Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
There was a possibility I got a piece of dry dog faeces in my eye yesterday. I was told to go to hospital, they looked in my eye and they couldn't see anything but they flushed it with saline and have put me on antibacterial ointment for 5 days. I have been using this and my eye is still sore and is a little blurred today. Could this cause blindness?
Should I keep using the ointment? Used it three times yesterday, supposed to use it four but did not use it before bed or this morning and no irritation in my eye now. Should I use it in case of possible infection or should I not in case that is causing the irritation?
I've been told by nurse to keep using it for the full five days. I also saw my Doctor today for another matter and I asked for a new tube of ointment as some of mine has been wasted. He gave me the same thing, Chloramphenicol, but in eye drops instead of ointment. Are the drops as effective for preventing infection?
