There can be many reasons why you’re suffering from itchy red eyes. For some people it may be allergies or exposure to dust or pets in your home. In other cases, it may be a result of being around smoke or other environmental irritants. One common cause of itchy eyes that routinely is misdiagnosed is meibomian gland disease. There are special glands within our eyelids that secrete oil to keep our blinks lubricated. When these glands become clogged, our eye and eyelids rub creating friction which we perceive as itchy eyes. Many times, this condition is linked to the use of digital devices.
