Customer:

I never received your response.

Dr. Tom :

Hello, I have just received your reply.....No I did not get your response or your photograph.

Dr. Tom :

The attachment of a digital image is generally easy for those who post questions. Is there anything that I might do to assist you in up loading an image of your eye? Without the image it will be difficult to give you a detailed answer to your question. However, if without the photograph, you would like to ask me anything specific about your eye I would be very happy to answer.

Hi....the form of photo attachment is usually pretty easy for clients to attach. Did you try the paperclip icon?

But in the event that you can't upload your photograph, I am going to give you a link to a site that describes an eye condition that might be the cause of a part of your eye being red for the month as you posed in your question. WHen you have looked at the site, let me know if it's simiar to your problem...and then maybe I can make recomendations for you.

Yes, this sounds like my problem

OK, I'm glad we could find something to help answer your question. So I would recommend that you see an ophthalmologist who can get you on the correct eye drops to get your problem under control. I am glad I was able to help. Best wishes.
