This is an update for my previous post after diagnosis with posterior bleph:
So I've been using:
Opatanol antibiotics course for 10 days (finished now)
Hylo Forté 3-6x a day
Hot soak mask 2x a day
Lid massage 2x a day
Blephaclean wipes 2x a day
The main positive is that I've not got any new cysts and my current ones have gone down (1 left eye, 4 right eye). Before starting treatment I was getting a new one what felt like every day!
My eyes burn a bit and sometimes the corners itch every now and then. There's also still some crust in the mornings. I've worn no lenses and a tiny bit of makeup at the very outer edge of my eye.
However I went to the doctor today and she basically said it still looks bad (however it's not the same doctor who saw it previously) and I knew I was doomed when she said "I'm sorry it turned out to be Blepharitis" . She's referred me to a specialist in 2 weeks.
So basically I thought I'd be improving and the specialist 3 weeks ago said I could wear contact lenses in 3 weeks. However doc today said no :-( I don't see why not?! My eyes even felt better in lenses.
I just feel so sad and doomed. Probably been crying for an hour now. All I want is to go back to my life of wearing lenses day in day out and makeup and no long cleaning regimes twice a day. I miss it so much :-(
Oh and she prescribed me oral antibiotics (doxycycline)... Anyone had any major success with them?
Thanks guys xx
