Starting 11 days ago, it felt like there was something under my right upper eyelid. I wear contact lenses, but change them religiously every month, as prescribed, and never sleep in them. Five days later, I had a routine appointment with my optometrist to correct my glasses/contact lens prescription. When I described the irritation, she looked under my eyelid, said that I had papillaries, and recommended using a hydrogen peroxide solution for cleaning my contacts. Two days after that, I had my routine semi-annual appt with my ophthalmologist. My eye exam was normal, but when I told her about the irritation, she looked under my eyelid, said that I had GPC, and just told me the same thing, to change my contact lens solution.
After reading about GPC, I immediately stopped wearing my contact lenses, and am on day 3 of glasses only. But I'm still experiencing irritation under my eyelid, the undereye area of that eye is puffy, and I'm worried that there is some ptosis of that eyelid. Should I get a second opinion, and are eye drops warranted? Is it typical for the undereye area to be implicated? Same with ptosis?
