Hi Dr. Dan~I have talked with you before~ my name is Martha~ I had very high eye pressure at 37 in each eye~the Specialist got it down to 16 after four days of drops~ I went back today after three months and it was now down to 12 and 14~the Specialist was very contented with this and does not have to see me for 6 months~I had cataract surgery in the left eye 30 years ago and did not have a lens put in and thus have to wear a special contact~ after the Technician and the Doctor both froze my eyes and took my pressure I put my contact in ~ she saw me do it and said in my case it was necessary ~ although it burned going in~I have a blood shot eye tonight and it is bothering me and they are now closed~I took the contact out right away when I got home~ what would be causing this problem~it did not happen the last time I was there~ thanks for any help~Martha`PS My nose is running a lot too and I don't know whether to put my eye drops in tonight or not~
I did not receive an answer thus far~
I assume they freeze your eye ~ it was yellow afterwards~before they apply an instrument to take the pressure~???They call it freezing I think~I just do not understand why this one eye is all of a sudden sore and blood shot~I guess maybe I should not have put the contact in afterwards??? as it is only that left eye that is bothering me~
I also had eye make up on~ would that maybe do something~
This makes sense~ since it only happened after I came home from there~ two Doctors took my pressure this time and yet it never happened before~I was so happy that my pressure was so good~ and I did not have to go back for a while~ then this happened tonight~ would I skip my eye drops tonight~ in that eye anyway~it did burn when I put the contact in~maybe she should have told me to leave it out???
The only one is why did this happen to just one eye~she also said it would be too risky now to put an implant in~ yet Dr. Rick kept telling me to go and have it done~two different opinions I guess~I have three different drops at night to put in~ would that be okay~
My eye is burning kind of I would call it and it is kind of scary~have you heard of this happen before~
Thanks for your reassurance~then I should put all three eye drops in tonight??Sorry about bringing up the topic about an implant~off subject I realize~
