Infections and Irritations
Like any organ, the eye is subject to problems and illnesses. Many are easily remedied.
Dry eye is the loss or reduction of the eye's normal ability to produce tears.
If you suffer from allergies, your eyes may be bothered too. They may be red, itchy, and watery and your eyes and eyelids may even be inflamed.
Watery eyes are caused by excessive tear production.
Irritation can occur when excess oil is produced by the glands near the eyelashes.
A foreign object could be a piece of dust, pollen, grit or something larger—and more serious.
Also known as conjunctivitis, pink eye is an inflammation of the transparent membrane that lines the eyelids and eye.
A sty is a bacterial infection near the root of an eyelash.
Computers are straining our eyes, creating a condition known as Computer Vision Syndrome.
