Hi there I'm really needing yor help as im becoming
Patient :Hi there. I'm really needing yor help as im becoming desperate! I'm 21 years old, female in Australia. Around 6 months ago I had a bad case of conjuctivitis (left eye glued shut in the morning etc.) I was given clorsig drops by my gp and symptoms went away (stayed on drops for 5 days). Anyway to make a long story short, it has come back around 15 times in the same eye over the last 6 months. I have tried chlorsig drops, chlorsig ointment, tobrex drops and ointment, patanol (as opthamologist thought it may be allergies), acular, and have also tried eye lubricating drops. The infection only comes back in the left eye and has only moved to the right eye once or twice throughout the six months. I was referred to an opthamologist at around the 4 month mark and have had two blood tests and urine tests. Everything came back normal and chlamydia and aids came back negative. I should mention, when I do get an attack there's only the slightest bit of pus in the corner of my left eye and my lashes are not stuck together. The only time my lashes were stuck together was the first time I had an attack and ever since there's been hardly any pus. When I do have an attack my eye is red all over, it's very hard to see out of and I have noticed that the vision in my right eye has deteriorated. I've been to an optometrist at the start and I could read to the 4th line of the eye test and now I can only get to the second. I'm really looking for some help as im getting very worried. I've been to over 20 doctor visits and 3 opthamologist appointments and they just keep telling me to wash my hands and to not touch my face. Ps: I have chucked my makeup and have not worn it in 3 months and I am very hygienic. I always ensure my hands are washed and bring disinfectant hand gel with me everywhere. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon! Olivia.
