== == The eye has been irritated by something. Redness is a sign of a unhappy eye, one that has been exposed to too much of something, such as dust, wind, lack of sleep, or too much alcohol drinking. Other causes could be exposure to welding flash, chemical fumes, or even harsh shampoo or soap. Treatment is simple.........warm water bath of the eye, with repeated applications of warm water. Cover the eye, and rest in a dark place, with BOTH eyes closed for an hour at least. Conjunctivitis is the technical term for red eyes. It can also be the result of allerfies, a virus like a cold, or caused by a bacteria like "Red Eye," an irritation or injury, or a serious infection. If you wear contacts remove them until the condition is entirely cleared up. If you normally wear eye makeup, discontinue and discard it. I would use eye drops rather than plain water. Often children bring bacterial "Red Eye" home from school with them. It is spread by hand contact, and can effect all members of the family. Red eye is characterized by redness and a discharge from the eye. Your family doctor can treat Red Eye with mild antibiotic drops. If the condition persists more than 1 day, or you have pain, or the eye tears excessively or is sensitive to light, or the redness is growing worse, I would see an optometrist ASAP. Don't trust your family doctor to treat eye conditions. I did, and almost lost an eye because he mis-diagnosed a serious eye infection as "just irritation from your contacts."
