Dry Ear Syndrome

Posted , 2 users are following.

I get soreness on the cheek under one eye when I apply pressure, the eye constantly feels like I have something in it, its sore and mild pain around the eye. sometimes get blotches in the eye but when I blink it usually goes. Inner eye feels sore, but when I look at my eye it looks fine no redness or anything. Doc wants to give me steroids to treat possible neuralgia pain but I wonder if the causes are Dry Eyes as the optician said my eyes are very dry and gave me drops but ive noticed no improvement and been taking the drops for 3 days. I have a day drops and a paste thing I put in my eye at night. Would dry eyes cause all my symptoms?

Anyone have any similar experiences ?

    Hi yes I have had dry eye syndrome and had the same signs and symptoms. I saw an ophthalmologist and he prescribed lacrilube eye cream to be put into the eye at night. I was unable to take the eye drops as even the allegedly hypoallergenic ones are very irritating to the eyes as they all contain preservatives etc. I also had eye concretions both conditions are treatable. Perhaps seeing a specialist may be a good idea before embarking on steroids drops unnecessarily

    My eyes have improved so the doc told me not to take the steroids, the night paste I think is really helping.
