Pain In The Tip Of The Right Eye?
Hello. My right eye aches like pain at the end near the ear. I have given eye drops for 3 days but it still hurts. If I see it, my eyes don’t seem to have a problem. Not blushing too. But the inside is painful. But my eyes are minus right and left. My guess is that my eyes are hurting like this because I look at too many cellphones. What should I do so my eyes don’t hurt anymore? Is there any medicine that I can buy directly at the pharmacy? Please help, thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the right eye, especially at the outer edges, it can indeed happen one of them because of tired eyes (asthenopia) due to excessive use of gadgets. However, it may also be that pain in your eyes arises from other triggers, such as hordeolum (bumps, inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids), irritant contact dermatitis (local skin inflammation due to contact with irritative substances), insect bites, glaucoma (increased pressure in the ball eyes that damage the nerves of the eye), entropion or ectropion (eyelids that fold in or out abnormally), disorders of eye refraction (such as nearsightedness, astigmatism), and many other possible eye disorders. Not only that, disorders of other organ systems, such as migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, sinusitis, and psychological disorders can also cause pain around the eyes as you experience.
If this complaint is very disturbing, you should try to overcome this first by:
Limit your habits using gadgets, including mobile phones, a maximum of 2 times a day
Sleep early and more regularly
Warm or cold compresses on your sore eyes
Do not hold the area around the eyes with dirty hands
Make yourself more relaxed, no stress or excessive anxiety
Take paracetamol to help you reduce pain
However, if within 3 days your complaint does not improve, or other complaints appear more severe such as swelling, red eyes, visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, fever, etc., we recommend that you check yourself directly to the doctor or ophthalmologist so that further evaluation and treatment can be done according to the cause.
I hope this helps.
