Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com
Is there profuse watering from the eyes too?
Since the symptoms are seenin both eyes, it could be due to viral conjunctivitis.
what is that
It is usually self limiting and does not require any specific treatment except lubricating eyedrops.
It may take 1 to 3 weeks to subside completely. It is better to start putting OTC preservative free Refresh tears eyedrops, 1 drop 4 times a day.
will it go away or will i need to see a doctor
In the meanwhile discontinue wearing contact lenses for 3 weeks.
what causes it
In case the symptoms persist or worsen beyond a week, then consider a visit to the ophthalmologist.
Viral conjunctivitis can occur from spread from other infected individuals. It can occur even from aerosol spread.
Is there anything else that I can answer for you?
