  • Why do my eyes hurt?

    Good evening and thank you for the question. This is extremely difficult to diagnose without a complete eye exam. Yes, it could be as simple as dry eye, or it could be something much more serious such as optic neuritis. You could certainly start with over-the-counter lubricant eye drops, but if the pain doesn’t resolve quickly, I would not wait to see an ophthalmologist. Jeevan Mathura, Jr., MD READ MORE

    Greetings! It could take weeks to months and could even be longer should your mother have diabetes, for example, and develop some type of complication such as macular edema. READ MORE
