Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Has this been going on non stop for a month?
Do you wear contact lenses?
How long after it was in the right eye did the left eye become affected?

The problem occurred in the right eye first, lasted for about a week before the left eye became irritated.
No, I do not wear contacts.
My internist thought that I may have pink eye at first so she gave me a prescription for an anitbiotic for that. Later when the eyes had not cleared up, sh thought that I may have had swimmers eye. so she gave me another prescription for the ears only. They now seem to be ok, but my eyes are still very sore. Foe the last week. I have been using Refresh Tears Lubricant for dry eyes inside my ees and have beenoccassionally putting "Equate' nighttime lubricnt eye ointment on the eyelids. Eyes are still sore and the left one is jumping a little.
