Eye Redness

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 22. The white part of my eye is red since last few days. Most of my work is to be done by laptop and phones. My cholesterol is a bit high. What can be the probable reasons for this.


Something similar to the above attached image. Please suggest me what to do?

    You may have conjunctivitis which is an easily treated eye infection.  Don’t delay and risk it getting worse.  Don’t buy anything from the supermarket you need to go to the chemist or opticians for advice on the best treatment (eye drops/cream) to use.  Take care.

    You may be forgetting to blink and your tears are drying out...sounds daft but this is a big problem in our computer age. Get some Hypromellose [artificial tears] eye drops and use them several times a day and before you sleep. As Lynn has said it could also be conjunctivitis which is an infection. Take care of those eyes...they are the only pair you get.

    You have eye strain for one thing, but to rule out some type of infection you need to see a eye Doctor.

    Eye is the very beautiful and sensetive part of our body so we should care more this organ, Eye redness may be caused by infection and stress heavy sitting in front of mobile or laptop.

    I am not eye specialist but still, I have some ideas which based on best eye research(https://www.healthline.com/health/eye-health/20-20-20-rule), May help to protect your eyes from infection and stress. Have you heard 20-20-20 eye rule?

    The 20-20-20 rule was developed by eye specialist doctors as an easy way to relax and refocus your eyes periodically. In this formula, you have to take a break in every 20 min. from computer and mobile then look into the min. 20 feet distance away for 20 sec. It's easy for everybody but sometimes you forgot that's why another alternate here to apply eye relax tools (http://ergonomictrends.com/20-20-20-rest-eyes-health-tool/) when you turn on your PC or laptop.
