My eyes are red, watery, and itchy. I have a feeling I have sand in my eyes. The most irritating area is the tear ducts. Please, help me. I am just using red eye relief, but it does not help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Do you, by any chance, have a feeling that when you blink, you feel a pricking or pressure sensation on the inner side of your right eye? Do you also do a lot of outdoor activities like hiking or do you go out in the sun a lot?
From the photos you have sent me (attachment removed to protect patient identity), I feel like you have developed a condition called an inflamed pinguecula. This condition will need steroid eyedrops for relief, although they are not available over the counter. Pingueculas are benign nodules that grow in the conjunctiva of active people who are out in the sun a lot, also people who are exposed to a lot of wind and dust.
So, preventive measures you can take immediately are as follows.
Hope you get well soon.
