    Default WHY does just ONE eye itch???

    I can't figure this out, but in the evening, one eye itches like crazy!

    I can't figure out what causes it and it is SUPER annoying. If it was some kind of allergy, wouldn't they both itch???

    Is it just itch, or does it feel like something is in there like dirt? Get an eye exam and make sure you don't need glasses or a prescription change. And you can get an infection in one eye.

    I have allergies and I get an itchy nose but it's always only the left side never the right.

    Sounds like a visit to an Ophthalmologist might be in order. ASAP.

    In my case it was b/c I had a sinus infection on the one side.

    I would go to the ophthalmologist.

    Last time this happened to me, it was because I'd gotten a tiny sliver of clear, acrylic fake nail stuck in there. This happened as a result of my misguided attempt to use cuticle trimmers to pry them off myself at home instead of taking the time to go into a salon like a normal person.

    Possibly you don't have fake nail in your eye, but regardless, it's always best to get eye issues checked out promptly.

    Mine twitches when I'm tired. And which side twitches seems totally random.
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    It's been going on for a couple of years, so I'm thinking it's probably (hopefully!) not necessary to see an eye doctor, but I can't figure out what kind of allergen would only bother one eye.

    Could it be some kind of underlying infection or irritation? I have blepharitis and it really only bothers my left eye.
