About a year ago I contracted pink eye and had the discomfort and pain that can be associated with it, it went away and then came back a week later. after the second occurance the discharge and many other symptoms went away, but ever since i have had a variance of eye pain. Every day a constant dull pain is present, some days severe, some days just nagging. It worsens when i wear contact lenses and my eyes become red and bloodshot. Sometimes my eyes burn so I thought it was dry eye, but over the counter drops such as Genteal and Refresh provide NO relief whatsoever. I was put on restasis, provided no relief, punctal plugs, no relief again. Schirmer tests always show that i produce alot of tears. i have also been given prescription eye drops that were described to me as "extra strength visene without preservatives" to see if it was irritation and then my doctor told me he didn't need to see me anymore. so i've been tested for migraines and nothing is helping there either Are there any other problems this could be that are not dry eye or migraines?
