Customer Question

Hello
Post cataract surgery on the 5th August which has had continual weeping of the eye since, I have now noticed I have a deterioration in vision.
I have not responded fully to antibacterial eye drops, steroids and artificial tears and whilst systemic Flucloxicilln was 90% successful, there was still a sore bit under the eyelid (centre). I'm still weeping and I am now getting dizzy occasionally and I noticed the deterioration in vision. My consultant simply things it is allergy hence the steroids but I haven't had any drops now for 3 weeks and I don't get allergies anyway. Also didn't get them when my other eye was done. Any idea as to what might be happening?
