Hi,

The left side of my left eye is red and painful. Can't go to check up due to the lock down. But have access to a pharmacy near by.

Please what should I do. Hope the attached image helps.

Thank you

Thanks for your Questions

Most likely it is episcleritis and you can use NSAIDs such as Nevanac eye drops or Voltaren Ophtha, 2-3 times a day for 1 week. Use also lubricant eye drops at least 5 times a day.

Sometimes you might need corticosteroids eye drops such as pred forte eye drops but this can be used only under doctor supervision.
