Recently I got an itchy eye while on my iPad it itched a lot, and I got some allergic eye drops in my eyes. I used it for a few days and noticed my eyes were very red, sore, itchy, gritty, and sticky. My vision got blurred in my left eye, and this is where the itch started first. Consulted a doctor, and he prescribed Chlorsig eye drops. I have been using this for a day and a half, but I noticed that my eye is still slightly blurry, dry and sticky and sensitive to light. I feel like putting drops in my eye and after 10 minutes it is dry again. I am worried.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
You are probably suffering from conjunctivitis, which is not related to your iPad usage.
It will take a week or so for the episode to settle down, and some blurring and stickiness may persist till then. Do not worry.
Use copious lubricating eye drops like Refresh Tears as well as the antibiotics prescribed to you.
Repeat an eye checkup once in three days to review the status of your cornea. Rarely it may spread to the other eye, hence maintain good hygiene by frequent hand washing and use of sanitizer.
I hope this helps.
