Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology and retina surgery experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Is she being treated by an ophthalmologist?

What are the names of the drops she is on?

Does one of them have a red top?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi
Yes she is treated by ophthalmologist
The drop names are
1-evolve
2-ChloramphenIcol-10 ml
And please as soon as you can answer me questions which I put in my first post up regarding that her right pupil is not responding for the lights and the left is responding
I am very afraid
Thanks

It sounds like she may have uveitis (inflammation inside the eyeball) although it is hard to say without examining her at the slit lamp. This could cause her pupil to get "stuck".

Of course, there are other conditions that can keep her pupil from responding.

An ophthalmologist is the best trained doctor to treat your mother.

If you could upload a picture of her ophthalmology notes I would be happy to go over them with you.

Does this make sense to you?
