Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Yup. I'm here.
I see that my last message didn't go through. We seem to be having technical problems....
getting them now!
Were you seen by and ophthalmologist or an optometrist for your "pink eye"? How long ago was this?
Yup...seems to be working again...
about a week or two ago
You may have a small scratch/ skin defect on your cornea.
You should try some cold compresses and use artificial tears frequently during the day.
If it is still the same tomorrow you should consider seeing an ophthalmologist....your eye should not still be hurting from pink eye at this point.
would that cause these headaches
Lots of things can cause headaches....eye pain included. I'd just use OTC meds for the headaches and, hopefully, when things resolve with your eyes the headaches will go away too...
if it is something on my cornea, how long if I do the cold com. and drops till I feel relief?
The cold compresses for 15 min on/30 off...but this can be varied as needed. The drops about every two hours but, once again, it is safe to use them more. The primary thing is that if you don't notice improvement by tomorrow, or if it gets worse, go see an ophthalmologist....you only have two eyes and it is nice to have both of 'em working...
Does this make sense to you?
yes and just to know are these symptoms similar to something more serious?
At this point it may be related to your pink eye and may improve/resolve with this simple, at home, treatment. That being said, if it doesn't improve then it really needs to be looked at to make sure nothing else, which may require different therapy, is going on.
one last question and thanks by the way!! Would it have anything to do with sinusis
No.....I wouldn't expect sinus problems to give you ocular pain such as you are describing....
Is there anything else I can do for you this morning?
