You rub your left eye. Five minutes later, you rub it again. Pretty soon, you are pawing your peeper like a mutt with an itch he can’t reach. A look in the mirror reveals that the white of your eye has turned a flamboyant scarlet. What gives? Almost anything, unfortunately. Your eyes can be irritated by foreign matter, from a speck of dust to an errant fleck of mascara. They may itch or burn, irritated by allergies, dirty contact lenses, or too many hours spent unblinking in front of your computer. Maybe you got soaked in the eye with a tennis ball or lightly thwacked with your niece’s or nephew’s plastic Power Ranger. Or, for one reason or another, your eyes may not produce enough tears, leading to the stinging burning, and grittiness of dry eye. You may even have developed conjunctivitis also called pinkeye, a bacterial or viral infection of the membrane that lines the eyelid and covers the eyeball. Or maybe you have a sty, an infection of one of the oil glands in the eyelid. Other possible causes of eye pain include blepharitis, which is an infection of the eyelids, and inflammation caused by allergy. Either of these can turn your baby blues or browns into red, tender puffs. Here are some tips that you can consider to adopt for pain-relief.
