Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question.
Given your symptoms and the things you've tried to combat the swelling, I suspect one of two things is happening:
1. You may be allergic to the implant--it is not uncommon to have an allergic or intolerance reaction to a metal like this.
2. This may represent a low-lying infectious process caused by a contaminated implant; if there is a nidus of infection associated with the implant, then it may not resolve, even with Cipro and may need to be explanted. Also, Keflex might be a better antibiotic to consider for this condition.
Does that help address your concerns?
