      Red Eyes

      I get bloodshot eyes frequently and I've tried many remedies already but they are always red. After waking up in the mornings or using the computer for over 30minutes they become seriously red and scratchy. I'm starting to think there is a problem with my tear duct because how come people can use computers for way longer than 30mins and still have perfectly normal, white eyes and mine looks like something out of a cartoon?

      Any thoughts?

      Dry Eyes. There are many different eye drops out there, but not all of them work the same.
      My favorite was Soothe, but they went out of business :/
      Now I just use whichever samples my hubby has laying around (he's an Ophthalmologist).

      Can you cry? Sometimes people DO have obstructed tear ducts. I don't know much about the business, but I seem to recall artificial ducts can be implanted. I'll have to ask hubby about that.
      But it sounds like dry eyes to me. I have had that problem for over a decade.
      Getting a humidifier could help if the air in your room is dry. Staying away from irritants like cigarette smoke could help too.
      Do you have allergies? That could be another cause...

      The problem is that everytime I use eye drops, it doesn't help reduce the redness or the discomfort one bit. I do not use the computer excessively,I blink regularly, I stay hydrated and I don't drink alcohol or smoke. What is wrong with those eyes?!

      Maybe you haven't found the right eye drop for you. Many of them don't do a thing for me. It took lots of trial and error to find one that worked consistently.
      If it's a constant bother, make an appointment with an eye doctor. Maybe something else is going on.

      The issue is that whenever I use eye falls, it doesn't help decrease the inflammation or the pain one bit. I do not use the pc extremely,I flicker consistently, I consume plenty of water and I don't consume liquor or smoking.

      Since you revived the thread, let me just say that I've managed to acquire a product that actually treats red eyes very well.
