Although you can find over-the-counter treatments for red eyes, like calming eye drops. We do not recommend using these before receiving a professional diagnosis, as they can worsen the condition and prevent you from seeking the medical care you actually need. Also, some causes of red eyes are more serious than others. Without immediate medial attention, these serious causes of red eyes can lead to permanent vision damage or loss. It is especially important to see an eye doctor right away, when the onset of red eyes occurs quickly and when you also experience discomfort or blurred vision.
How We Diagnose and Treat Red Eyes
During your red eye exam, our eye doctor will perform a comprehensive physical evaluation of your eyes and discuss any other symptoms you are experiencing to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. Red eye treatment depends on the diagnosed underlying cause. Common treatments for red eye include medicated eye drops, lifestyle adjustments, antibiotics, allergy medications and various dry eye therapies.
