Could you please tell me the name of the Alcon drop?
Was the concerned person seen by an ophthalmologist or a general practitioner?
Emergency doctor, Forrest doyle, ED Physician
Meds: Alcon :Tetracaine HCO, Dos. 0.5%/single dose unit
Milky discharge could be because of infection. Tetracaine is used to numb the eye before certain procedures. You should see an ophthalmologist rather than a physician. This treatment does not appear to be right. If there some infection you should have been prescribed an anti-biotic drop. He should have also looked for a foreign body. Tetracaine will numb the eyes for few minutes and then pain and burning will start again and you can not continue using it every 20 minutes. You should use a lubricating drop and an ant-biotic drop till you see an ophthalmologist. Thanks and best wishes.
