I’m a 23 year old guy who has some sort of eye decease or eye problem.
It all started about 2½ year ago I was starting to get itchy, irritated and red eyes. I am not sure how it started exactly or how bad it was in the beginning, however I visited an eye doctor to get any kind of help and advice, now I’m here 21 year later and still with the same issue.
Every morning I wake up with terribly red eyes and my eyes feel all sore and tired. Not that I have pus in my eyes at all, atleast not more than normal people do.
I get better during the day, but my eyes are really red all day and it looks like im ill or have just cried or something. Its really annoying and impossible to look people in the eyes, as you may understand.
My eyes are really itchy during the morning and night (often at 20-21 o clock) even though I have slept 7-10 eyes a night – the symptoms stays the same. The itchy part in my eyes is mostly in my inner eyes (closest to nose) and outer eye (closest to ear).
My eyes feel very irritated for light and wind, I’m not sure if its “normal” as it feel like ages since I had my “normal” eyes.
Normally when I drink alcohol you get red eyes, I understand that, however when I just drink 1 or 2 beers I get incredible red eyes, as in really red and no “white” in my eyes is to spot at all. Not sure why this happens, but might be a clue to the problem.
Maybe important to inform you, that this is in both of my eyes. Also when looking into my eyes it seems that its only in vertical to iris and under iris which is red, above iris it seems to be all normal and white.
Need to tell also, when I am on vacation in other countries for 2 or 3 weeks, it’s the same issue. I haven’t had 1 single day where I wake up and my eyes seems fine.
What I have done / medicines:
I have seen several eye doctors during the past 2½ years and tried lots of different eye drops. Every doctor seems to believe its some kind of allergic reaction, however what I have learnt, is if it’s a allergic reaction I will not be same symptoms and issues every single day, so I start to believe it must be something else.
I started trying Opatanol, which is some kind of allergic eye drops, combined with some “dry eyes” eye drops, I believe it was Visine or something. These dry eyes, eyes drops helped moisturing my eyes, however doesn’t seem to have any effect at all.
Then I have tried Vexol and Spersadex, which a some eye drops with binyrebarkhormon, which helps a lot on the itching in my eyes and also seems to ease the redness in my eyes, at least for a day or so, however whenever I stop with this it all return again. Actually whenever I wake up from sleep it all seems to be “back to square one”.
After a couple of sessions two different eye doctors simply didn’t knew what to do, after trying more kind of eye drops including Zaditen, eye gel for the night and viscotears during the day.
Anyways I went to a doctor to check if I was allergic to something and it turns our im allergic cat, dogs, pollen and dust mites. As desperate as I am ive got to get rid of the pollen and dust mites allergic, so I went to weekly injections of same and sooner or later I would be “immune” to pollen and mites allergic. However this seems to not have any effect at all either.
I moved to Norway for 7 months ago and bought new apartment. I need to mention I have bought several of new pillows, bed and sheets. No help there.
I saw an eye doctor in Norway and told them about the issue I have and suggested of course same allergic medicins as I have tried already. However I read an article about Ocular Rosacea (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2358570/Sore-bloodshot-eyes-A-hidden-skin-problem-blame.html), which might cause eye issues as well as skin issues. I have for 2 weeks been on a Tetracyclin which might cause this issue, but didn’t seem to have any effect either. I have not been on any eye drops for the past couple of weeks and my eyes a killing me. I know this is a bad thing, but I really need either Vexol or Spersadex to keep me going, even though its really bad to use on long-term basis.
Anyways, desperate as I am, I am now looking for help online or other people who might have experienced same issues as I have. I really desperate to solve this issue I have, which affects me daily and really don’t stop thinking about what it could be that causes this problem.
P.s. I apologize for the bad English, if anything above isn’t explained properly, please just let me know.
