thanks for sending your query to us.
in cases like this you have to have a repeat of this treatment,try refresh tears for 2days and if you feel that the response is less then genteal gel can be added.
Injuries like this ,once healed ,do not recur like this normally.We have to keep an open mind that there can be some other reason for your pain.Surface disorders will be relieved by this medication but if not do get back to me.
In case there is some discharge in the eye as well,antibiotic eye drops can also be added.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
