    Suggest treatment for irritation in the eye

Posted on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 in Vision and Eye Disorders
Question: Very irritated left eye last night. Felt like foreign object. Able to remove and immediate relief but still watering. This AM eye was glued shut but opened with warm cloth. Today no pain, just watering a little. Slight swelling and pupil is slightly dilated. I am headed to Europe. Feels OK beyond slight watering. Ok to go?

Eye injury

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your question on HCM

I do understand your concern

“As” per your clinical history is concerned watering is due to injury to your eye so you need a detailed physical examination by your local doctor. You can apply cold compress to the affected eye and use saline drops at home.Your treating doctor if confirmed a secondary bacterial infection he may prescribe you an antibiotic eye drops.

So nothing to be worried at all and you can travel without any problems

Hope that helps
