I got something in my eye about two weeks and ago. I thought it would go away. But it did not. So I went to see my doctor. She flushed my eye. She sai nothing was wrong but if it keeps up in two days I should make an appointment with eye doctor. The problem I have is there is a light film covering my eye. What should I do?

Dr. James :

How is your vision?

Dr. James :

What do you think got into it?

Dr. James :

What eye drops are you using if any?

Customer:

one day it cleared up then after that it has light film on it have a hard time seening when I go out in the sunlight. I think it was a small hair with hairspray on it. clear eye I am using for my eye.

Dr. James :

You likely have persistent irritation from the hairspray.

Dr. James :

I'd recommend you just use regular artificial tears.

Dr. James :

If it doesn't clear up or getting worse, then definitely see an ophthalmologist to make sure nothing is still there.

Dr. James :

but from what you are telling me, it sounds like irritation.

Customer:
