Customer Question
Based on some uneducated google...
Based on some uneducated google research, i think I may have a Recurrent Corneal Erosion. I find that opening my eyes at times when waking up can cause immense pain and watering of the eyes. In short, it feels like my eyelid rips layer off my my eyelid.Should I get this checked out? I'm concerned by the information i read on 'lack of response to treatment'. It Happens once every 3-4 weeks on average I would say. No memorable trauma, other than a contact worn too long perhaps. I am more concerned about possible worsening of the problem more so than it's inconvenience every so often.

A tearing feeling or pain in the eyes upon awakening is a symptom seen in a lot of eye conditions. In Recurrent Corneal Erosions, the most marked symptom is excruciating pain in the eyes that seems to come from the back of the eye ball and also photophobia which means that the eye is not able to tolerate sunlight or bright lights of any nature. If you do not have these two symptoms then I doubt you have recurrent corneal erosion. Having said that, I think this warrants an examination by your PCP and a possible referral to the Eye doctor for a detailed evaluation under a slit lamp.

Your PCP can also prescribe artificial tear gels and topical anti inflammatory eye drops in the interim for relief.

Hope this helps.
