What Causes Pain In The Right Eye When Held But Not Swollen?
Tonight, I want to ask. My right eye hurts when held and blinks. But there is no swelling at all. Why is that?
Hello, tami_aa, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
First, it is important to ascertain in advance which part of the eye hurts, whether on the eyelid, the white part, or the black part of the eye, so that you can know where the interference is. Some of these conditions can make the eyes feel painful:
1. Hordeolum (bump / pimple on the eyelid)
2. Dry eye / dry eye
3. Keratitis / inflammation of the cornea
4. Foreign objects enter the eye
5. Iritis / uveitis: inflammation of the back of the cornea (iris and uvea)
6. Sinusitis can cause pain in the eye
7. Acute glaucoma
To determine the cause, it must be seen which part of the eye is affected and an examination of your eyes must be done. Consult with an ophthalmologist especially if the pain does not go away, there is a sharp decrease in vision, blurred eyes, reduced visual field, watery eyes, red, or accompanied by headaches and nausea / vomiting.
Do not touch the eyes especially with your hands not washed because it can cause further infections. For a while while the eyes are still in pain and have not done an examination to the eye doctor you should not touch anything to the eye (such as contact lenses).
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
