4 days ago my eye started having irritation with my contacts. I took them out but my eye was still irritated. When I woke up I had redness, drainage, and eye pain. No vision disturbances except the left eye is swollen inside and around it. I went and got tobramycin because they thought it was pink eye but my eye is worse. The actual eye is swollen, it is very painful and it won't stop draining. It feels like something is in it but my contacts are intact and I don't see anything. It drains really bad when it is closed and looks the worse when I wake up in the morning. What do you think this is? What questions should I ask the opthamologist to get the right diagnosis?
