Hi I'm Peter. I have had a problem with my eyes for a while, I left it as I thought it would clear up and go but it has not. My eyes are red, saw and whenever I go to sleep they always water so I wake up in the morning with dry crusty eyes. I have had this for a while and it does affect my appearance so if you could find a diagnosis or anything that would be great!
Hi there,There are two possibilities here.1. Chronic allergic conjunctivitis from environmental allergies.This can be treated with over the counter Ketotifen eye drops twice daily and Anti histamine Loratadine 10 mg daily. 2. Bacterial conjunctivitis --or bacterial infection which will require antibiotic eye drops like ciprofloxacin for a week. Please discuss with your doctor also. Nothing serious, since you do not have any permanent change in vision. But should be checked out. Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
