Conditions with symptom: 'misaligned eyes'
For the last four years ive had a white gooey stringy substance coming out of my eyes and my eyes are always bloodshot and sometimes swollen. Ive been to a doctor about it and she said she didnt know what it was so she pretty much told me to go away. But recently the problem has been getting worse. I was on holiday and around the 7th day my eyes started producing this substance, and my eyes became extremly irratated. I tried to use my finger to remove the gooey from my eyes but when I got it out of one eye more would be in the other, my eyes became completely red and the pain was unbearable and I was crying. Then my friend told me that a girl had been on this show with similar symptoms, but I cant find anyrthing about it on here. Im really worried incase I really damage my eyes im quite scared. Im going to the doctors as soon as possible to see if they will help me, but does anyone else have any idea what it could be? Please help!
Hi Im not sure if anyone has answered this but you should go to your gp and if they ignore you then go to another one because it may be nothing but at the same time it could be something. As there are many problems that can occur with one's eye's its best to follow it up. Not worth going blind now is it!
I'm 14 (so I'm guessing its a bit of an unusual age to get very watery eyes) but my eyes water with the slightest of wind, sunlight, when I lie on my side and even when applying moisturiser or face make up. But I think there's something wrong with my eyes, the shape of them are perfectly normal but I seem to have just a pink/red gap between my actual eyeball and the outer edge of my eye, like the opposite side to my tear duct, could this be why my eyes are so watery, if so is there anything I can do about it?
Hi!! I don't know you and I don't know what's wrong either but I'm fourteen and I have the exact same thing!! I don't know anyone else who has it and its killing me because there's nothing online about it. Your not alone, my eyes water like that too.
I am also 14, and I have exactly the same problem, my eyes have been watering since about last year. my eyes water all the time in all conditions even inside, when I'm at school I usually just use tissue to wipe away the water but it gets so annoying and gets in the way. I've been to the doctors and they have me eye drops that didnt help at all, they said it was because I wear make up but they water even when I don't. I went to the opticians and he told me that I don't blink all the way, I was very surprised as I thought I did, and I think I still do now, I hope it's just a thing that will pass over time.
I have always had watery eyes, I'm 17 now and still do.... They mainly water when; I look at other eyes, think about eyes, confrontation with people and just randomly sometimes :( Why???
Hi im 39 years of age i have bagus under my eyes there always puffy looking and would like to know if there is anyway i could get rid of them or even reduce them thanks
Hi, I recently had squint surgery done and I've noticed that my eye only looked straight on the day the surgery was done. Every time after that, especially after I've been on the computer for a while and straining my eyes, I notice my squint is still very obvious. But the doctor says she is quite happy with my alignment. Is it possible that somehow i am the only one who sees my eyes as being unaligned when I look in the mirror? I've also been taking pictures regularly and occasionally, my eyes look perfectly aligned and on other occasions,it looks horrible.Is it common for the eyes to drift back to its original position while its healing? Btw, It's almost a month since I had my surgery done.
My eyes water, plus i have sagging eyes, but i am only 13, it makes me look ugly and i really don't like it, how do i get rid of the sagging eyes and make myself look generally happier?
my dad got punched in the eye and now can only see bright lights whats happend?
my opticion says ive got wax in my eye glands and my eyes keep watering all the time wot can i do to stop them from watering. thankyou.
Hi my name is mathew and I have a really embarrassing problem with my eyes, the whites of my eyes go really red all the time they look like the devils eyes I have been to various eye specialists an they only seem to put it down to hayfever an give me medication for that but it never works. So can you please help me and give me a proper diagnosis and help me with my embarrassing illness. Thanks.
Haha but because I am young all people seem to fink is drugs!! I dont take them an havent in all my life, it really gets me down an depressed an feel like I cant look at anyone in the face :-(
Hi i am 61 years of age and i often get what i call red eye. It does look like i have a devils eye. When people ask me what have i done, i tell them i have been looking through key holes, and pass it off with a lough.
I caught a virus in my eyes about eight years ago and was left with no tears at all. I have had my tear ducts sealed shut. I use hypromelose drops which help a little and was prescribed Viscotears which I find too sticky. Has there been any developments in this area with regards to a cure? My eyes produce a white substance which is very embarassing and also my eyes are very uncomfortable all the time as they are dry. Have you any ideas or should I go back again to my doctors who don't seem to be able to help. Thank you.
I went to the hospital yesterday for a 2nd eye clinic appointment and because I had my eyes open they said it was just dry eyes. But on leaving the clinic my eyes clamped shut as I was going back to the car. I feel really depressed about this and feel fobbed off by the doctors. My question is this how can I get a diagnosis when they dont see me when I am at home and out of the house.Can I go private.
This the crux of the matter for those sufferers who do not present with the symptoms when visiting the doctor - because most of the triggers for BEB are situations like walking with lots of people around, reading, watching TV and particularly driving. The best solution is to get a friend or family member to video you driving using their mobile phone, and take this evidence ( of your eyelids closing) with you to the medic. He should then refer you to a Neurologist who will prescribe Botox injections if suitable. My son did this for me; I showed the consultant the video and he stated me on the injections straight away. They do help. Good luck.
It took me four years I figured it out on my on, told my reg. doctor, then I started going to eye clinic and just had my third Botox injections, I see a bit of change, but I now use two eye drop twice day that helps a lot, but it can't get in sun are my eyes shut tight, even with dark glasses, but I feel better knowing what it is and i will always have it, I'm 65 yrs old so I'm trying to be creative with hats double sunglasses. Best of luck, call all the eye doctors see if they have patients with this deseise . Hope I've been some help
I have constantly watery eyes causing blured vision, difficulty when driving and reading from my computer at work. My eyes are always blood shot and skin around them is dry and sore from the tears. Tried to rule out allergy myself, I have been to the doctors, opticians eventually the hospital and discharged with "dry eyes" after trying all sorts of drops. Saw my optician who was shocked they were no better yesterday but I was honest that I've pretty much gave up! I'm only 23! Emma
If you have tried all the drops, seen the Doc and the optician...and then to have the optician, in your words "shocked", I would be heading for the eye specialist end of story.. I am assuming the optician is the guy you go to to buy glasses and have eyes tested..?? There is another level of eye carers, they are specialist in their field.. Get Doc or optician, to give you a referral... I got rid of my watery eyes with systane, a eye drop from chemist, told to me by optometrist (optician), but you have said you have tried all types of drops....Dont play around with your eyes, get this looked at by a proper eye specialist, so don't give up Emma...
I have had dermatitis around my eyes and eye lid for te past 2 years.. It can get quite itchey and sometimes my eye lids swell and it is difficult for me to open my eyes. I wear contact lenses and have done for over ten years. Would the contact solution suddenly start irritating my eyes? I also wear make up but try to use natural products because of my sensitive eyes. I also try to use products on my skin that are not harsh like Simple. My GP gave a me a cream 2 years ago to help woh the dermatitis. It helps it go away for a few days, and then it flares up again. I am reluctant to go back to my GP as I feel he will just give me the same cream which only seems like a temporary measure. What can I do to help it go away?? Thanks, K
