Dry Eyes and Scratched Cornea

Dry Eyes and Scratched Cornea

When doctors talk about dry eyes as a source of pain, perhaps that’s a light term. Dry eyes aren’t exactly the most painful thing in the world, but if they get dry enough, if they get irritated enough, people will actually pull at them, they’ll rub them, and then they can have even more problems because the dryness causes what physicians call a scratched cornea. When the corneal area gets scratched, it’s one of the most sensitive parts of the body. As a result, that pain that can occur can be excruciating. Fortunately, it only lasts about 24 hours. The cornea heals relatively rapidly.

“A Sight For Sore Eyes”

“A Sight For Sore Eyes”

Have you heard the phrase “a sight for sore eyes?” Clearly, sore eyes can be a problem and it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re looking at something undesirable. More and more people working on the computer or working in high allergy-related workplace stations are having problems with sore eyes. What we might suggest is that you try to use drops in the eyes, but drops that are not those that contain vasoconstrictors, because that can cause a reverse problem with too much red in the eye.

Treatment for Dry Eyes

Treatment for Dry Eyes

It’s tough to treat dry eyes, and it can be frustrating. What you need to do is find solutions that work for you. One of the big things is make sure you get solutions that do not have what we call a vasoconstrictor. Vasoconstrictors do get the red out, but the problem is, over time, it can cause a reaction where the vasoconstriction goes away, and you actually get redder eyes than you had in the first place. It’s an important thing to look at and to evaluate.
