Treatment For Itchy Eyes?
Again, my eyes have been itching inside my eyelids for 2 weeks, the itching is very annoying, but my vision hasn’t decreased, do you think I should buy a good medicine so that my eyes don’t itch anymore?
Hello sister Luise Maria, Itchy eyelids can be caused by dry eyes, allergic conjunctivitis, irritant conjunctivitis. Risk factors that cause itching include disruption of tear production as a lubricant for the eye surface, exposure to wind, dust or smoke, sunlight, exposure to allergy-triggering substances or chemicals that trigger irritation, use of contact lenses, and the habit of rubbing the eyes. In the early stages, treatment can be done with eye drops containing artificial tears, use protective glasses when going out or driving, avoid using contact lenses, and avoid rubbing the eyes. If the symptoms that have been felt for a long time have not subsided, you should consult an ophthalmologist for an immediate examination such as papillary hypertrophy or lumps in the eyelids, hyperemic conjunctiva or red eyes or swelling of the eye glands and tear ducts. The ophthalmologist will also examine the condition in your eyes, and administer medication according to the diagnosis, such as the use of drops containing steroids, antihistamines to open the gland ducts if they are blocked.
