Focus on Technology
Each month we'll focus on some of the advanced tools and equipment that we use at Midwest Eye Associates to provide our patients with the best and most advanced professional eye care.
This month the focus is on The GDx Optic Nerve Fiber Analyzer which takes a detailed image of the optic nerve to assess the risk or advancement of glaucoma, which is a disease that slowly destroys the optic nerve.
Q&A with Dr. B.
Dr. Seth Bachelier Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Why are my eyes red?
Whether red eyes are a regular occurrence or an isolated issue, it is important to understand that red eyes are an inflammatory problem. Inflammation involves redness, swelling, warmth and in some cases pain and discomfort. The majority of red eyes are caused by a combination of allergies and/or dryness. If your eyes itch, it is likely allergies. That is really the ONLY symptom of allergies. Dryness is a little more complex. Dry eyes cause burning, stinging, excess tearing, a foreign body sensation, discomfort during blinking and in some cases there can be blurry vision. While allergies and dryness are common and fairly easy to manage, eyes that get red very quickly could indicate a more serious issue. Eyes that get very red within 24 hours could be a sign of infection or an abrasion. Light sensitivity and (moderate to severe) pain often located on or behind the eye are signs that the surface of the eye is compromised. While these conditions are more rare, they require quick attention because infections on the front surface of the eye can become a major issue in a short period of time. Regardless if you know what the reason for your redness is, I ALWAYS recommend consulting your eye doctor to confirm what the problem is because there are a lot of possibilities that have a wide range of consequences.
