If your eye looks red and irritated, it could be due to a condition called episcleritis. Episcleritis is a cause of eye redness but is not usually serious or harmful. It can go away by itself but there are various treatments available, as well as options
to help alleviate symptoms.
If your eye is also very painful and you can’t see properly, you may have a rare condition called scleritis. This can affect your vision and sometimes even cause permanent eye damage if not treated. Visit your optometrist as soon as possible if your eye feels painful and appears red. We can detect or rule out more serious conditions and help you with any symptoms.
