I was diagnosed with Viral KeratoConjuct 5 months ago. It affected my right eye. I was not able to wear contacts. If I did, my eyes would be uncomfortable and the next day irritated, sort of like an allergy. About 7 weeks ago I started to wear contacts again, but I was having discomfort in the right eye, kind of like an allergy. I only wore contacts from 5-9 hours a day. I have off and on dry eyes since the VKC. I have yellow bumps on my eyelids sometimes, which I was told are clogged glands and common with dry eyes.
I have stopped wearing contacts because I have extreme discomfort (pain!) in my right eye. It seems to be the back of my eye, but its hard to isolate. The pain seems to be worse when I move my eye to extreme, or sometimes if I focus or strain hard, it hurts more. The pain seems to go down into my neck from the back of my eye. It can be a dull pain around the back of my eye, or more and more lately, its a piercing pain. My glands in my neck are swollen and I have constant nasal mucus drip in my throat. The musuc drip is mostly white.
My vision seems the same, however I have always been extelemely myopic (-16).
I have been to the GP and ENT, waiting to get back to the Opthamalogist in a couple of weeks.
The ENT did a sinus CT and nothing major showed. I have not been given antibiotics, because nothing showed up.
One of my theories is a sinus infection. Could that cause pressure on the back of my eye? What about dry eyes, can they cause this kind of pain and response? Could it be the virus acting up? Any advice would help. I don't know what to do.
