I have been wearing contact lenses since my teens. To be honest, I don’t take care of my eyes carefully and tend to nap in my lenses, not replace them often enough. My eyes are often irritated but the redness/pus goes away eventually with eyedrops. For the past 2 days, the irritation seems to be getting worse. When I am in contact with light, my eyes get red, and there is a burning, painful sensation. I have tried eyedrops but the irritation is still there. Is this time different from the previous irritations? Do I need to see an eye doctor?
My mother’s sight is blurry and she complains that objects she sees are shadowy and grey. She has been far sighted for more than 10 years. It was only during these three months that she’s been complaining about her blurry eyesight although she is wearing glasses. Does it mean her hypermetropia is getting more serious? Would changing the lenses help?
I often get eye styes, perhaps once every 3-4 months. I wear eye makeup but I often remove it properly and my contact lenses are changed regularly too. What could be the reason behind the frequent eye styes?
I have heard that cataracts cannot recur. However, my mother complains about having blurry vision after surgery. What is the explanation for this?
My girlfriend has an allergy that affects her eyes. In a dusty room, for example, her eyes would turn red. She has to use eye drops when it happens. I want to know, what condition is this? Is it dangerous and curable? Would there be any further complication if she leaves it untreated?

I’ve always had dry eyes and bring eye drops out with me regularly. However, for the past few days, my eyes feel extra dry and I have a headache all the time. Is my headache and my eye condition related? Are there any ways to fix dry eyes for good or do i need to keep using eye drops?
My 4 year old daughter looks like she has a lazy eye. We noticed this because she tends to lay her head down on one side when she reads. How do I know when is the right time to bring her to see an eye specialist? Or should I wait and see if her condition gets better?
My son is 19 years old. He is nearsighted. We recently noticed the presence of white dots in his right pupil. He claims it doesn’t hurt but his eye is itchier than usual and he rubs it often. Do I need to take him to an eye specialist?
My child is 14 years old and she wants to try out contact lenses instead of wearing glasses to school. I am worried about it because of her age. What is the age you would recommend for someone to start wearing contact lenses? Is it safe for her?
