Eye Solutions Such As Red Membranes Covering The White Part?
My mother’s left eye seemed to have a red membrane that slightly covered the white part. Why is that? And what’s the solution?
Hello, Khusna Fiinur Akromah. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints about the red membrane covering the whites of the eye can be caused by several possibilities, which often include:
Pterygium (a triangular fibrovascular tissue, usually starting in the eye near the nose, pointing towards the middle of the eyeball, associated with exposure to ultraviolet light entry of light into the eye) Hordeolum (a lump due to infection of one or more oil glands in the eyelid, symptoms: swelling, redness, heat sensation and pain in the lump, commonly occurs in one eye) Kalazion (is inflammation due to blockage of the gland oil on the eyelids, symptoms: lump, painless, palpable, can disappear on its own in a few weeks without therapy) You are advised to check yourself directly to the doctor or ophthalmologist for proper evaluation and treatment. As a suggestion at home, you are advised not to just use eye drops without the advice of a doctor who treats you directly. Also avoid eye rubbing habits and excessive exposure to sunlight, dust, and pollution; for example by wearing hats, sunglasses, and masks when you're outdoors.
