Eye pain, referred to as ophthalmalgia in medical terms, is common and usually mild. Most often, the pain disappears without medicine or treatment. However, eye pain can be annoying and an indication of infection. In some cases, it may cause loss of vision.
So, what causes eye pain, and how can you deal with it?
Causes of Eye Pain
The most common cause of eye pain is simply having something in your eye, such as dust and makeup. A foreign object in the eyes can irritate them and lead to pain and redness.
Your eyes can get infections from bacteria, fungi, or viruses. Eye infections can occur in different parts of the eye. Two common eye infections are conjunctivitis (pink eye) and sty (a bump on the eyelid).
Symptoms of eye infections may include redness, itching, swelling, discharge, pain, or problems with vision.
Apart from infections, allergies and autoimmune disorders can also cause eye inflammation. Common eye inflammation includes optic neuritis, sinusitis, and iritis.
Contact Lens Irritation
Wearing contact lenses for a long time or without proper disinfection can irritate the eyes and cause pain.
Chemical burns, flashes, and impacts can damage the eye structure. When this kind of eye pain occurs, emergency medical services are required.
Unfortunately, a common side effect of migraine attacks is eye pain.
How to Relieve Eye Pain?
The treatment for eye pain depends on the cause. The most common ones include:
If the eye pain appears mild and shows no redness or swelling, the best way is to rest. Staring at a screen or television can cause eyestrain, and rest can ease the pain. When there are foreign irritants in the eyes, flushing your eyes with water or saline will also help.
If you have to wear lenses, glasses are better than contacts because the former allows your corneas to heal.
A warm compress can help with eye pain caused by blepharitis or a sty by clearing the clogged oil gland or hair follicle.
Common medications for eye pain include antibiotics, eye drops, antihistamines, and pain relievers. However, always consult a doctor before taking any medications.
Surgery is rare for eye pain. Only those with severe damage or conditions need it.
