my son is five, I brought him to the eye

my son is five, I brought him to the eye doctor last year because I notice he had a white ring around his eye on top of his eye allergies he's been experiencing. he gave me steroid eye drops and told me to use it for 1 week, but it didn't clear it complete it just minimize it..then he prescribe pataday and told me use it once a day. around allergies seasons. this year I notice it but it's not around the whole pupil. it just a little on the upper pupil a thin section on the right eye. but the left is thicker only on the upper pupil.. I was going to make appointment for Thursday so the same eye doctor can look at it. I just need some guidance on what i'm daeling with.

Hello Doctor, My son is suffering from eye allergy(by pollen) since the age of 1yr.He is now 16 yrs old and still the condition is same.The problem starts for the month of Feb to April.Last two years he did not get the allergy but this year the problem started in the month of October. first he was given C Mist for 1 month then as the condition became worse Lotepred-LS was given (started with 4 times for two weeks and gradually decreased to 1 time for 2 weeks.) alongwith C mist.Again problem started so Olopat was given twice daily but with no result so Gatilox DM has been prescribed (6 times for 5 days.5 times for 5 days,4times for 5 days ......gradually decreasing to 2 times for 5 days.)alongwith olopat and a tablet Lecope-Dt for five days.Now, the problem is that my son is complaining about some vision problem like seeing things milky in light at a distance with pain in eyes. He is currently giving board exams so he has to study for long hours. Please suggest: 1.if this condition is due to medicines side effect 2. Will he be prone to serious conditions in his old age due to such medications like cataract or glucoma etc.3.Is any advance treatment available for this problem?

Hello, my son is five years old. He has been spending a lot of time outside lately. I noticed tonight that he has a small jelly like lump on the white part of his eye. A little redness but he said it doesn t hurt and it s not itching. He jas been rubbing his eyes lately due to some pollen but I m not sure. What could this be?

my son got poked in the eye this morning and his eye has been hurting him since, he also says the sunlight makes it hurt worse. Can I put visine in his eye? Also we are planning a trip to a waterpark tomorrow, is he able to go, or will the chlorine make it worse?
