Redness in eyes - self-conscious

Last year, my eyes would make a clicking noise. My sclera (white part of eyes) was white around a year ago. Then I developed an allergic reaction. What’s coincidental, is the fact that I first had my allergic reactions and then my eyes were itching on a daily basis and were red. When I went to the opticians she said that debris has built up, which meant I had to clean my eyes with wipes. I thought the redness and itchiness would go away. But it didn’t. Then I went to the doctors and the nurse said, my eye glands are blocked which means I have to warm compress it everyday and clean my eyelashes. She also said if I do that the redness would go away. Unfortunately it’s been 5 months and the redness is visible on both of the corners of my eyes. It makes me REALLY self conscious because I feel as if I can’t make eye contact with people. I feel as if it is to do with my allergic reactions. It’s makes me self conscious to even see myself in the mirror. Eye drops don’t help. She said that I have dry eyes. Also, my eye lashes fall out. I don’t want to pester the doctors.

You could try something like optrex for dry eyes it's kinda expensive but works quite well when I was suffering with hayfever. What are you allergic to exactly ? Another thing I would suggest is to get some kind of protective covering for your eyes like sunglasses or clear glasses - something that will stop you from rubbing your eyes. Other than that is there any chance you can find another optician and get a 2nd opinion ?

Thank you for your response. I brought Optrex, but it says at the back of the package that if I am using another eye drop I can’t use optrex and that I have to consult an optician. I’m not specifically allergic to anything, but it’s like I can go days without having an allergy to having it everyday. (hives) so it can’t be pin pointed. I don’t rub my eyes at all! I know it will do more harm than good. I guess so, but doctors tend to say the same things. Thank you for your answer though, I appreciate it.
