Eye infection, and "trash" or something in the eye

Discussion in 'Eye-Care' started by Tuomas Koskinen, Jul 15, 2006.

  1. I was to the doctor, because the half of my other eye is totally red, and it
    feels like there is some "trash" or "piece" or whatever in my eye. It
    bothers me all the time. I´ve had it for 3 days now. The problem is the
    eyedoctor did not find anything unusual in the eye. She mensioned the eye is
    swollen in a spot. Also she says there has been something in the eye, but it
    has gone away. Also she prescribed me some gel to put in the eye, because of
    the infection. But the problem IS :
    I still feel like there´s the same "trash" or "stuff" in my
    eye, it feels like a short piece of hair or something.
    Is it common to FEEL that there is something unusual
    in the eye when having an eye infection in this case ?
    Please Help !

    If you have a corneal or conjunctival abrasion/erosion you'll have a
    foreign body sensation until it heals up. Many times I'll see a
    patient who is positive he/she has a foreign body in their eye
    and actually it's due to an abrasion or break in the cornea.
    This fb awareness should resolve when your infection heals.

    Could possibly be due to a small fb caught up in the upper
    lid but I'll bet it's due to your corneal ulcer/infection.
