Why do my eyes sting and turn red?

Allergic conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva in the presence of a certain allergen (grasses, dust mites, fungi, etc.). The symptoms are itching, redness, lacrimation, eye discharge with a white mucus component and photophobia. It can be limited to one season (spring) or it can be perennial. Sometimes, it is associated with other diseases (rhinitis, asthma, atopy).

It is advisable to avoid the allergen but if not, there are several measures that we must adopt: adequate hygiene, wash with physiological saline and no eye rubbing; In addition to taking antihistamines, anti-inflammatories and using topical corticosteroids.

When the treatment is suspended, the symptomatology can recur if one remains exposed to the allergen.

Why does presbyopia or tired eyesight occur? Can it be avoided? Can it be operated?

The lens, in the eyes of the young person, is very flexible and has great ability to deform by the action of the ciliary muscles. This deformability allows it to vary its power as a lens to focus on near or far objects. However, with age, it loses its elasticity and its ability to adapt. This is called presbyopia or tired eyesight. This phenomenon is common among all people with at least 40-45 years of age.

As of today, we do not have any method to prevent or avoid it. To solve the problem, reading glasses or bifocal contact lenses are prescribed. In addition, you can resort to surgery, for example, in cases associated with some diseases such as cataract, myopia or hyperopia. In other cases, it is possible to resort to Lasik refractive surgery procedures that offer a good short and distant vision. This is the case for treatments such as Supracor.

What are eye floaters? How do they manifest themselves and how can they be prevented?

They are small spots that can be seen when looking at a smooth, illuminated background like a wall or the sky. They are tiny conglomerates of the jelly-like substance that forms the vitreous humour of the eye. Generally, they are of little importance and are caused by age-related changes although they can be associated with serious diseases, such as uveitis, vitreous haemorrhage or retinal detachment.

They cannot be prevented, but they can help detect other possibly related issues precociously. It is advisable to consult the ophthalmologist if suddenly new floating bodies appear; if you see flashes of light or if you experience a loss of lateral vision.

Why do I have a sense of discomfort and dryness in my eyes, as well as frequent tearing up and why does it worsen towards the end of the day?

The ocular dry syndrome is the most common reason for requesting an appointment with an ophthalmologist.

The surface of the eye, bathed by the tear film, is the first defence against any aggression (environmental pollution, extreme temperatures, solar radiation, etc.). With age and hormonal changes, the tear film is altered, causing ocular dryness; other times, the consumption of prescription drugs, immunological diseases or blepharitis, can be the cause of this syndrome.

Symptoms range from foreign body sensation, photophobia and tearing up to visual impairment. The treatment includes addressing the reason behind the dryness if possible, using tear substitutes and lacrimal punctum occlusion so that the tear remains in contact with the eye, among others, for as long as possible.
