    Yes, mold could be one of the main causes of the eye irritation because of the invisible bacterium which could affect the clean eyes. You need to use something to get rid of the bacterium in the eyes. You could use the eye drops with anti-inflammation. In addition, you could also use the warm compress to make your eyes to be comfortable.

    Mold can grow anywhere in people's house, if not taken seriously. Exposing to mold can affect people's health, such as allergic responses and irritation of the eyes, and other parts of the body which are naked to mold. Your eyes may get itch, red and watery when exposing to molds. When you eyes contact the mold, your immune system will take the mold as foreign invaders and then fight them, thus make eye irritation. Mold is a threat for your health. You'd better try to clean up them in your house.
