1 Answer:

Thank you for asking I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.

The redness in the area under the cornea of ​​the eye as you mentioned can be caused by dilation of the blood vessels around the cornea which occurs due to inflammation of a certain part of the eye. In this condition, redness occurs not only at the bottom of the cornea, but around the cornea. This is caused by:

Dry eye (dry eye): symptoms include red eyes, pain, gritty sensation
Inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis): symptoms include red eyes, pain, normal sharp vision, clear, white, or yellowish discharge depending on the cause
Inflammation of the cornea (keratitis): symptoms in the form of eye pain, red eyes, decreased vision, eye glare and pain when exposed to the sun / light
Inflammation of the pigment membrane (uveitis): symptoms in the form of eye pain, red eyes, decreased vision, pus in the eye can be found
Acute glaucoma: symptoms in the form of red eyes, headache, nausea, decreased vision, pain in the eye
Eye irritation
Foreign body in the eye
Eye trauma, for example from scratches

However, the redness under the cornea can also be caused by a rupture of the conjunctival blood vessel (subconjunctival hemorrhage) which can be caused by:

Prolonged cough (for example in pertussis)
Prolonged sneezing (for example in severe nasal allergies)
Blood vessel diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus
Blood clotting disorders

To ascertain the cause of the complaint, you should further consult an ophthalmologist to be examined directly. The doctor will dig further into the course of your disease and will perform a detailed eye examination. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, eye pressure checks, etc. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for you according to the underlying condition.

Things you can do to improve the condition, prevent worsening, while maintaining the health of your eyes are:

Avoid rubbing your eyes
Wash hands before touching the eye area
Use sunglasses when exposed to the sun to reduce glare and pain, as well as prevent eye irritation by dust and foreign matter
Avoid reading / looking at the screen too closely, reading in a dark room, reading in small letters
Avoid staring at the computer / screen for too long. Do the 20 principle, which is every 20 minutes looking at the computer, resting your eyes for 20 seconds by looking at objects that are 20 feet away
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day
Eat nutritious foods, especially those containing vitamins A, B complex, E, C, omega 3 to support eye health, which you can find in vegetables, fruits and meat
Avoid consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs

That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
