How is your vision? Is there mattering and/or crusting in the morning?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I wear glasses my left is good right eye worse don;t remember the strength of glasses no i have no mattering or crusting in morning my upper eyelid is a little red in morning i also have some drooping in eyelid my eye doctor first thought it was allergy put me on steroid drops didn't seem to help
Expert:  Dr. Chan replied 5 years ago.

Hello,

 

It does sound like allergy. However, what the allergy can do is to loosen the white part of the eye so that it swells up and sometimes hangs over the lower lid. This causes redness and swelling. I think what you need is some ointment to put in at night right before bedtime. This will help to protect the eye while you are sleeping. If you can, turn off and ceiling fans at night and humidify the air in the bedroom. Sometimes, while asleep, the eyelid do not shut tight and this leaves the eye exposed to air and dries out as well.

One more question my doctor wants me to have a ct scan of eye to see if there is a tumor this worries me whatdo you think?
Expert:  Dr. Chan replied 5 years ago.

Hello,

 

What made him think that there is a tumor? Is the swelling hard and firm like a nodule? Or is it soft?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
it feels in upper eyelid also fairly soft under the eye what kind of ortiment do i need is it something i can get over the counter? the doctor just told me he wanted to rule out a possible turmor
Expert:  Dr. Chan replied 5 years ago.

Hello,

 

Artificial tears come in ointment form (like Genteal gel or Lacrilube). These are OTC. I can't really comment on the CT since I can't see or feel the lids.
