Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you avsilable to chat?
Doctor DanB : while most abrasions do heal in 7-10 days, the cornea can still be dry and irritated which can cause the vision to remain fuzzy. To treat that, I would recommend using artificial tears 3-4x/day in that eye for the next 1-2 weeks to help that out.
Is it okay to use it and still use the drops the opthamologist recommended?
Doctor DanB : Yes, it is. Did he still want you on the Tobradex drops even though the abrasion has healed?
I went last thursday and was told to continue it but reduce the drops from 4x per day to 3. My next visit is friday.
Doctor DanB : I see. It's likely that its still not all the way healed, but I think it's a good idea to use both; just separate the two drops by 3-4 minutes each if you take them at the same time.
Doctor DanB : Do you have any other questions about this?
No all my questions have been answered. I tried asking these types of questions to her but unfortunately she seemed uninterested and only answered "I don't know". Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
