Hello, My eyes have been very irritated lately. I went to E.R. they put numbing drops and antibiotics in them and that helped a few days. Then went to eye doctor and he said all was well. The hurt really bad in the corners and feel like trash or somethings in them around the corner and the bottom of my eyes. It alternates and then sometimes happens at same time. I have tried rinsing them no relief, eye drops and still no relief. I even have pain in my eyes like around the white part something is wrong please help. No excessive tearing..just irritation and pain. I have even taken allergy medications nothing at all.

It s kinda like a spaghetti string that start on one side of my eyeball and it peels across the bottom to the other side. I can feel it peeling off of something but I just can t tell what. It really happens on a daily basis and I can t help but to peel it off because when it comes it irritates my eye and I can feel it in there. I really hope I m not making it worse or going blind.

My newborn (23 days) has a red ring (Blood?) that looks like it is directly behind his left Iris. Kind of like a shadow behind it. Doctor 2 weeks ago said he didn t see anything.. but will be going back to doctors again tomorrow, but very concerned today. Otherwise very healthy delivery and overall health. Eating and pooping and peeing fine. Thank you.

I have a tiny white spot on the bottom of my iris, sometimes its painful, there is reddness around it. Sometimes they go away and then come back in another area. My eye has been really dry when I wake up in the morning and this is when it is the reddest. Nothing is wrong with my vision.
