Red Eyes, Swollen And Tears When Sleeping?
I want to ask how to treat swollen red eyes and shed tears. I’ve already taken the medicine from the doctor and the medicine has run out and the redness from the eyes hasn’t been reduced for a week.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
For complaints of red, swollen and watery eyes, can be caused by several things, including red eye complaints that affect the decline in vision function and complaints that do not affect the decline in vision function.
Red eye that affects visual complaints can be divided into inflammation of the cornea (the front lining of the eye or called keratitis), inflammation of the deeper parts of the eye (uveitis), and can be caused by inflammation of the eyeball (endophthalmitis).
Red eye that does not cause vision function can be divided into: inflammation of the front layer of the eye (conjunctivitis) caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses, inflammation of the white front layer of the eye (scleritis), or inflammation of dryness of the eye (dry eyes) .
Conjunctivitis is distinguished based on the cause, there are so-called bacterial conjunctivitis, viral conjunctivitis and fungal conjunctivitis. Bacterial conjunctivitis is characterized by greenish yellow tears, red eyes, watery, swollen, visual function is still good. Viral conjunctivitis is characterized by the presence of clear, clear eye fluid, usually around the patient there are people who are suffering from a similar eye too. Fungal conjunctivitis is usually marked by the presence of viscous eye fluid, starting usually because the eyes are exposed to plant dust, trees, contact lenses and in patients with low endurance such as patients suffering from sugar pain.
For the treatment of swollen and runny red eye pain, further examination is needed with an eye specialist first to find out the source of the eye pain. Once the cause is known, only the right drug can be determined to treat complaints of red, swollen and watery eyes. You should immediately check with the nearest eye specialist.
Prevention can be done:
- keep eyes from being exposed to dust or vegetation
- keep hands clean from dirt
-Increase immune system to avoid contracting eye pain from viruses, by eating healthy and nutritious food, resting for 6-8 hours a day
Thus, hopefully useful :)
