I have had red irritated eyes for over 4 years now, I have seen 4 different eyes doctors and no one can give me an answer.
They are not always extreemly red, generally they are a little better during the day and they get worse as the day goes on. One doctor told me if have dry eye but I take eye lube drops everyday and it kinda helps with the irritation but the redness is still there. Sometimes one eye is more red then the other. When I pull the lower lid down it is very red and I am always pulling strands of stuff out of my eye (the doctor says those are dryed tears) I have been on many different eye drops but the only ones that did anything were FML and Tobradex which I was told are steriod eye drops; they made the eyes clear but as soon as i stoped taking them my eyes would start getting red and irritated again. One doctor also told me I have blepharitis and to do warm compresses everyday which i have been doing for months with no help. They are starting to get worse, i am now starting to get headaches and I cant complete a whole day without me having to go home and lay down.
I dont know what to do, i have seen 4 eye doctors and all they do is look at my eyes and tell me to come back in a month. This has gone on for over 4 years. I am only 23 years old and this started when I was 19.
Anyone had a similiar problem or know what I can do to find an eye doctor who can help?
