Dr. PG :

hi

Dr. PG :

welcome to just answer

Dr. PG :

are you present online?

Customer:

Yes I am

Dr. PG :

can you give me some more information regarding your eye?

Dr. PG :

what is the status now?

Dr. PG :

any pain, discharge, decreased vision etc?

Customer:

No discharge , just quite tender to touch and still blood shot, vision ok

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

the problem is only in the right eye?

Dr. PG :

left eye is absolutely normal?

Customer:

Yes thats right

Dr. PG :

how old are your present contact lenses?

Customer:

I use monthly one`s, and the pair I am using are 3 weeks old

Dr. PG :

ok

Dr. PG :

given your history the possibility is that you might have had some injury to your eye, most probably your cornea

Dr. PG :

either some foreign body (like dust particle) might have got between the lens and the cornea or the injury might have occurred while removing or wearing the lens

Dr. PG :

so, at present do not use your contact lens

Dr. PG :

use lubricating eye drops like refresh tears/optive/systane (available over the counter) frequently

Dr. PG :

i.e. every one minute for 5 minutes, then every 5 minutes for 15 minutes, every 15 minutes for an hour and every hourly for 6 hours, then 4 times a day

Dr. PG :

ideally, you need to be evaluated by an ophthalmologist for need of antibiotic eye drops

Dr. PG :

because rarely, thes might be an initial symptom of an eye infection or eye flu

Dr. PG :

and also it would be better to start with the new pair of contact lenses when you resume using them

Dr. PG :

for now, try using the frequent lubricating eye drops

Customer:

Many Thanks for your advice

Dr. PG :

you are most welcome

Dr. PG :

hope you recover fast
