I am 34 years old male. From few days I am suffering from red eyes with no pus and no draining. Here is my case.
It started in the 1st week of Dec, 2009. It started like burning eyes. The left eye became red (like a blood shot) with little bit irritation as if some foreign particles are there in the eye. It went off in 1 day. On Dec 25th, 2009 it came back again with both the eyes becoming red like blood shots. I got worried and went to a urgent care and met a general physician, he prescribed me Gentak eye ointment and I used it for 2 days and the eyes got well. Now, again it started from few days the eyes becoming red and feels irritating, and this time I went to a ophthalmologist yesterday and he prescribed TOBRADEX and he said vision and everything is good and it seems to be an infection (conjunctivitis). But I don't have any pus or water coming out of my eye, no blurred vision, and my vision is good.
My worry is I had a protected sex with a CSW on 3rd week of Nov, 2009. Is my eye symptoms related to any STD infections. I am very much worried Doctor. Please help me. I don't worry if my eyes are red until I have a good vision, my worry is, If this is caused by any STD. Till now, I have no other symptoms of STDs to write here.
Thank you for your reply. I appreciate your prompt reply. After using TOBRADEX eye onitment, I am feeling better. the redness of eyes is slowing fading away. If you don't mind, I have a question Doctor. Is this bloodshot eyes any way related with HIV ARS symptom? As I am worried about the encounter which was in 3rd week of Nov, 2009, though I had a protected sex (used condom).
I haven't did any oral on her. She did oral on me by having condom on. Yeah I understood it might not be any STD, as I don't have any other symptoms at my genitals. I am concerned about the HIV ARS. Any way, Thanks for answering to my questions. If you think, the red eyes in any way related to ARS, please let me know your comments on that.
