Causes Red And Swollen Eyes When You Wake Up?
I want to ask why you are sleeping, why are my eyes swollen and red?
Complaints of red and swollen eyes are most often caused by acute conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva that can be caused by viral, bacterial, allergic infections and so on. Can be accompanied by complaints of itching, watery eyes, rubbing, a sense of foreign body in the eyes, swollen eyelids, etc. Visual function is usually normal. In addition to conjunctivitis, swollen eyelids can be found in hordeolum (bintitat), kalazion, blepharitis, and so on.
If the eyes are swollen and red only occur a few moments after waking up and then gradually disappear without other symptoms. You do not need to worry, this is normal. Redness of the eyes is caused by temporary dilation of blood vessels to meet the needs of oxygen in the eye that is lacking or due to dryness of the eye that occurs due to excessive use before bedtime.
Complaints of red eyes accompanied by decreased vision need to watch out, for example in cases of keratitis (inflammation of the cornea), acute glaucoma, uveitis, endophthalmitis and so on. We recommend that you immediately consult a specialist eye doctor if your red and swollen eye complaints, accompanied by vision problems.
You can do a cold compress to reduce itching or pain if present. Avoid rubbing your eyes. If there is a rub, you can wipe it using clean, dry tissue. Wash hands before and after touching eyes.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
