Recurring eye infection

Posted , 3 users are following.

since October i have been getting eye infections. my eyes are always watery and i usually have discharge at night. i have seen two doctors and 4 optometrist and they all have prescribed me loads of antibiotics and medication for allergies. none of those worked... in December a doctor told me to stop all my meds for my eyes and 24 hours

later i had twice the amount of discharge i usually have , had red and burning skin on my face, hives and i was tachycardic, i went to the hospital and they gave me more meds... my eyes still havent improved since, they went back to how they were before: watery and discharge at night. no one knows what to do and its starting to be really hard for my moral because i dont think i can live in constant eye pain.

    I am so sorry you're having to deal with this, especially if no medical professional can determine what is wrong or how to correct the problem. I can't even imagine your fear and frustration! I'm going to assume that you've changed the various fabrics you use (pillows, sheets, towels, clothing) and personal products (soap, shampoo, finger nail polish, etc.), kept a food journal (searching for food triggers), set up an air filter and humidifier, etc. etc. And have you been evaluated by an ophthalmologist (not a medical general practitioner or optometrist)? I wonder if you could see a specialist at one of the top rated eye hospitals? I'm grasping at straws here in an attempt to offer help... maybe someone in this forum has gone through similar experience and can offer help.

      they wont refer me to an ophtalmologist because when i go to the doctor they do not see any infection only irritation. i have a journal where i write everything down about my eye and the things i ate. i have changed my sheets and the products i use but no success
