Hello there

 

given that you have a sinus infection, you are developing an infection in the eye. You ned to cleanse the eye with warm water and a wash cloth and call your doctor in the am and get a prescription for an antibiotic eye drop. Hope this helps, Dr. Stevens

I guess you are unable to do a prescription

Actually it is now illegal (2009) to prescribe medicines without a face to face visit one time, so it is not a possible thing. I am pretty sure your primary doc can easily call one in for you, Dr. Stevens
