Same here. It started after I had cataract surgery a few months ago. The doctor gave me Acular LS eye drops for the discomfort but could only use them for 4 days. Going back for followup w/doc Monday.
My discomfort is similar to when I first put in contact lens. Will follow your post.
I started noticing the discomfort in my left eye about 3 days after having laser surgery. The "something in my eye" usually goes away eventually but while I am experiencing the discomfort, I am ready to pull my eye out. I dig things into my eyelid, trying to make it go away. This is a slow means of torture to say the least. This last bout is leading to insanity so I am going to try to get into see an eye specialist again. The last time I saw him he pulled the eyelid back and wasn't able to find anything. The eye was good for almost 1/2 year from that time. I sympathize with anyone experiencing this discomfort and I can only hope that there is a cure. I also notice that prolonged staring into the computer at excel sheets, etc. has initiated the problem. If anyone has any help for me I would be glad to hear from you.
Look up previous posts on dry eye on this forum. All the info. is excellent.
FourEyes You do not need to jump into a $1200 MRI. It is much easier, more productive and quicker to just get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with your Eye MDs diagnosis. You might see a neuro-ophthalmologist. Find one at www.aao.org

I thought I was the only one. I had cataract surgery when I was a baby and I am 25 years old, still dealing with the same issue. When I went to two different doctors, they pretty much treated me as if I didn't know what I was talking about, said there was nothing wrong, gave me eye drops, sent me home, and I felt like my visits were in vain. money wasted obviously, nothing helps!
I even looked in the mirror, stuck my finger in my eye, but no matter what, still feels like something is on my eye. Every time I blink, it hurts, and I just want to cry.
