Itchy Eyes

I have found out that most of the time I relieve my itchy eyes by drinking a glass or two of water. I started doing this because my father had the same problem and constantly took eye drops, which offered only temporary relief. I suggested that he drink more water and it worked for him. So, when I was struck with the same problem, I tried it and it works for me all the time.

Itchy Eyes

I've been getting itchy eyes in the corners for some years. My eyelids turned black now because of these itchy eyes. When i consulted doctors they said its caused by an allergy. I have tried prescribed different eye drops as medication. My faith is in Jesus Christ now because everything is possible to Him.

My itchy eyes

im 12,and yesterday when i woke up my eyes were terribly itchy.I have allergies but never have had eye allergies.I looked it up,and i dont have symptoms of pink eye but they are so itchy and burn like a bunch of needles poking my eye.Today however,after trying a bunch of treatment and eyedrops,they are even worse!It hurts especially in the corner of my eye.And im not allergic to any pets and no one has had pink eye or a cold recently in my family or at school.Im going to a doctor today,and hopefully they will figure it out and give me medication that will actually work!I cant imagine having eye allergies for the rest of my life i have hade them for 2 days and it driving me crazy!!And ive never had any problems with eye allergies and i dont have bad vision...????
