Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Is his vision changed at all?
Says you are offline, if so how will you answer my question?
Doctor DanB : Im here.
Doctor DanB : Hs symptoms do not sound consistent with a stroke, but allergic conjunctivitis instead.
Doctor DanB : there are some steps you can take to begin to rid yourself of its symptoms. First of all, it is important to control the eye's response to allergens and this would include taking an antihistamine drop; a couple of over-the-counter brand names include Alaway or Zaditor and they both work fairly well. If you try these and it helps but is not quite enough, then you may do better with a prescription allergy drop called Pataday which works very well. If this still isnt enough then you may be necessary to start an oral antihistamine such as Claritin or zyrtec which you can buy over-the-counter if this isnt helping. Lastly, cold compresses done several times/day can and will help the itching sensation and suppress the inflammation.Your symptoms should start to respond to this quickly.
Doctor DanB : However, his blood pressure is at very high levels and needs to be attended to by a physician as soon as possible.
What about the blood pressure, would what you are indicating put his blood pressure up?
Doctor DanB : No, this shoudnt affect his blood pressure. The two processes are not related to each other. However, his blood pressure is at very high levels and needs to be attended to by a physician as soon as possible.
