Hello, Welcome to Just Answer
Are you available for chat now?
Do you know the name of the eye drops given for the pink eye?
polymixin B sulfate and trimethoprin opthalalic solution
But for the swollen right eye, is there any redness/pain/watering or photophobia( intolerence to bright light) in the right eye?
feels tight, intolerance to light.
I also have RA, but never have eye problems with it
So it is only the white of the right eye that is swollen and not the eyelids, right?
Swelling of the white part of the eye( conjunctiva) is called conjunctival chemosis. It is just an edema due to excessive rubbing of the eye. It should subside on its own within a day or two. As long as there is no redness/pain or watering in that eye, the chemosis does not need any specific treatment.
ok then I'll try to go to bed with it.
Just take the analgesic for the pain, if possible give an eye wash if you feel there is any spec or dust in the eye.
Avoid rubbing the eye.
You are most welcome. In case there is any pain or watering or redness, consult an ophthalmologist as it could be from an embedded foreign body ( either corneal or sub-tarsal in the conjunctiva) or even an infection. In the absence of any of these symptoms, there is nothing to worry about chemosis.
