    I had eye infection 4 weeks ago but it went away and I just had my
    eyes examine today. my eye doc told me he saw signs of previous
    infection such as corneal scar and pannus in the lower part of the
    cornea. he told me to come back when my eyes get red again and he'll
    give my eye drops to treat it. he felt i didn't need the eye drops
    since my eyes were quiet that day. Should i be concerned?

    This condition is the result of considerable mental strain. In order
    to relieve it, you must immediately go outside and gaze into the sun
    for 1/2 hour. Then, you put your left foot in. Then, you must cover
    your eyes with the palms of your hand for 1/2 hour. Then you take
    your left foot out.

    You should not be concerned about the eye condition, but more about
    the considerable mental strain that you must surely be suffering.

    Pannus is like a thin scar and is the effect of healing from previous
    infection or lack of oxygen to that part of the cornea. Like any scar, it
    is not an active condition, has no treatment and will not get worse. The
    doctor's advice is wise: if you have future signs of infection, get the
    infection treated while active to prevent future pannus and future scars.

    Careful now, someone might not get the sarcasm. Or worse, believe you.
