Seems like something is in my eye
by Rebecca Brown
I had surgery on 11/2/2020 only on my left eye. Toric lens was used since I have an astigmatism. I had a horrible reaction to the eye drops as apparently I have dry eye syndrome which was exacerbated by the preservatives in the three eye drops. Doctor reduced all drops except the steroid and that from TID to BID (11/9). It still stung terribly to use the drops so I used OTC preservative tears practically every 15 minutes! I kept feeling like something was in my eye very similar to a fiber of a hair. Oddly, I would wake feeling ok, thinking whatever it was had worked it's way out. However, within a couple of hours I could feel it in some part of my eye but not always in the same location. I say my doctor but he could not find anything. It has now been 9 weeks, and I still feel have this issue which is only temporarily with eye drops. It's so frustrating! Any ideas?
