It seems from the history that your sister has undergone LASIK surgery and following it she is having redness and irritation of eyes probably secondary to inflammation of pre existing pinguecula.
The treatment of pinguecula is by use of oral antiinflammatory drugs and topical antiinflammatory eye drops.
Hence your doctor is correct in prescribing pain killers.
You can continue them as over his advice.

Thank you
