What is the treatment for irritation in left eye? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I recently developed minor irriation in my left eye
there is no redness
but lot of itching
i drive to office by bike , not sure it is because of dust
Can you specify the time since when you have this itching?
nearly 2 weeks
i used Referesh tears drops, it was ok for few days
Are you watering from the eye?
I mean is your eye profusely watering?
No not much
Itching is more on the eye lids
If you are excessively watering compared to the other eye
it only itches
while rubbing it will be good
If it is just itching, then you might be suffering from a viral condition
after some time burning sensation.. then it will be normal for at least 6 hrs like that
However it is difficult to differentiate allergic conjuctivities from viral conjuctivities
without looking in to your eye.
It is important we differentiate it, because allergic condition will need antiallergen such as azelastine eye drops
while viral condition would resolve.
Therefore I suggest you see an ophthalmologist
to identify the real cause of this problem.
He/she can accordingly write you the most suited eye drops.
Have you followed?
Do you have any questions?
any suggestion to use eye drops for time being
if itching persists will consult a doctor
Azelastine drops can improve the itching; but that wouldn't cure your condition.
It would only mask your symptoms and
may make it difficult for your doctor to differentiate the problem.
Therefore it is better to see a doctor first and then start using this drops.
Hope you understand what I mean?
Do you have any other query?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
