hello
If you get dust or debris in the eye, do not rub it as this could cause abrasions and damage the eye. Your body's natural tears or a sterile eyewash are best for washing away any debris.

Hello Anil,
It colud be a minor problem but you have to make sure you dont have any foreign body in the eye so it would be better to visit a doctor rather than just putting eye drops.you can put antibiotic analgesic combination eye drops one drop 4-5 times in a day.
Takecare.

My 4 month old litt;e baby boy has an eye infection since birth. He has a green discharge from the eye and constant watering of the eye which is making the skin ont he side of his face very red and sore. He has had two courses of eye drops (antibiotics) which made no difference at all. Lately I noticed that the second eye is becoming infected. I am currently just washing it with sterile water and cotten wool as I have been from birth but still no improvement. Should I see the dr again?

I have angioedema, however, the redness, itching and discomfort I have been experiencing for the past week is growing worse and is only located on the outsides of both underarms. I take doxepin for the angioedema. I have been using three new prescription eye drops for cataract pre/post op: 1. Gatifloxacin 2. Lotemax and 3. Prolensa (my next op is 6/30/14 for my right eye). This new condition only began after my first cataract surgery on 6/16/14 and kept me awake most of last night. I am using neosporone on both sites. Thank you for any information you might offer. CW
