- What are some basic facts about children's eye health?
What's the treatment if the whites of my eyes are red or yellow?
Dry eyes, irritants, and infections can all cause redness of the sclera. Most infections are caused by viruses, but there are bacterial causes as well that require antibiotic treatment. If the redness is caused by irritants (foreign objects rubbing the eye) or dryness, saline eyedrops can help.
What can cause me to feel like something is in my eye all the time?
Gary Hirshfield, MD, Ophthalmology, answered on behalf of American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeSmartI would recommend that you see an ophthalmologist as soon as possible for this problem. Common causes for a symptom like this are an eyelash or foreign body in the eye, but it could also be a viral, bacterial or fungal infection in the cornea. Corneal problems such as erosions or scratches can also cause this symptom.
