Eye Problems

Human Eye

Eye problems can result from anything from pollen to simple overuse. Discharge from the eye can be from tired or irritated eyes watering, an infection or other problem. Eye irritation can happen easily and unless you are prepared to deal with it, can disrupt your activities because of the discomfort.

Symptoms

Irritated eyes may itch, ache or feel gritty. They may be sensitive to light, and your vision may become blurry. There may be eye pain in some cases. Eyes may become watery or produce a thick or crusty discharge.

Causes

There are many causes for eye irritation. Blepharitis is a common inflammatory ailment that affects the eyelids, causing burning, itching and irritation. The eyes may feel sandy, itchy and be red or swollen. There may be crusty discharge. Dry eye syndrome is another possible cause of irritated eyes. Keratitis is more serious and may include an infection of the cornea. Sties may form around the eye and cause irritation. Ocular rosacea may cause a burning or gritty feeling in the eyes. Other causes may be allergies, dust, smoke or other irritants in the eyes, overuse and eye strain.

Cautions

If eye problems do not go away in a short time, you should get your eyes looked at by a medical professional. The irritation may really be an injury like a torn cornea or a more serious condition that needs to be diagnosed.
