Latest Eyesight News
WEDNESDAY, Sept. 26, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Your eyes are subject to a wide variety of health conditions, from minor annoyances to serious chronic diseases and even cancer.
While it's never a good idea to ignore any change in your vision or in the appearance of your eyes, call your doctor right away if you experience the following warning signs.
More serious signs are redness that spreads and rapid swelling. Conjunctivitis is a contagious infection that can cause a discharge and turn the whites of your eyes pink or red. You may need antibiotics. Redness, blurry vision and the sensation of a grain of sand in your eye could be from debris lodged under a lid or a more serious scratched cornea.
And, of course, protect your vision with an annual eye exam, including tests that can uncover problems early on, before you see any signs.
