Had an eye condition 5 days ago when my eye felt bruised but

Customer Question

Had an eye condition 5 days ago when my eye felt bruised but looked ok so saw Opthomologist who confirmed all was ok but should it continue hurting see a doctor. After 24 hrs I awoke with a large water blister across the bottom half of the eyeball so went to doctor who suggested it was an allergic reaction to the drops used by eye man. Prescribed a 4 day course of steroid tablets and eye drops. The following day the blister was gone and eye felt better but still felt tender/bruised. Woke this morning with blister back so still administering eye drops, somewhat concerned. Any ideas. Many thanks Tony

No diagnosis as yet? Am still using eye drops but large blister still apparent, quite sore overnight but does seem to improve during the day. At a loss to understand next step of treatment so some input would be helpful !!!

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

So very sorry Anthony but I was never sent your photos

Just one question then--can you describe the appearance of the eye in detail?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Eye is bloodshot with swollen lids and bottom half of eyeball is blistered. Have been on a small Island in Ireland with no Doc so today moved to mainland and have doc appointment at 1530 so will let you know diagnosis.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

OK Anthony.

For now this sounds like a viral conjunctivitis and it may even be a case of shingles

Hopefully you'll be given a course of both oral and eyedrop acyclovir to cover it.

Let me know how it goes

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Many thanks, ***** ***** avoided then, phew 😀😀 Will let you know

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
