Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
My left eye looks like I have pink eye but there is no discharge. My sclera is swollen on the inner part of my eye along with my eye socket. There is pressure behind my eye and using peripheral vision is quite painful on left side. The painfulness began Saturday morning with random bouts of reddening and the swelling began on Monday. Have used tobramycin and sulfacetamide yesterday and today.
Pain started 5 days ago with period redness that went away with clear eyes drops. Swelling started 3 days ago with constant redness. Vision is ok, no meds besides the tobra and sulfacetamide I started yesterday that was left over from pink eye earlier this yr
Is the high amount of pressure I feel in and around my eye normal for pinkeye? I can feel pressure on the top of my jaw joint. I work at a healthcare facility and am in direct contact with patienrs so is it a bag idea to go to work?
My eye became extremely painful, so I went to an ophthamalogist yesterday and he diagnosed it as episcleritis.
