Diagnosed with type b flu. Swelling around eyes. Hurts to touch. Suggestions?

I have been diagnosed with type b flu . I have not ever had this as far as I remember. But my eyeballs not around my eyes feel swollen to the touch and hurt. I have to wear sunglasses around anylight just to make it bearable. This seems to come and go every 30 min or so. I have even woke up at night with my eyes hurting.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response

The symptoms in your eyes are assosiated symptoms with type B flu you have been diagnosed with. You are required to wash your eyes with warm clean water 3-4 times a day. Also, use some anti-biotic and anti-inflamatory eye drops 3-4 times a day and a anti-biotic eye ointment at bedtime.

Your eye symptoms should get relieved in 3-4 days. If the symptoms still persist you should visit an eye specialist.
