Hi doctor,

I have had swollen eyelids and red eyes for around 2 months. I have used two courses of Chloramphenicol drops, then an ointment and have been using Sodium Cromoglicate. They still have not improved. Do I need to see an eye doctor?

Hello

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I should see your eye first after then I can guide you or I can prescribe you medicine for your condition. So kindly attach your eye photo here I will see it and let you know about your condition.

Thank you doctor,

They have looked much worse and more red than this. They are not as bad this morning. I have a very gritty sensation, I have washed my eyes out with an eye bath and it does not help.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, there is redness in your both eyes (attachment removed to protect patient identity). We should change your treatment because it is not improving. You should use Moxifloxacine eye drops 6 times a day for 1 week and Azithromycin eye ointment at night time only for a week. Along with this you should do cool compression with ice or ice pack whichever is available for you. That you should use 3 times minimum in a day. So your congestion will be relived and you will be completely fine. Do not worry. Just give me follow up after 5 days regarding your symptoms.
