Brief Answer:
Eye ointment needed.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for sending your query to us.

This needs an steroid eye ointment to be applied to the surrounding skin. A short course of anti allergy tablets will also help.

Have you had a cataract surgery, if not then I will advise against using steroid drops in the eye for long periods. That is the reason we want the ointment on the surrounding skin.

Continue with system drops.

Take care.
