Eyes That Feel Itchy, Like There Are Lumps, And Redness?
I want to ask before my eyes had experienced a blood vessel rupture, but after I went to the eye doctor the doctor gave me the drug Cendo Statrol and Protagent A and after my eyes recovered but my eyes were still red when exposed to sunlight until the doctor gave me the medicine Ocuflam and Conal but right now my eyes are itchy and like there are lumps sometimes red is that the result of dry eyes? And can I use artificial tear drops?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Eye that feels itchy, like there is a lump, and redness is one of them can be caused by dry eyes. This condition can be caused by several factors, namely:
Reduced tear production, for example due to aging, side effects of medical measures in the eye (eg laser surgery), tear gland damage (such as due to inflammation or radiation), side effects of drugs (such as antihistamines, decongestants, anti-depressants, anti-hypertension, anti acne, birth control pills, or also due to certain diseases (such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus)
Increased evaporation of tears, for example due to exposure to wind or dry air, rarely blinks (for example when you look at gadgets too much), eyelid disorders (eg ectropion or entropion)
Imbalance of tear composition, for example due to stunting, blepharitis, rosacea, and so on
Not only that, your eye complaints can also be caused by other conditions, such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, uveitis, pterygium, allergies, foreign body intruding, and so on. Depending on the cause, this condition can require different management.
In general, the use of artificial tears (artificial tears) to deal with complaints that you experience may be done. However, you must also balance these steps with other efforts, such as:
Do not use excessive gadget
Rest your eyes, i.e. with enough sleep, compress using cold water
Protect eyes from intruding foreign objects, including dust, pollution, insects, and so on
Use protective eyewear first so that your eyes are not exposed to excessive wind and dry air
Do not stare directly into the sun with the naked eye
Do not develop using other eye drops without doctor's advice
If within 1 to 3 days your complaint still does not improve, try to check your condition directly to the doctor or ophthalmologist.
I hope this helps.
