    I like that you talked about how you should consider having your eyes checked if your eyes are painful or irritated because there can be diseases that might have caused the irritation. My son woke up this morning crying because he couldn’t open his right eye due to pain. I noticed that his right eye was reddish in color and seemed to be irritated. I will make sure to visit an eye doctor with my son as soon as possible.
