Customer Question
I had a laymans...

I had a laymans description pink eye or conjuctivitius, I did't follow the instructions on the medication, the condition became anti biotic resistant and now I have it all the time, small amount of eye buggers every morning for the last year, seems to be slowly worsening slowly over time, theory deteriating the lipid layer. Has symtoms similar to dry eye, with peak irritation on wakeing, but by noon my eyes look basically normal, and hence doctors blow me off. Please don't blow me off. Condition eventually spead to my ears as well, with continuous mild to moderate ear irritation. Tired of being given the same antibiotics and hopeing for a different result. Lets tackel the eyes together:) I thing that if we cultured the eye germs and tested for effective meds we could find something

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?

The ears 6 months, the eyes a year and a half. No cold or flus in many years.
