Red eyes. Used OpconA. Redness recurred with white spots on iris. Extremely sensitive to light. What could this be?

My husbands eyes are both really red. He has used Opcon A for the past two days. When he uses it, it feels like sand is in his eye, but then it subsides and the redness goes away for a little while. Today, however, the redness is accompanied by white spots on his iris. He has no drainage from the eye, but they both feel like they are straining really hard and are extremely sensitive to light, even with sunglasses on. Any idea what this may be?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear user
It seems from the history that your husband had conjunctivitis to begin with which has progressed to involve the cornea leading to keratoconjuncitvitis. Keratoconjunctivitis is very common finding in viral and chlamydial conjunctivitis.

The disease requires treatment for 4-6 weeks and it usually runs a chronic course. However the disease can be effectively treated and usually no permanent sequelae occur with effective treatment. The treatment is mainly by antibiotic eye drops, antiinflammatory eye drops and sometimes steroid eye drops.
Hence you require consultation by a ophthalmologist for eye examination and treating depending on the severity of the disease.
Thank you
