I have getting double eye injections since 09 and each month

Customer Question

I have getting double eye injections since 09 and each month the Betadine drops have caused increasing side effects; burning, scratchy, and the symptoms last for 16 hours. The doctor does wash the eye and lines the eye with salve but the damage has been done. Is there a substitute for Betadine? I am hyperallergic at this point
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am 72 years old and my vision is declining
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

Sorry to hear that.

Betadine should be avoided.

Soothing antibacterial ointment like bacitracin can be used instead.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
