Doctor-Bob :

sorry about the delay, have you used allergy drops or pills?

Doctor-Bob :

A gritty or sandy feeling in the eyes, especially when blinking, is often a feature of allergic conjunctivitis which can be very distressing and uncomfortable. This can be treated with oral anti-histamines and allergy eye drops. In some cases, steroid eye drops are needed. These are stronger at suppressing allergic reactions and inflammation, but need to be monitored by a doctor.

Doctor-Bob :

There are also some neurologic conditions that can lead to droopy eyelids, and we can go over some of them if allergic conjunctivitis has been rule out already.

Doctor-Bob :

Are you still there?
