If you’re experiencing eye discomfort, consulting with a doctor can help you get to the root of the problem.

Common Questions About Eye Discomfort

How do I know if I have a stye?

A stye is a red, tender bump on the edge of your eyelid that is typically caused by a bacterial infection. Symptoms may include redness, swelling, pain and tenderness, eyelid irritation, and discharge. A healthcare provider can help make a definitive diagnosis.

What does pink eye look like?

Pink eye (or conjunctivitis) is an inflammation of the thin, clear tissue that lines the inside of the eyelid and covers the white part of the eye. It’s characterized by redness and may have a sticky or watery discharge. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

How can I get my eyes to stop itching?

There are several ways to find relief from itchy eyes. One option is eye drops that can help soothe dry, itchy eyes caused by allergies or environmental irritants. Applying a cold compress to the eyes for a few minutes can also help to reduce inflammation and relieve itching.

If allergies are the cause of your itchy eyes, be sure to avoid allergens such as pollen, dust, or pet dander. Additionally, taking breaks from screens can help — as eye strain can contribute to itching.

Why are my eyes burning?

Burning eyes can be caused by a variety of factors. Exposure to irritants such as smoke or polluted air can cause your eyes to feel like they are burning. Allergies to pollen, dust, or pet dander can cause burning eyes as well. Additionally, eye infections such as pink eye can lead to a burning sensation in the eye. Other factors that can contribute to burning eyes include dry eyes, fatigue, or prolonged computer use. If you’re experiencing persistent burning eyes, be sure to consult with a healthcare provider.

What can I do for dry eyes?

There are several ways to find relief from dry eyes. One of the most effective ways to alleviate dry eyes is to use over-the-counter artificial tears that can help to lubricate and moisturize the eyes. Taking frequent breaks from staring at screens and reducing eye strain can help as well.

In addition, using a humidifier to add moisture to the air — and staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water — can help as well. A healthcare professional can prescribe eye drops or other treatments to help alleviate dry eyes.

My eye won’t stop twitching. What should I do?

Eye twitching is usually a harmless condition that will resolve on its own. However, there are several things you can do to alleviate the twitching. One of the most effective ways to reduce eye twitching is to reduce stress by getting enough sleep, practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation, or taking breaks throughout the day to rest your eyes. Additionally, be sure to limit your intake of caffeine and alcohol. Also, try applying a warm compress to the affected eye as this can help to relax the muscles and alleviate twitching.

If your eye twitching persists or is accompanied by other symptoms such as vision changes or pain, be sure to consult with a healthcare provider.
