My step-dad occasionally has had what seems to be a weird problem with his eyelids. They sometimes stick shut. It's like they don't work properly at times and it's hard for him to open them. Also, he sometimes has gooey eyes and they sometimes feel irritated and burning like when you have allergies. Do you think this could be due to an allergy? He does take a few different medications so it could be a side affect of the medicine. Anyone ever heard of this sort of thing happening at all?

  • I posted my own eye symptoms a bit ago- hoping I'd get a response but seeing that you posted this a whopping 5 years ago, and no one replied.. presumably your step-dad has found adequate treatment for his condition and didn't rely on the "OurHealth" community for answers.

    I have a similar condition (extreme eye pain, cornea abrasions, severe sensitivity to all light, lids become glued to the eyeball(s) etc. so if you/ your step-dad knows what it is (or how to treat) DO TELL!
