I need a victrectomy to close a macular hole. When I went for the diagnosis, eye drops were inserted. Yes, the eye drops stinged. . However I experienced a excruciating pressure in my ear canal for several seconds. Until it passed, it was unbearable. However, in the other ear, yes it stingd, but no pressure-like sensation.
I have allergies to preservatives. The surgeon suggested said because there is a lot of drops to put in the eye before and after the surgery, he will no do it if I experience this sensation in my ear drum
Can you please advise what is the sensation I am experiencing?
Occasionally, I take preservative free eye drops. It is without incident. No stinging, no sensations in ear canal
