eyes red and hurting. dry eyes or something more?
My eyes are red and hurting for around two weeks already. A few days ago I have been to an eye doctor and after looking into the eye with the help of a white and then blue light and also checking the pressure inside the cornea, his diagnosis was that the quality and quantity of the tears is less than what it should be. He prescribed Lephanet cleaning towels to clean the eyes, Vismed artificial eye drops and Dexafree for the inflamation. It has been like three days already that I am using these however there is no improvement. My eyes are still hurting. It gets even worse whenever I go out for a walk. How long should I continue with these medicine before calling the doctor? Also, my boyfriend sometimes have cold sore on my lips that is due to the virus herpes labialis. Could it be that I received it and it affects my eyes? Thanks
