Im new to this post. I have had serious issues with dry red itchy burning eyes for years now. I have been to eye doctor after eye doctor and nothing has helped. Recently my doctor put me on pred forte, 3x a day i only put in twice, if at all. The other day he stated my pressure was high in both eyes (higher in left):(. I DID put pred forte in 2 hrs prior to appt. I have been very distraught since because the thought of glaucoma scares me.
He stated there was some damage in left eye, did NOT dialate me so how would he know there is damage? My question is how long of pred forte use before damage is done? Is there a chance of a False Positive? I have NOT used drops that long. I also stopped cold turkey since learng of high pressure. Which dr stated To STOP.
My left eye i do see slightly blurred (like I have a piece of lint on my eye lash that wont come off) i have a pinguacula just around the cornea, am i seeing this?
Can someone please give me answers? Thank u
