Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Regarding complaints experienced in the form of dirt in the eye, it should be noted and equipped with some relevant information such as since when the exact time this symptom was experienced, whether accompanied by pain if the pain lasts for how long, whether accompanied by multiple views or appear to see flashes of light, whether there has been a history of trauma or falls and bumps in the eye, is there a history of eye surgery. Based on complaints made, there are still wide possibilities for diagnosis, some of which are related, i.e.
- Inflammation of the cornea (keratitis)
- Inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis)
- Inflammation of the tear duct (dacryocystitis)
Inflammation of the cornea or keratitis is inflammation of the cornea of the deeper layers of the eye from the conjunctiva. This can be caused by viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infections as well as several things related to trauma to the cornea. Symptoms experienced are
Red eyes and pain,
Vision feels blurred and feels dazzled
Tears or tears constantly.
Difficult to open eyes.
The sensation of a foreign body in the eye.
Inflammation of the conjunctiva or conjunctivitis is inflammation that occurs in the conjunctiva or the lining of the lining of the front of the eye. This is caused by infection either due to bacteria or viruses, and in some cases less common due to allergies, parasites, or even fungus. Symptoms of conjunctivitis generally include watery eyes and itching. In infections caused by bacteria are often accompanied by discharge and thick viscous tears, whereas due to viruses the discharge is more liquid. In conjunctivitis most do not cause blurred vision.
Inflammation of the tear duct or dacryocystitis is inflammation of the tear duct. The symptoms experienced are swelling and redness of the eyes bordering the nose. Usually the eyes will feel runny, especially those caused by bacteria will appear pus out of the swollen and usually accompanied by pain.
What can be done for treatment at home is
- Clean the eyelids and eyelashes by using cotton and water from a sticky or crusty layer.
- Avoid wearing contact lenses first.
- If the activity is often exposed to dust or smoke you should use protective glasses
Further treatment is tailored to the cause of the inflammation, so it will be better if further examined by an ophthalmologist to get the appropriate treatment.
