On 25th. Nov. this year I had a biennial eye check-up with an eye specialist who didn't think there was anything to worry about, although he recommended Clinitas carbomer gel to be used if I experienced occasional itchy eyelids, but I have not been suffering a bloodshot eye until this month & only in one eye. That's all I can think of that might be relevant.
I saw an ophthalmologist at the Nuffield in Glasgow. However, that was before the current problem which my GP thinks is an eye infection. What bothers me is that I thought it had cleared up & so went for a swim resulting in a flare-up which resulted in me going back on the chloramphenicol eye drops. Swimming has been part of my fitness regime since childhood & am reluctant to give up.
