Red Eyes And Gaze Like Seeing A Rainbow?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, since this morning I woke up when I saw the light like there was a rainbow and also red eyes on the back. But last night my eyes were healthy
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The eye sees a rainbow when looking at the light indicating the swelling of the cornea (the clear layer above the black part of the eye). Some things that can cause corneal swelling (edema) include:
injury to the cornea (for example, because of an eye with a sharp object)
infection of the cornea
acute glaucoma (sudden increase in eye pressure)
excessive use of contact lenses (for example using contact lenses while sleeping)
corneal endothelial layer disorders (Fuchs' dystrophy) which is a genetic disorder
post eye surgery
If the visual impairment is accompanied by red eye, the possible causes are corneal injury, corneal infection, acute glaucoma, or excessive use of contact lenses. You should immediately check yourself to the eye doctor so that further eye examinations can be done.
For now, avoid rubbing or holding your eyes with your hands to avoid corneal injury or further infection. We recommend that you do not use any eye drops as well because it can be dangerous if used as indicated.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
