on the front side of the eye Bacterial infection on the front side of the eye Acute glaucoma Inflammation of the iris Subconjunctival hemorrhage For your left eye, which has not been examined, you should consult your ophthalmologist so that you can track the cause.
For the right eye, first try using a medication given by your doctor, because it might still be related to allergies. If it has not improved, you should control to the doctor who examined you before.
As for what you should do is:
Avoid rubbing your eyes Wash your hands before touching the area around your eyes Do not swim before the eyes heal Use glasses to reduce dust exposure. Sunglasses can be used if there is eye pain / glare when seeing light Avoid materials that trigger an allergic reaction on you
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
