welcome to just answer
are you available online at present?
can you give me some more information regarding your question
are you having any fever?
about a month or so ago I experienced some minor discomfort in my eyes- sensitive to light- casuing squinting, etc. It lasted briefly, then went away. Tonight, i am experiencing the same discomfornt. if i am around any light at all- causes squinting, discomfort- mainly in my left eye. it is difficult to look at computer screen, be around light, etc. my eye is bloodshot, full of redness. some slight headache, and some chills and runny nose.
it is impossible to sleep, even in total darkness- burning in eye
it has not been exposed to any chemicals, etc.
I wear contacts and took them out as soon as I experienced discomfort- put on my glasses- same problem
Any chronic illnesses, regular medicines etc. that you are on?
it constantly weeps of clear fluid
Any f/h of similar symptoms?
no family history
Ok can you hold on for a while
i am back
given the history of wearing contact lens and a minor similar problem previously, the most probable cause seems to be a corneal erosion
this occurs due to chronic dryness of cornea in contact lens wearers
the other possibility is an eye infection or pink eye
rarely, you might be having an attack of herpes infection in the eye, uveitis (inflammation of the eye) or glaucoma (increased pressure of the eye)
ideally you need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist to reach the exact diagnosis and starting treatment
in the meantime, you can use lubricating eye drops like genteal/refresh tears/systane 9available OTC)
do not splash any water in the eyes
but the immediate action should be to consult an Ophthalmologist as soon as possible
hope you get well soon
any more information you need?
thanks...I'll try the drops tonight
you are most welcome
wish you and your family a very happy new year
thanks you too
