Right Eye Feels Lumpy And A Bit Red?
Question, how come my right eye feels like there is a lump on the top even though it’s not full, and it’s also a bit red,rnWhat’s the solution?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Have you noticed a lump or membrane in your eye? So, do you feel other complaints, such as watery eyes, sores, blurred vision, and so on?
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, or the clear membrane that lines the outside of the eye. The trigger is not always due to the entry of foreign objects (splitting), but can also be due to allergies or infections. As a result of inflammation of the conjunctiva, patients can not only experience a sensation of lump and redness, but the eyes often become watery, feel itchy, stinging, and produce abnormal secretions (blekekan).
In addition to conjunctivitis, the feeling of lump and redness in your eyes that you experience can also arise due to other factors, including:
Asthenopia (tired eyes, for example due to too long using gadgets, reading too close)
Xerophthalmia (dry eye)
Pterygium (eye membranes that appear due to overgrowth of the conjunctiva due to exposure to ultraviolet light, and excessive dry air)
Uveitis (inflammation of the uveal tract)
Pseudopterygium (eyelids that appear as a result of exposure to trauma or chemicals)
Ectropion (eyelashes that grow outward)
Entropion (ingrown eyelashes)
Hordeolum (stye, inflammation of the gland in the eyelid)
Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids)
Preseptal cellulitis (soft tissue infection around the eye)
Tumors, and so on
If the new complaint lasts 1 or 2 days, you can do the following solutions as an initial treatment:
Drop eye drops that contain artificial tears (artificial tears) to make the eyes feel more comfortable
Don't rub your eyes too often
Compress the eyes using warm water
Use protective glasses to protect your eyes from dust, pollutants, and other foreign particles
If there is a substance that you are allergic to, stay away from exposure to that substance
Avoid looking directly at the sun with the naked eye
However, if there is no improvement within 3 days, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist for proper treatment.
I hope this helps.
