Hi Everyone,

I am hoping you could help me out with a situation that happened on the weekend. On Friday evening I went to my family Dr who perscribed diprosalic lotion for dryness of my hands. I was watching TV and my vision became blurry and decided to check them out on the computer and had triple vision. I then took a warm shower and rinsed my eyes out thoroughyl which made them a little better but not 100% I called the hopsital who told me to come in right away so they could check my eyes out. I ended up waiting 4hrs for them to tell me to look at a eye chart read the letters and tell me to see my eye dr in the morning. I went to the eye dr who checked my eyes and confirmed that they where fine. I left the eye dr and thought I had sunglasses which I did not but I was there last patient and they closed by the time I went back inside the mall. It was a bit sunny but I had fairly dark tints on my car and figured I would just squint my way home.

My visions is about 99% there with just a slight bit of blurriness left but my main concern is that my eyes kinda hurt not deep pain almost like when you have a bad headache and your eyes hurt without the headache. The pain started on Sunday one day after my eye dr appointment.

My questions are
1) Could I have burnt my eyes by running to warm of water when I was flushing them?
2) Could I have caused damage to my eyes when I drove home after my eye dr appointment? (He used eye dialation drops?)

Ingredients in drops
0.5 mg betamethasone(as dipropionate USP) 20 mg salicylic acid USP

I am usually a normal calm person but when it comes to my eyes I am very peranoid.
Thank you for your time
