Hello doctor,

I rubbed my eye after I felt something inside it. But the white part of the eye has become watery and jelly-like, and the shape of the eye has changed. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

It seems you have conjunctival chemosis. This suggests inflammation of the conjunctiva. The reason could be a chemical injury, trauma, etc. So, I suggest you use soft steroids and lubricating eyedrops thrice daily for three days. Kindly consult a specialist, talk with them, and take medicines with their consent. I hope this has helped you. Thanks and regards.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for your reply.

How to use these two medicines? Also, how many drops from each bottle to use? Please help.



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I suggest you use one drop of each bottle at one time. Maintain a gap of at least five minutes between two bottles. You can use either drop first. I hope this has helped you. Thanks and regards.
