Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
the gunk is probably mucus and dead cells from your eyes. This tends to build up at night.
It is not really a sign of infection. Just keep doing the eye scrubs we talked about in the past and use lubricating drops to soothe your eyes.
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you don’t feel that I have earned a “10” rating in all areas, please let me know what I can do to meet your expectations. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
Hi, Dr. Rick-:
I had the shot, it worked so-so, but the Voltaren (oral) has been helping a great deal (yeah, i know you are not an ortho, but you CAN weigh in on this as a doc--)--
What does this tell us?
No, i mean, SERIOUSLY?
My only worry is that it will burn a hole in my stomach(but i AM taking it w/food....)--
--it might actually be WORTH it!!!!
Hope the weather is as nice in--where ARE you???--as it is here in NY!!
same as here, pretty much--
Are you "allowed'
"to tell me which state you are in (i am in psychotic state--LOL!!)??
Do you think i will be protected by the Prevacid and occasional Pepcid vis a vis the Voltaren?
