and my right eye is still clear. If I use Visine for Contacts Lubricating + Rewetting Drops on my left eye, it will be clear for a short period of time when the eye is still wet, but will quickly become blurry after just a few minutes. Before I could go an entire day without using the eye drop. Now I can hardly see with one eye clear and one eye blurry. When I wear eye glasses, both eyes are clear. It's been bothering me and I really want to find out what it is about the rewetting drops that could make my left eye clear and why my eye becomes blurry without it. And why is it that when I wear eyeglasses instead of contact, my left eye is clear. Thanks so much for reading my questions!View Thread
I am pretty sure that I have accidentally rubbed venom from a brown recluse into my eye after smashing one that was on my hand while in bed. My eyes were instantly irritated and itched very bad. I took an antihistamine tablet and it helped. Also put Visine in eyes but it has been 3 days and they are still irritated. Should I go to the doctor or optomolagist? Thanks for your help!View Thread
I'm going through a very tough time right now because of what I think are vision headaches, however I'm not certain. I'm hoping someone can help me determine what's causing them. I'm going to describe my situation as briefly as I can. I graduated from college in October, 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Software Engineering. I started a new job in Jan 2011 as a computer programmer for a local company. One year after I started in this position, I began getting headaches that made it very difficult for me to keep my normal pace of work. I would have to constantly rest my eyes to avoid the headache getting stronger. The headaches got progressively worse throughout my second year ending with my resignation. The week I resigned I could not work on the computer for more than 2 minutes without getting this huge headache that made me turn my eyes away from the computer. After resigning I took 6 months of rest thinking the reason was that the job was too intense for me, and then I started in a new position that was less demanding. But the same symptoms started coming back in the new position and within 2 months I had to resign once again. Please, any advice on this would be highly appreciated as I am unemployed at the moment and I'm not sure what's causing these headaches. I am 29 yrs old. If you need more details about the symptoms I would be more than happy to give them. Thanks in advance.View Thread

For about a month, every so often when I wake up. my left eye is burning and feeling like I have something in it, it's very watery, tearing a lot, although looking in the mirror, there is nothing in it, and I can't blink, because it hurts and makes it worse (the feeling of something inside). I am also tearing a lot, and my nose is running.
It is very sensitive to light and touch. I tried using red eye drops, but it doesn't help. I woke with it at 8am, and it's 10am now. Hasn't gone away. It is ALWAYS my left eye, never my right, and it always happens early in the morning after I wake up.
It feels like there's a scratch, eye lash, tiny rock in there. It makes my eyes water, Just touching my eye lid is very sensitive. I can't keep them open, The light hurts it more. It also makes my nose run but stuffed at the same time.
I am trying to see an eye doctor today but so far I can't get immediate help.View Thread
I'm 21 years old and migraines are common in my family. I was just home alone and freaked out because all of a sudden I had a sharp hit of pain in the front of my head and then everything went slanted, left to right. I sort of fell back on my bed - Thank God I was in my room - and then my migraine progressed as normal and everything righted itself. I've had aura migraines before but the entire world hasn't shifted before.

I have what I think is dry eye and 3 years ago I had lasik. My problem is that my eyes get very red although they don't itch or really feel super dry.
I've used several eye drops but only the Naphcon and Antihistamine Eye Drops really seem to reduce the redness. In fact some of the highly rated drop seem to make my eyes glossy and redder. It is embarrassing in business to look like I've been up all night.
1. Is it possible I could be having a reaction to a preservative in the bottle of eye drops 2. Would the individual preservative free be better for me? 3. How many times per day can I safely use Antihistamine Eye Drops? 4. Should I consider having my eye dr insert the tear plug things?
Redness is my main problem that I'm trying to overcome.
