Red eye can be caused by many different things ranging from mild allergies to serious eye disease. Red eye is not the name of a specific eye disease rather it describes the appearance of the eye when it is being bothered by one of a variety of problems. Red eye can be the result of allergies or be caused by a serious eye illness, injury or eye infection. Even the flu or common cold can cause red eye.
When a patient comes in with red eye our eye doctor in Summerlin will need to determine the cause. Eyes can turn red when the blood vessels on the surface of the eye become irritated and inflamed. Our eye doctor knows at this point he can either have a medical emergency on hand or a person with a mile cold. It is then his job to find out the exact cause. Once the cause of the red eye is determined he will provide appropriate treatment. Common causes of red eye may include allergies, dust exposure, wind exposure, or even dry air. Sometimes a patient is simply tired and has red eyes due to lack of sleep. Sometimes patients with red eye have eye infections. In this case there is often a discharge or pain associated with the red eye. Red eye can also be caused by infected contact lenses. Some more serious problems that are causing the red eye can be blepharitis; conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, or even glaucoma. Once our eye doctor determines the exact cause of the red eye he will be able to proceed with the proper, effective treatment.
