Hello doctor,

My husband has a bloodshot eye for a several days already and it is getting worse. We tried to use some drops, but that does not help. What we should do? He said that his vision has become blurred.

Thank you doctor,

Here are the photos. He did not have any injuries. It has started two years ago and comes back once in every five to six months.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • His eyes are congested (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and he is having circumcorneal congestion. It appears to be conjunctivitis as there is so much of discharge.
  • Try using antibiotic eye drops 2 hourly for the first three days and then taper to qid (four times a day).
  • Do warm compresses and take care of lid hygiene.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest Moxifloxacin eye drops. But, you will have to recheck for other diagnosis if there is no relief in three days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.
