  • Whats the appearance of your eyes likes? (With pics)

    Iíve been wanting to make this post for a long time. Iíve never met another person with dry eyes face to face, and so Iíve always wondered what other people on this forums eyes look like. Are they red, white, pinkish, very veiny etc. It would great if you could provide a picture!

      Itís funny that you say that because with my eyes there is a direct correlation between redness and dryness. The dryer my eyes feel, the redder they normally look! Itís weird how everyoneís eyes are different

        Why don't you start with your own eye pics?

          My eyes are totally veiny, they always look red. I try to hide them with my prescription tinted glasses. I am 32 and my eyes started to be veiny and red with contact lense use, then had been covered with veins due to a doctor's vasoconstrictor prescription for my red eyes that I hadnt known it was harmful and causes rebound redness and permanent veins.. After 4 days usage of vasoconstrictor drops my eyes developed more veins and pingueculas (both temporal and nasal side). I will share a photo of my eyes.

              chuto thank you so much for your response I really appreciate you uploading pictures. Yes I agree your eyes are very veiny, my mum has pingueculas and looks similar to your eyes. Does the redness/veins die down if your eyes feel less dry and moist?

                Here are some pics of my eyes taken right now - theses were taken at 11 am so itís likely that they will get redder in evening

                  SirDryEye my veins never subside or fade even when I feel my eyes more moist and less dry. The veins are permanent and as I said they are mainly caused by tetryzoline based vasoconstrictor eye drop.

                    my eyes are just like chutos. except that the sclera is red. also large red irritation spots periodically appear/disappear all over the eye surface throughout the day.

                        Mine is the same as you. It always has that minimum light purple colour

                          Mine almost never look bad, but they feel like death seemingly for no reason. The loss of lower lashes bums me out.

                          EDIT: second pic is 3 months after the injury, insane pain levels, drops every 5 minutes, couldnít walk without eye pain (wind). Can barely tell anythingís wrong.

                            I am pretty shocked at all your eye pictures, mine look so much worse, they are most of the time red/pink depending on the time of day (red first thing in the morning, light pink during the day, back to red in the evening).

                            Most of the doctors I have seen have been very dismissive, they say my symptoms don't match what my eyes look like, they don't look that red?

                            It is so frustrating that pain cannot be measured by a machine.

                              i guess the thing to take away from this is that it differs person to person! Ultimately what really matters is the health and feeling of your eyes and not the appearance. Thank u all
