Are You Seeing Red?

Bloodshot Eyes: they’re unpleasant
to look at and even more irksome to
suffer through.
What causes this sudden change
in color – and the occasional itchy
or watery sensation – are actually
the tiny blood vessels under the
eye’s surface, which get dilated or
inflamed by external irritation.
While not harmful, bloodshot
eyes are an irritating experience
for many. Luckily, most home or
over-the-counter treatments work
well at treating the irritation. But
what about those cases where home
or pharmacy remedies just won’t
do? What happens if the redness
or discomfort outlasts the home
treatment?
That’s where the advice of a
dedicated eye care professional
can help. Only a proper licensed
eye doctor can provide medical
diagnosis
and
prescription
medication to combat a more severe
case of red eyes.

To find out if you need to seek
out the help of an Ophthalmologist,
consider these points:
• You have bloodshot eyes and are
seeping with encrusted mucous.
(In this case, an infection may be
present.)
• You are experiencing pain or
tenderness in or around the eyes.
• You have developed an unusual
sensitivity to light.
• You have a fever or overall sickness.
• You or your loved ones have
been exposed to pink eye
(conjunctivitis.)
Next time you have bloodshot eyes,
take a moment to consider whether
the symptoms are more severe than
usual. While many physicians can
diagnose eye infections, only your
Ophthalmologist has the capability
for a more detailed evaluation.

Dr. Stephen H. Uretsky is a board-certified ophthalmologist with 30 years
of practice experience who specializes in comprehensive eye care. Coastal
