I have what seems like an eye infection and it started 8 weeks ago with sticky gritty eyes. I wake up in the morning with extreme yellow stickiness and crustiness and it clears during the day though my eyes feel dry and gritty. I have been to numerous doctors and have taken eye drops and ointments for conjunctivitis. I have had swabs done for bacterial, chlamydial and viral conjunctivitis but all negative. Doctors are at a loss so think it might be an allergy to cream/ shampoo. It is frustrating because I cannot wear eye make up or lenses and they are quite itchy. i hope my vision does not get affected and I hope this does not lead to any long-term scarring. What does anyone recommend I do? I have been to the doctor about 4 times about this and cannot keep running back and forth as I work.. it is very frustrating.
Please suggest!!!
