Red eye – beware

* aversion of the eyes to light
* blurred vision
* a single red eye (two red eyes is more suggestive of conjunctivitis)

“These symptoms almost always indicate serious acute eye disease rather than conjunctivitis, the researchers say.”

Apparently hospitals are concerned there are too many misdiagnosed eye conditions at the moment and that doctors and the general public need to look out for these warning signs of acute eye disease. The dust and matter blowing around us in the dry weather are giving most of us sore eyes and then there is seasonal conjunctivitis. But even then we need to make sure we are treated properly for that. The article gives some useful pointers.
