Re: Pain behind my eye
Wish I did know, because I have the problem too, and I too have been putting off going to the eye doctor, having to drive home dilated.
It seems more intense than just Dry Eye, right? I think mine's actually getting better and I did have an Ear and Sinus infection when it was worst.
Opthalmologists prescribe so many things that "work for most people" can do permanent damage, lowered my vision from 20/40 to 20/50, that I asked a pharmacist what's good for inflammation, who said Ibuprofin, so I've been using that along with my allergy pills, and the worst pain has gone away. One eye still feels swollen when I first get up, and like a tear drainage may be too narrow or something. A male doctor had suggested punctal plugs, which can't be removed if they're causing trouble. You have to wait for them to disolve. I have metabolic drainage problems, whatever that is, due to low thyroid. Maybe ask for time to look up possible side effects? Especially if you're going to have to make another appointment anyway. Please keep us posted, and good luck.
P.S. Some meds aren't even licensed for eyes, and they prescribe them "off-label" because they "work for most people". I found out too late.
