Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Thank you doctor , I am concerned about the treatment today
For viral conjunctivitis there is no reason to remove bacteria from your eyes using a metal tool or cotton bud. I would not ever go back to this doctor if that is a treatment he recommended for presumptive viral conjunctivitis.
Also, since viral conjunctivitis is caused by a virus antibiotics, which only work on bacteria, will do nothing at all.
That being said, many doctors prescribe antibiotics for patients with a viral infection "just in case" they happen to come down with a secondary bacterial infection.
Could this have made the eyes worse and if so what to do next.
It will not do any permanent damage...but it won't make things better either.
I would use artificial tears to soothe her eyes along with cold compresses. If she is not feeling better in a day or so I would consult with a reputable ophthalmologist (Eye MD) for proper diagnosis and treatment.
The good news? If she does indeed have viral conjunctivitis it will run its course soon and she should start feeling better.
Thank you for that , we have another appointment now in London MOORFIELDS hospital is this ok
Thank you .
Moorfields is one one of the best eye hospitals in the world. You will be in excellent hands there.
I would never, never ever step foot into the office of this other "doctor"
My pleasure. Have a good day.
