Question: Hello Doctor, I had discussed my eye trouble. 2 weeks ago, my eye suddenly became red. It was blood red below pupil and next day redness spread half the eye. .The right eye under trouble was etching. No watering. I was putting pred forte for once a day. But the follow up with doctor ,told me to put twice a day.
I changed the doctor .She after examining told, it was sub conjectivital haemmarage . She gave me drops to put and vitamin C tablet 2 times a day for next 15 days.
After examining my eye she found that my vision was not that sharp, as it should be after cataract surgery. She took OCT scan of right eye without dillatation .
She found it tobe normal. She also informed that my uveitis is completely cured. After complaining about ethching below the pupil, slight watering of right eye after watching pc or u tube, she said that the spects u are using are wrong. She increased the power of my spectacles. I am using since 2 days. But not finding too much difference in eye conditions. It etches, some times pains. There is always heaviness or seem that eye is under pressure. I have stopped pred forte.
Pl suggest whether this doctor is right or previous one. Is cataract surgery causing complications? My eye sight is alright., except floaters which i would experience before and after surgery.
Pl give opinion and answer my quarries.

Brief Answer:
Anti allergic treatment.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
You are having some type of allergy. That is causing itching.
Pred forte one or teice a day is a good anti allergic also.In case it is more in thst case oral anti allergic tablets like cetrazine or allegera are also helpful.Since your uvitis is under control and your vision is good there is not much cause of worry.
Lubricating eye drops are also helpful and the can be used for a prolonged period of time.
Any further query in this regard please do get back to us.

Sub conjunctival hemorrhage does not need any treatment. It resolves on it's own in 10 days time.
As this occurs due to either high bp or strain like constipation, cough etc this can always recur and needs no treatment.
FML and pred forte are both steroids so are given for itching in your case,fml being milder.
Your eyesight is 6/6 so a small change in power is ok
Your pressure is fine
Dull macula is just a finding and no disease.
Pciol is description of your lens.It is posterior chamber intraocular lens.
Have a new glass and you can use drops only for itching.

Hello Doctor, you must have gone through my reports. My observations are as follow. 1. In the morning my right eye is little stressed.but as the day passes it is more stressed. The eye pain starts in the afternoon time and continues till night h at the right corner below the pupil.when I start reading a book or watching u tube or PC, watering of eye starts after every half an hour. At night I feel my right eye to be totally exhausted. Is this related to post cataract surgery trouble? Which doctor should I follow now? Shall I continue with pred forte? Will it cause harm to my eye if I am not currently suffering from uveitis? Have u checked the difference between two reports about my spects? When ch spect should b appropriate for me

Brief Answer:
lubricating eye drops

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for getting back to us.
It seems FML eye drop twice a day and lubricating eye drops3 times a day will be fine.
We would not like to comment on power of glasses as they are not dated and power is to be decided on the spot.One has to go by the latest prescription.

Seeing a black floater in my right eye which has been going on for a few months now. I have been seen by an opthalmogist twice now & he has not seen anything out of the ordinary. He said it may be a brain tumor so I do have an appointment to see my family physician in June. This condition also is accompanied by headaches. I am a 27 year old female, & this all developed about 6 months after having my baby. I have just developed bruising on my arms for no apparent reason.
