Last Friday on my way home I felt something in my left eye. I rubbed it a little bit ran cold water onto my eye when I got home but couldn't seem to get rid of it. On Saturday night, I went to the emergency room at a local hospital because it started hurting by that time and I became very sensitive to light. The ER doctor told me that I have a corneal abrasion and sent me home and told me to come back on Monday to see an eye doctor. On Monday, the doctor told me I have a corneal scratch and needed to come back again the next day. I got an antibiotic drop to prevent infection. I thought I was going to see the same doctor next day but saw a different doctor.(Same clinic) She told me that I have an abscess in the eye and infection. This shocked me because I didn't hear it from the last eye doctor. I came back the next day to the same clinic and saw another doctor yet again and she told me nothing of the abscess when I asked her and she told me that she wouldn't know if there's an infection unless they collect a sample from my eye and send it to the lab. According to her, the scratch is below the center of the eye and it could develop a scar but it's too soon to determine that. Again I was told to come back the next day. The fourth doctor told me that I have an infection and will develop a scar in the cornea for the rest of my life. Leaving the clinic door I felt very frustrated and confused. For all this time, I've been using the anti-biotic drop for every two hours or so and an anti-biotic ointment 4 times a day for the last three days. I don't see as well as I did with my left eye and until yesterday, my vision was blurrier. My eye still red but a lot less red. I heard redness is the body's effort to send more blood to promote healing. I hope to make good recovery. (Prior to the injury I had 20/20 it's 20/40 for now).I doubt the opinions of the two doctors who told me that I have an infection without having some lab work done on my left eye.Please help. Thanks.
