For over a month now, I've been having an issue with my eyes or mainly my left eye. It started one day, I had some irratation and my eyes were really red. I was at work and people kept asking why my eyes were so red. I took my contacts out and wore glasses
for the next week. After nothing changed, I went to an eye doctor, he said I had some infection in my eye but that it wasn't pink eye or anything serious. I did'nt have any pain, besides some minor burning sensation occasionally. I had no discharge, no sensitivity to light. All that seemed to be going on was my eyes were really red, and if I put my contacts in, it only got worse, and there was a irratating burning in my left eye, which was minor but still it felt like my eye was very dry. Sorry, got side tracked. After the first visist, the doctor gave me a mild broad spectrum antibiotic eyedrop, I used it like I was suppose to, no contacts, drops every few hours for a week. nothing changed. I went back and he gave me another antibiotic drop with an antiinflamatory which burned for a second when i put it in. I used these until the small bottle was gone, about five days. After three days, it seemed to be clearing up, my eyes were whitening, but then it reverted, and they became red again, but not as red. I again went back to the doctor, and he said the infection seemed to have subsided, so he said if there was still anything there, it had to be an allergy. I do have allergies, but i have medicine, which i'd taken, and my eyes weren't itching, it didn't seem like any eye allergy I'd experienced. He told me not to use any drops besides a new solution which was preservative free. I tried this with the new contacts. And it seemed for a day or two that my problem might be going away. I had a day of reasonably carefree contact use, mildly burning feeling for the first hour, but after i stopped thinking about it, it went away, but then after the second day, it took longer. I had a burning feeling for the first two hours and then i wore them for another 3 or 4 without irratation. But now, I can't put them back, or I can and the irratation is only minor meaning, i could wear them if I had to, but my left eye is always uncomfortable, there just seems to be a very mild burning in my left eye. And my eye is slightly red again. Not as red, but still. When looked at from straight one, it doesn't appear to be red, but when i look to the left, so the side of my inner left i is exposed, there is a triangle of red extending out towards my iris
, but it stops just before. Without my contacts in, I guess its not really a big deal, I don't notice any irratation, besides a mild burning if i really try to notice it, but i need my contacts back. I really can't stand wearing my glasses all day, I'm just curious if this is some obvious affliction or if its something where I'm simply doomed to never wear contacts again. Thanks and have a great day. please help.
