Hope someone can help but I was diagnosed with having Blepharitis a few months ago and have been following the strict regime of eye compresses and lid srubs every day. When I was using a blephaclean wipe to carefully wipe my bottom eyelid a few weeks ago, my hand went into some kind of stupid spasm, and I ended up poking my eye with the wipe. About an hour later, I felt an uncomfortable scratched feeling in my left eye and thought that this will clear up in a few days. A week later it still felt a bit sore so I thought I would stop the heat compresses for a few days to see if this is what was causing this take so long to heal. Then about 4 days ago, I had an extreme burning sensation take place at the top most end of both my eyes. The burning was intense and after about an hour I used a cold compress but this did little to calm the situation. Another few hours passed and then the burning subsided, but ever since it has left the top portion of both inner eyelids feeling scarred and now my eyes are feeling so sensitive both when opened and closed, it's uncomfortable as I can only sleep a few hours without being woken by this horrible sensitive feeling as though someone is rubbing the pupil of your eye with their finger. I have stepped up with my eye drops (hylo tear) but these seem to make the sensitivity worse and I am off food as it has it is making me nauseated - just at a loss as to what to do. I could go to my A&E unit but they will probably just say it's just a symptom of dry eye / blepharitis and to just carry on with the eyelid cleaning routing. This is sheer hell at the moment, has anyone else experienced anything similar to me and if so, did this clear up or is it ongoing? Thank you for taking the time to read this, but really need some help here as am worried I cannot carry on like this.
