My doctor performed PRK surgery in both my eyes in August 2015. All was good but I sometimes missed my eyedrops dosage. Until in October 2015 when I had a very severe conjunctivitis. Since then it really hasn't been the same. I was recently told that I have a corneal scarring now. I have been prescribed moxifloxacin Olopatadine polyacrylic gel over the year and on the last checkup polyacrylic gel mixed with cyclosporine. I have read on this corneal scarring and all I see are surgical treatments. What is my doctor trying to achieve by prescribing cyclosporine? My reading on autoref was +2.5 I think.

    cyclosporine eye drops is used to increase tear production,and reduce inflammation and scarring. corneal lasers may be followed by dry eyes which increase sense of eyes irritation and inflammation.

      if small and irritation is not too much, just try to tolerate. if larger , think about PTK . if dense and large and severly irritating your vision, go to corneal transplant which is a big surgery and has its own risks.

      I went to the doctor again. First he scolded me and said what have you done to your cornea 😂 then he told me that the scar is only on the surface and hasn't invaded deep. Though it will require surgery. He gave me Prednisolone acetate and asked me to come after a week.

    doctors love to give eye drops, but I do not think that is a fix. i was putting between the two eye 13 drops a day... Four different drops and it seem to make it worst.

    my eyesight is glassy feels like they have a glaze over them. I will love uo corneal scarring so sorry about you condition.
