It does sound like you might be having some type of allergic reaction also. It is unlikely that the ophthalmologist would have missed a condition called Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis, which can occur in contact lens users.
The drop she gave you should help. I would also try cool compresses and cleaning your eyes with baby shampoo on your fingers in the shower. To do this put the shampoo on your index fingers, close your eyes and scrub back and forth across your eyelids.
If thing don't improve in a few days, say Monday at the latest, you may need a stronger eye drop such as Pred Forte 1% for a few days.
What type of allergic reaction? As in cats or similar?
What do you think she means by "cobblestone" texture?
Thank you for your time. Why would only one eye be having a reaction? And why does it feel like it's scraping when I blink? It's a very sharp pinpoint of pain in one spot, not a general irritation.
My eyes are super sensitive to everything - sunlight, glare, cat hair, cold air, makeup, and especially eye creams. I have to leave the room if someone's cutting a onion! Hopefully the baby shampoo will be sufficiently gentle. I used to get a lot of gunk in my eyes in the morning but I don't anymore. Now when I wake up my eyes water for about an hour. Very annoying. Is that from having dry eyes?
I will look up "meibomium gland" to see what that means.
