Customer Question
I'm just recovering from...

I'm just recovering from a sinus infection. During this time, my right eye felt a little tinge when I touched it. It watered a lot and I was taking Corricidin (more than I ever have). Today the right eye looks red toward the back. I've had this many times in both eyes but always more in the front. I'm scheduled to see the eye doctor next Tuesday (soonest appointment) but wonder if I should be worried.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

It has been the past week of sinus - today it feels better.

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

I'm 84 and just getting ready to have cataract removal. My eyesight is very good for my age and only the past year has the eye become ready for cataract.
