Every time my husband blinks, his right eye cannot close completely, and his eyes sting and often water. I wonder why? How is it handled?

1 Answer:

Hello Nurkasih, Thank you for the question.


The eyelids that do not close completely are known as lagoftalmos. If your eyes are unable to close completely, they will become dry, causing them to sting. This dry eye triggers the production of tears to wet the eye surface, so the sufferer will experience watery eyes. Some of the causes of lagoftalmos are:

eye injury
Bell's palsy
stroke
Guillain-Barre syndrome
tumor

To find out what happened to your husband, of course, a direct examination by a doctor is needed. Please advise your husband to see a doctor. In addition to knowing your husband's complaints, the doctor needs to examine your husband. The doctor can determine the next treatment after knowing the cause. In the meantime, advise your husband to use eye drops containing artificial tears to prevent dry eyes. Avoid exposure to air and air pollution.


Hope this information is helpful.
