For 2 months now, I have had very red eyes, and if i pull my lower lid down, on the actual lid its bright red, and then between the borrom of the lid and my eye is a dark pinkish colour that is a bit sticky and is also a bit on my eye ball. It is like this on both of my eyes, but more on my left.

In December last year ago, so about 6 weeks ago, after having this problemf or about 3 weeks, i decided to go for an eye exam. The optician said i had a small infection in my right eye, and told me to go to the doctors and get some gel to put in it and it should clear up within a month. So as time went on, i noticed it seemed to get worse, and my eyes sometimes seemed a bit blurry in the mornings. But then it started to get weird. One day i would wake up and my left eye would be the really sticky eye that is stinging and sore, and then a few days later it would be my right for a day or 2. This is really worrying me, as its been liek this swapping pain in each eye for 4 weeks now, and it doesnt seemed to have gone at all. I went back to the doctors 3 weeks ago and they prescribed me some other stuff but that didnt help at all it just seemed to irratate it more.

I don't have any conditions liek diabeties or high blood pressure, and I am going for another visit to the Opticians next week as I am very concerned. Does anyone have any idea what this is?

  • I have had almost the same thing and went to urgentcare where theydiagnosed me with eye herpes. Was treated with eyedrops and justcompleted treatment and so far am symptom free. Wondering if we haveany underlying problems we are not aware of yet?
