I have an app with an eye specialist but i just want to see if anyonr else has the same problem..

for over a year now ive had weird things going on with my eyes. my eyes will feel like theyre on fire or it feels like a burning solution was put in them and i cant keep them open, i have to close my eyes tightly to get relief. other times they just feel inflamed and watery without the need to close them. But whenever this happens i look in the mirror and the white part has little red lines all over. Each time the lines have a different pattern. Sometimes the lines are really red and pronounced and are on the corners of the eye or all over. Other times there seems to be a ring of redness around the iris. And then sometimes they just have a general light reddish look. This comes and goes and occurs in the day and at night. ill wake up.to go to thr bathroom and will.see that my eyes are red but without the burning feeling.And sometimes they actually hurt and sting.

    You mention uveitis...has this been diagnosed? I have had it in the past. Were you prescribed steroid eye drops?

    Do you have other health issues?

    Hello Anna, from the way you describe your eyes, they sound very very dry.

    Have you tried buying some over the counter lubricating eye drops? Preservative free would be best.

    Who suggested that you might have uveitis?

    I agree with Mrs Mop. This sounds exactly like the start of Dry Eye Syndrome caused most probably by the tiny glands in your eyelids starting to malfunction and ceasing to produce the essential lubricating oil. The first thing to try is lubricating drops which can easily be bought . Ask for Hypromellose drops or Artificial tears. They have to be used quite often during the day and again put in just before sleep.

    Do let us know what your specialist says.
