Question

 

 

 

Hi,

I have some discomfort in my left eye; some dust particles which entered the eye have been difficult to get rid of. I applied chloramphenicol and got some relief after sleep, though, temporary.

Recently, I discovered a white tissue encroaching into the pupil of my left eye. I worry about the continued use of the chloramphenicol and also about the white tissue in the pupil.

What should i do

Thanks

Foreign body in the eye
