It still feels like there is something in my eye and the pain is sharp with much watering, although for short periods I can open my eye almost as normal. I also get an extra sharp shooting pain in the eye occasionally. The A&E put a dye drop in my eye and had a look through a microscope type of equipment but not underneath my eyelid. he just asked if i had got something in it, to which i replied "not that I remember". I am being referred to the Opthamologist dept of another hospital but am keen to understand why I am still in so much discomfort anfter taking the eye drops.
Is it possible that the eye drops are/have caused irritation?
Thank you last question. I have remembered that when the eye felt slightly better for the couple of days before becoming worse, I switched from the eyedrops to an ointment of the same antibiotic that I was given some months ago when I caught some grit in my other eye. Could it be that the oinment is less irritating then the drops. Clutching at straws I know.
No, I suspected that the drops had caused more irritation so switched to the ointment for the two days. During those two days was when things felt a less irritating, but went back to the drops because the ointment was more difficult to apply and things have worse since.
