I am wondering if anyone has any advice or experienced similar issues as I am at my wits end with it.
Around 2 months ago I started experiencing a feeling that there was something in my right eye, as if there is a hair lying across it. I didn't go away after a few days so I got it checked at A&E who confirmed there was nothing in it and it was not scratched.
I used drops for irritated eyes but it still hadn't improved so I went to the opticians a few days later for an eye test. They again confirmed that there was nothing in my eye and that my vision is pretty much perfect. They said my right eye could have a prescription, but would be that small it would make no difference. After this the issues seemed to disappear.
However, in the 3 weeks the symptoms have come back with a vengeance. The sensation that again there is something in my eye and the constant urge to rub it. I bought different kinds of eye drops for dry eyes and they made no difference. I went back to the opticians who again said there was nothing in the eye and my eyes were not dry but said it looked like there was an allergic reaction. I got drops for allergies and took antihistamines and used cold compression but this hasn't helped. I don't think it is due to allergies as like before it is only affecting one eye.
I then went back to the hospital and the doctor prescribed antibiotic eye ointment to take for 5 days, which ended yesterday and it has also not helped.
I am now going to book another appointment with my GP but does anyone have any advice in the mean time?
The symptom of something in the right eye are almost constant, no drops are relieving it. My eye does seem to be better when I am outside. They get worse at a computer screen or when I am reading. Today I feel quite light headed and finding it hard to focus.
