    eye pain from wed post

    I saw my oncologist yesterday who sent me to the eye dr for my eye swelling & pain. They said I have very dry eyes and suggested different eye drops & an ointment to use at bed. Today they are worse, swollen, hurt like crazy. Why would my eyelids swell if I just have dry eyes? Doesn't make sense to me. I just want to dig my eyes out.

      I would still suggest and allergist. Sounds like opthamologist may be treating symptoms but not cause. You could even be having an allergic reaction to the eye medications.

      I agree w/Nancy. It does sound like an allergic reaction. I hope it gets better soon.
