Eye irritation has many possible causes. A doctor can treat almost all of them quickly with early detection and intervention. Some causes may be due to an underlying disease or disorder of the entire body, in which case they may be accompanied by other symptoms that are characteristic of the disorder.
The following conditions may include eye irritation among their symptoms, but the presence of eye irritation should not lead you to conclude that you have a more serious disorder. You should not attempt to diagnose yourself with a medical condition, even if your symptoms match the characteristics of a certain disorder. If your symptoms concern you, the best thing to do is to seek medical advice. In order to understand your symptoms and reach a diagnosis, your doctor will consider your medical history, which symptoms you have, and the results of an ophthalmologic examination and laboratory tests.
