Not light sensitive
Slight feeling of irritation
I haven't had a cold recently and have never had sinusitis
(I'm a registered nurse, but my specialty is chronic wound management)
Not enough exudate to matt the eye lashes
No significant foreign body sensation
Just a little, like the conjunctiva is irritated.
It doesn't feel like when you have a foreign body in your eye. Nothing like having a speck of soot in there or anything.
I'm still at work, managing OK.
Strangely, my co-worker has woken with a similar thing, though not as bad. I haven't seen him for a week and have never touched him. He comes from the same town as me though, which is 50km from where we work. Neither of us have ever had anything like this.
I just noticed it as i went to sleep last night, and noticed it on waking
and then, my eye has become more irriated during the day
I can still work, but its difficult to concentrate
I just don't know if conjunctivitis (bacterial / viral) can cause this bruising type pain....
I can attach a picture
Just a moment, taking it in
Yes, thankyou. I don't have any of those diseases, to my knowledge.
Can it be caused by bacteria?
I mean, what treatment should I be considering?
And is this 'bruising' pain on palpation usual for scleritis?
No, thankyou, that's great!
Thanks again. Goodbye.
