Customer Question
I have had on...

I have had on going ey issues for a month, first I had an eye infection in one eye, my lid was swollen, so I went to the walk in clinic and she gave me 7 days of antibiotics, and drops for a week, it felt better for one week and then bothe eye were burning and tearing and red so I went to the opthamologist and she said it was viral conjunction and to do nothing for two weeks and if it doesn’t go away to come see her, again I went back 2 weeks later and she now said I had an irritation in the lining of my eyes and she gave me antibiotic drops and a prednisone ointment at night, she said to do 3 drops a day for a week then two drops then one for three weeks... it’s been two weeks and now ther is a clear like jell in the corner of my right eye... and I can’t take it anymore, it’s the holidays and I have a wedding on Friday ... what should I do ?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No swelling now just the jell in right eye

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I just had a lot of blood work because my red blood, white blood and platelets were high, and I tested positive for the JAK2 mutation in my blood.. I have an appointment with the hematologist next Monday for the results of my tests, do you think that could be related

I would stop all the drops and only use cold compresses on your eyes 3x/day or more from now until the wedding on Friday.

Hopefully by then your eyes will look better.

Does this make sense to you?
