My son is 20 months old. For last 3/4 days, I have noticed that some part of the left corner of his right eye has turned red. Though he didn’t show any sign of pain or itchiness or sleeping problem, the reddish shade of his eye remains without any change. Please advise me on what to do now.

Hello and thank you for using our service

We understand your concern about your son’s symptoms of having redness on the corner of his eyes, am I right? We will try to assist you with this matter

For your information, redness of the eye can be caused by certain conditions such as:

  • Subconjunctival bleeding
  • Conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctival layer)
  • Episcleritis (inflammation of the lining of the episclera)

It can also occur due to serious condition such as:

  • Acute glaucoma
  • Corneal ulcer
  • Uveitis

Therefore, I would strongly suggest to speak with our doctor via teleconsultation so that our doctor can assess and provide further advice on this matter

I hope this explanation was able to assist you. If you have any other enquiries, do let us know. Thank you
