Hello,

Thank you for the question. I am Dr.A.S.Desai, certified ophthalmologist and I look forward to answering this question.

I need to ask you a few questions here-

1. Is the vision in the affected eye blurred?

2. Have you touched something ( like perfume/spray/weed) and then rubbed your eye accidentally?

3. Since how many days have you had these symptoms?

Thank you. I look forward to your reply.

This is just an information request.

Hi. Vision is blurred in dilated eye. Didn’t touch anything but was very watery Wednesday night. Woke up w what looked like pink eye Thursday. Had pink eye sxs. I work w kids so I wasn’t too worried. But today woke up and it is very swollen and eye dilated. I did start antibiotic drops. Could this cause it the dilation. Thinking it’s viral bc only getting worse. Swelling on top is bad.

Is it possible for you send a picture of that eye? Ask some to click the image of the affected eye?

Thank you for the additional information . A pink eye would cause redness, watering and sometimes swelling around the eye if severe, but not dilation of the pupil or blurred vision. So the last two are a matter of concern.

Ok. I did get to see the pictures. The pupil seems to be widely dilated though the swelling is mild.

Looks like toxic pupil ( accidental rubbing of eye after touching a contaminant).

Try putting lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day for 2-3 days. The pupil should begin to return to its original size by then.

If the pupil does not begin to return to normal size, then do consult your ophthalmologist for a closer look.

Hope this helps you to take the right decision. Take care.

Do remember to rate this response positively if it was up to your expectation/satisfaction. Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.

Regards

Dr.A.S.Desai

Still bad. Should I go to opthomologisy
Eye Doctor: Dr. A.S. Desai, Ophthalmologist replied 7 months ago

Yes, if the eye feels as bad as before then it makes sense to consult your ophthalmologist for a closer look.
