Red eye with blurry vision with some yellow discharge

Hi, what does it mean if both eyes are red on the eye itself and around it, very blurry vision (on the one side more than the other), light and air bother it, a more white but still some yellow colouring film/puss and or crusty thing is coming from it and it continues to leak something, extreme soreness, burning, itching and a bit swollen.

Hi I m 24 years old I got a red eye due to inflammation. I have been to the doctor twice this year. They give me antibiotic eye drops for 5-7 days. The redness was gone for 3 months and it came back again so I went to different doctor and gave me the same drop. They said that one of the cause of this inflammatory was sunlight. I feel no pain in my eye, no blurry vision its just red. My question is there anything else that I can do to make this red eye going back forever? or is there any chance that I have something wrong with my body? What are those problems? Thank you!

I just went to my eye Dr. My eyes are bright red & really blood shot. No discharge not itching. I have allegeries also. Have been to a specialist & have had 2 series in my life of shots. This week was really bad in Iowa for dust blowing. Sunday my eyes turned like this. I do work in a Optical Office too. She asked me if any glands in my neck had swollen said yes. Thinks I have Viral Eye infection told me to go home cold compress 4× a day for 15 mins & wash out eye every hour with refresh. I will be contagious for how long ? What do you think if redness doesn t go away should I see my medical Dr. ?

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?

I have angioedema, however, the redness, itching and discomfort I have been experiencing for the past week is growing worse and is only located on the outsides of both underarms. I take doxepin for the angioedema. I have been using three new prescription eye drops for cataract pre/post op: 1. Gatifloxacin 2. Lotemax and 3. Prolensa (my next op is 6/30/14 for my right eye). This new condition only began after my first cataract surgery on 6/16/14 and kept me awake most of last night. I am using neosporone on both sites. Thank you for any information you might offer. CW
