Eyes have suddenly turned red and it is itching .It hurts to keep then open too . What can be done ?
Use an antibiotic lubricating eye drop, mostly, ciprofloxacin or moxifloxacin eye drops and in case of children, either ciprofloxacin or tobramycin eye drops. They might be because of irritants considering the pollution levels in the city.
But if associated with persistent pain or increased frequency of such problems or fever or excessive watering of the eye, or severe congestion of eye, it is best to consult an ophthalmologist regarding the issue.
