Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Please give me a little background on the history of when and how your eye became red.
Also please tell me if you have any medical diagnoses, and were treated using prednisone in the form of eyedrops or prednisone pills.
Have you been examined by a medical ophthalmologist?
no went to er
Did you have any other conditions at the time you went to the emergency room or was it solely for the examination of your red eye?
i have dermititis my face felt a little swollen and around my nose and forehead was red
Okay, thanks for that extra information. That explains why the ER physician put you on oral prednisone. As you can imagine, they are many causes for conjunctivitis, which we commonly refer to as red eyes or pink eye. And without a proper ophthalmological examination it will just be hit or miss with the use of varying eyedrops that you can get over-the-counter or prescribed by a general physician. So my best advice is to make the effort to establish an appointment with an ophthalmologist and get a proper diagnosis. The good news is that most cases of red eyes can be cleared up quickly with the proper management. Does that make sense?
yes it does my deal is i dont have ins but i dont like to feel like this it worries me a whole bunch i would like to find a good eye doc
Great, that's a very good idea to try to find an ophthalmologist. In the meantime you might try a lubricating drop such as Systane, which is an over-the-counter preparation with instructions on the box. Do you have any other questions for me tonight?
yes will it affect me in anyway considering i have dermititis and also will it take away the redness on my face or what can i use
It will be perfectly all right for you to use the over-the-counter lubricating eye drops even though you have dermatitis, but it will not take away the redness on your face. Please let me know if there are any other questions, but if that takes care of your question, thank you for allowing me to help you.
ok thank you
You're very welcome, good night.
