Does anyone know why I might be having itchy eyes?  There is no drainage, no watering and no redness-  Just a little bit of \swelling and itching.

I had that same itchy, irritated feeling for about three weeks once. I finally went to my family doctor who gave me eye drops for inflamation/infection. He told me that Crohns is an inflamatory disorder, which does effect the eyes at times. The medication worked within a few days. I keep some on hand now because it does occasionally flare up again. Good luck!

Are you on steroids? I've had side effects from Prednisone that cause itchy, burning eyes.

I had this too and was given eye drops, nothing much was made about it though

I still get it and take the drops every so often

I have itchy eyes, have had it now for 4 weeks i am not on steroids, i went to the eye doc and there is nothing wrong with my eyes. He said that i should just put in some fake tear drops if it is really bothering me.
