If you had a personal physician you would not have to go to the ER. Also if your "eye doctor" was a non-MD optometrist and not a MD ophthalmologist you have not had the eye exam your condition warrants.
You need to see a primary care physician tomorrow if possible, also if you did not see an Eye MD see one. In the USA find one at www.aao.org
ok thank you very much for your response.. no i donot have a primary care physician because i do not have health insurance..i checked i went to pal optical and he was not a MD..In morning i will try to get an appointment with opthalmogist.. the midrin is not working at all still have pain in all the areas and my eye seems worse..thank you for your advice
