Orthopaedist doctor and her gp. She is asmatic so takes green inhayler and use piriton sometimes for her pets alergy
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 1 year ago.

Well....she really, really needs to see an ophthalmologist.

Dumping steroids on those lesions without a correct diagnosis is not a good idea.

It is possible that she might have nodular scleritis or episcleritis......unfortunately I can't make a diagnosis without a full exam.

But, one thing is for sure:

This is beyond the training and skills of a GP or an optometrist.

So. What should you do?

Get her seen by an ophthalmologist/pediatric ophthalmologist in the very near future.

Does this make sense to you?
