Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
When you look at your daughters eye, does it look normal to you?
Yes, it looks normal. She is blinking more than normal.
The most likely cause of her eye pain, in light of a normal looking eye, after her bout with strep throat is a sinus problem/infection. This is a common cause of periorbital/ocular pain.
Depending upon how much discomfort she is in, and how much relief she gets from the household pain medicine you would normally give her would dictate weather or not you feel you can wait to see the pediatrician tomorrow.
From what you tell me she should be OK until tomorrow.
Ok, thanks for the info. I just wasn't sure when it comes to the eyes! thanks again.
My pleasure. I hope she feels better soon.
