What causes tiny bumps in your eye?

It might be pingueculae, a discolored bump on the white of your eye. If that is the case, dryness, sunlight exposure or wind irritation may be the culprits. Artificial tears and sunglasses (to protect your eyes from sun and wind) are recommended. It may also be a good idea to have your eyes checked by an optometrist to rule out any threatening conditions.

What is calcium buildup behind the eye and will it cause problems?

to Calcium Build Up of the EyeI know from my experience calcium build up behind the eye will cause the eye to be very sore, red, watery and sometimes itchy. It feels like there is something there, depending how much there is. It's basically mountains of stuff that will cause the eye to also be dry. The reason why it waters is because it is trying to get rid of the calcium build up. This usually happens to people who have vision problems (like myself). It can surgically be removed, and it usually takes about a week to heal. Sometimes it can be healed with Polysporin for the Eye, and a fake tear drop called Refresh Luiquidgel or even Teargel. If it doesn't clear up with any of those items, go and see an eye specialist ASAP.

What causes your eyes to feel like they have a coating on them and your vision to blur and become hard to focus after a while?

Answer

Is this a common feeling you have or is it seasonal? Some of it could be dry eye related... meaning your eyes arent lubricating properly and the bit that they DO lubricate is thick, and might make you feel like you're having to focus thru a fog or a haze. Usually however, I'd say it's allergies. Depending on where you're located and what types of allergies you have - that may be wreaking havoc on your poor little eyes. There are some really good lubricating drops you can purchase over the counter that may help with that, but it's my hunch that to really FIX the problem, you should probably see your Optometrist or Opthamologist so they can prescribe you a drop that will not only fix whatever irritation you might be having, but stimulate natural tear production too.

Hope that helped! Cindy

Do you cry a lot? If you cry, the salt in the tears may irritate your eyes. I have this problem, and when I cry, it becomes worse. This could also be astygmatism. I do not know how to spell astygmatism, but it can be corrrected with glasses or contacts.

What care should a patient receive after photocoagulation therapy on a detached retina?

Patients who have had photocoagulation therapy for retinal detachment are asked to have a friend or family member drive them home after the procedure. The reason for this precaution is that the eye medication used to dilate the pupil of the patient's eye will make it difficult for them to see to drive and can cause uncomfortable photosensitivity, requiring dark glasses.

Once home, the patient should rest. They will have instructions to resume their regular medicines, except eye drops in the eye that had the photocoagulation. They can eat, but the meal should be kept light. Pain relievers may be required. After surgery an eye patch will have been applied to the affected eye. This should be worn until the physician takes it off at the follow up appointment, usually the next day. There will need to be care of the patch to keep it clean and dry, the instructions will be provided by your doctor or his staff. You may be prescribed eye drops that you will be instructed to use. The shield over the eye patch must be worn at night during sleep and may be required during the day as well. Some doctors will allow the patch off during the day if glasses are worn to prevent injury while the patch and shield are off.

What is retinal detachment?

Retinal detachment is when the retina, the part of the back of the eye which contains numerous blood vesses, because detached from the wall of the eyeball. It can be serious and can lead to blindness if left untreated. It is most commonly caused by high blood pressure. The high blood pressure causes pockets to form between the retina and the other lays of tissues in the eye. Over time, the suction between the wall of the eye and retina is gone and the retina slowly detaches from the eye. It is not usually noticed until the retina is actually detaching from the eye. During this time you may see blurriness, floaters or blindness. Fortunatly, the retina can be surgically reattached to the eye and vision can be restored if treated as soon as possible.

What causes redness in the whites of the eyes?

The redness in the whites of the eyes is caused by an infection. This infection could have been transmitted to the eye through air, water or anything else that comes into contact with the eye. Generally redness in the whites of the eyes indicates that the person has contracted 'conjunctivitis'. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the eye which causes redness and swelling to the normal areas of the eye because of an eye infection. A person with redness in their eyes should see a doctor so that the conjunctivitis can be treated and not spread to all parts of the eye. Rendness of the eye may also be caused my irritation. A foreign body in the eye or an allergy. If you think they're may be a something in your eye- don't poke around to remove it- see your Optometrist or Doctor. If you get soap or shampoo in your eye, rinse the eye with cool clean water. If irritation continues- see an Optometrist or Doctor. Lastly- irritation can be cuased by contact lenses. If they are the wrong type or size lenses or you are using incorrect solutions the eye may become red and sore. I cannot stress enough how important it is to use contact lenses responsibly. Always follow the advice given by your Optometrist.

Short answer, no. Long answer, kinda? When you first get them, it takes time to get accustom to wearing them. During that time, your eyes will encounter some irritation, but not pain. The temporary irritation is well worth the benefits.

Are possible retinal detachment it's the weekend what steps should you take until you can see a doctor?

Immediately contact a retinal specialist. Look in the phone book for your area, or call your optometrist or opthamologist or regular doctor. Retinal specialists have "after hours" answering services who will contact them with your name, number and symptoms. The "on call" opthamologist will call you back and set up a time, either within a few hours or the next day, for you to come in for a thorough retina exam.

Because the retina peels like wallpaper, it's very diffidcult to reattach it. There is no glue...but, there are at least 3 other possible routes to get it reattached and anchored. if it peels up to and over the macula, or center of the eye, possible loss of central vision will occur once the retina is reattached.

So! Time is precious if you want the least amount of vision loss and the least invasive reattachment procedure.

Read all you can about retina detachment on the internet.

Good luck!

How can you prevent the pain and tearing in your eyes caused by wearing contacts?

If you have pain in your eyes from wearing contact lenses you should remove them immediately and make an appointment with your Optometrist. You can avoid pain and irritation by doing the following: Make sure that you are wearing the correct lens type- Contact lenses come in many different shapes and sizes. The wrong lens may irritate the eye and cause pain. The excess tears are cause by the eye trying to flush the lens out of your eye. Make sure that the lens isn't inside out! This will often cause irritation to the eye

Ensure that the lenses are kept clean- Dust or dirt on the lenses will irritate the eyes and a build up of nasty germs can do alot of damage. Around 70% of the bacteria found on contact lenses is feacal in origin! Use the right solutions- Like lenses, solutions come in many different varieties. Some contain peroxide and if used incorrectly can do serious damage to your eyes. Always check with your Optometrist before buying solutions. Make sure the lens isn't torn or broken- A slight tear in the lens can be very uncomfortable. you're eyes may water and become inflamed. If when yoyu remove the lens you can see that it has split or broken- see your Optometrist immediately. Do not try to remove any pieces of lens from your eye. Most importantly though, always follow the advice given by your Optometrist- your eyes are too precious to mess around with!

Why does grey come in corner of your eyes?

Your question is somewhat ambiguous. I don't know for certain if you are seeing grey in the corner of your visual field, or if you have seen in a mirror that there is something grey in the corner of your eyes. In the former case, this might be an early symptom of a serious condition such as retinal detachment or cataracts; if so, you should consult an optometrist and get a medical diagnosis. If you have just seen some gray substance collected in the corner of your eyes, that is probably dried mucus, which is not particularly unusual although if the quantity is abnormally great, it might be the result of an allergy of some kind, probably to pollen.

What causes a tiny bump in the corner of the whites of someone's eye?

It sounds like you are describing a pinguecula and it is caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. (ie-spending too much time outdoors without wearing sunglasses) We see this more commonly in the southwest region of the USA and for some reason Hispanics tend to develop them more rapidly than caucasians.

There is no form of treatment unless it progresses to a pterygium. As the pterygium grows and gets close to the center of your vision, it can be removed with a surgery. But it's always best to never let it get to this point.

I recommend looking these two things up on Google pictures and you will have motivation to wear sunglasses outside to prevent the pinguecula from converting into a pterygium.
