At noon, yesterday my mother had a swollen eye on her right side, I continued to check with the doctor, the doctor said there was a small object in my mother’s eye and the doctor took action by removing the small object. Then my mother got eye drops for the left while my mother’s eye was sore on the right and covered a bandage. Is that true how to use the drops?
When there is a foreign object in the eye, it can cause complaints to block, red, swollen eyes, and if it causes injury to the eye it can cause other complaints such as pain, glare, and decreased visual acuity.
Therefore, the presence of foreign objects in the eye should be treated immediately. The doctor will extract or take foreign objects in the eye, either by irrigation or with special tools. Furthermore, if there are complaints or other conditions in the eye, the doctor can provide further treatment with eye drops, eye ointments, or drinking medicines.
What eye drops do you mean? We are sorry that you did not mention the name of the medicine, so we also cannot confirm the content, method of use and function of the eye drops. In certain conditions, such as conjunctivitis, the doctor can prescribe eye drops to be used in both eyes, or in the other eye, of course this will be adjusted according to the results of the examination.
Therefore, I suggest that you ask the doctor about how to use eye drops again, or you can also ask the pharmacist where you took the medicine.
