Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Yes....there is no issues inside my eye itself other than the light sensitivity. My eyesight is fine, I have an itching sensation around my eye brows and eye lashes but nothing within my eye. There is no redness
Also, I am told the shingles has passed and I am now suffering from postherepetic neugralgia
Could you give me some idea of the type of treatment I might expect to receive if it is determined that Shingles is present in my eye
I did not mean to give you a poor rating. I tried to contact Just Answer to have it changed. Please advise as to what I can do to correct this problem. Thanks....I intended to give you an excellent rating
Okay, no problem. I understand having thick fingers on the mouse or keyboard (I have them many times). Unfortunately, I do not think we are going to know exactly what you need until you see the ophthalmologist. You need to contact yours if you have one, and if you don't have one, try to get into see one. See if your general medicine doctor can get you into see one any sooner than you may be able to procure an appointment. Just be sure to tell them you have shingles and that the eye is light sensitive and painful. My bet is that you're going to need steroid drops for that eye. Do you have any other questions about this?
My last question and thanks for your help. Should the steroid drops offer immediate relief from the sensitivity. It is driving me crazy.
I would expect that within 24-48 hrs on the steroids, it would significantly diminish your light sensitivity, yes.
