Eye irritation for long time



Submitted by Jackfin KC on Mon, 03/30/2020 - 18:29
Did you perform any surgery for the eyes?
Do you suffer from pre-existing illnesses in the eye?


Do you suffer from any diseases in the body?
Do you use any eye drops?

Due to lockdown as a result of covid19, I was unable to go to the hospital and i consulted local medical store by explaining that i have irritation in my eyes and i used to have conjunctivitis earlier, he gave me:

OFROX (ofloxacin 5ml)

Do you wear Contact lenses or Eyeglasses?

I use my glasses only when working in my laptop and while in classroom if i sit at the last few benches.

Rt:  -0.50D

Lt: -0.75D





During the summer season, my eyes used to feel some kind of irritation when i was a child. It continued for few years when i was 13-14-15-16 years then it vanished.

3 years back i developed same problem and dr said it was conjunctivitis. Again I feel the same kind of irritation now.

Currently, sometimes my right eye feels itchy sometimes left but not both eyes at same time.

I would be very glad if u could comfort my eyes.





Thanks for your Question

First of all you have to stop using ofloxacin as this eye drop is an antibiotics and is used only for bacterial conjunctivitis and it is extremely unlikely to have bacterial conjunctivitis for 3 years.

Irritation for this long time is mainly caused by dry eye syndrome. Use lubricant eye drops 3-5 times a day and for severe itching you can use allergy eye drops such as patanol eye drops.
