Red eye, is a symptom of the following eye diseases, namely:
1. Conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the white outer layer of the eyeball and eyelid. Can be caused by germ infections, allergic reactions and chemical irritants.
2. Keratitis, namely inflammation of the outer layer of the black eyeball.
3. Corneal ulcer, an open wound on the black outer layer of the eyeball (cornea). Most often caused by bacterial infections.
4. Uveitis, which is inflammation that occurs in the uvea or middle layer of the eye.
5. foreign objects.
Each of the above diseases requires different treatments. In addition, there are diseases that require immediate medical treatment, because they can cause blindness. Therefore, you should immediately consult with your nearest doctor or ophthalmologist so that further examination can be done first and then get treatment related to your complaint.
Meanwhile, avoid rubbing your eyes because it will only make the condition worse. When you want to consult with a doctor, do not forget to use a mask before leaving the house. Using a cloth mask alone is enough to help break the chain of transmission of the Corona virus. And don't forget to always avoid physical contact with anyone you encounter, keep a minimum distance of 1 m from other people and always routinely clean your hands using a alcohol-based hand sanitizer of at least 60 percent. Avoid holding the face when outside the house. If hands are dirty, they must be washed with soap and running water for 20 seconds.
Thus hopefully useful.
