Question: Sensitive Eyes?

Roses - Sat May 24, 2003 4:21 pm

My eyes are dry and Itchy, it has been so for the past 2 months. Got slightly worse these few days and now the lower half of my eye ball is red. What could be possibly wrong? Don't seems like sore eyes which is usually red and sore.

It could be a simple allergy. Ofcourse too much Itching and rubbing of your eyeballs will eventually lead to their redness.
