My left eye is watering continuously, not sure if it is dust or eyelash hair that is in. It is troubling me a lot since yesterday morning.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. I had a look at the photo you sent (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is a bit blurry, and unfortunately, if there is a foreign body or an eyelash embedded under the upper eyelid, it will not be visible in the photo. Is your lower eyelid swollen by any chance? I could only see one eye in the photo, so I could not compare.
The treatment options you have are if there is someone with you right now. You can attempt to evert the upper eyelid with your finger and ask them to have a look with a torchlight.
Secondly, you can fill a clean bowl with water and dip your eye into it with your eye open and blink a few times to dislodge it. Thirdly, I noted that you are already on lubricating eye drops, so you can use it every hour or so to dislodge it. If you notice that the lower eyelid is swollen, you will have to use an antibiotic eye drop as it might be a lid infection. Send me a photo of both eyes so that I can compare them.
Thank you doctor,
I have attached the file.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
From the second photo you sent (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it appears that the lower lid is slightly inflamed. It could likely be meibomitis or a hordeolum.
Use Moxifloxacin eye drops (Moxiblu) every three hours from morning until night and Moxifloxacin eye ointment at night, both for five days. A hot compress using water and a paper napkin thrice a day for three days will help. If the irritation persists despite the treatment, you will need to be examined. But try the treatment I suggested earlier first.
