Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'll be happy to help you with your question.

Dr. Rick :

What type of eye drops and antibiotics have the eye doctors given you? Were these doctors ophthalmologists or optometrists? Could you tell me a little bit more about this white cloudiness? Where did the doctors tell you it was, cornea, lens etc?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I see you are online now.

Customer: Prednizolone is the eydrops they said it was a swollen cornea and I went to a optometrist
Dr. Rick :

I do not believe that an optometrist should be treating corneal edema or playing with steroids, no matter what their state board says they can do. You should make an appointment with an ophthalmologist for a complete evaluation as there are many causes of a "swollen cornea" and all of them require an MD to treat them.

Dr. Rick :

If the general ophthalmologist feels it is necessary she can refer you to a fellowship-trained corneal specialist.

Dr. Rick :

are you still in the chat room?

Dr. Rick :

When you call the ophthalmolgists office you should tell them would would like to be seen quickly; don't let them put off for a week or so.
