Hello Dr. Lange,
It was nice of you helping us all. I want to know whether any supplements help me. To give a history of my case,I had Lasik done on both my eyes 6 months ago. Before that I had a retinal hole in my right eye which was found during a routine checkup and was lasered. I got my lasik done in India and because of work I had to move to australia after 15 days of Lasik. After reaching here, in 4 days my right eye got red and had severe photophobia. When I visited the Optometrist here in Australia, she said that it was Corneal Edema and gave me an emergency referral to an opthamologist. Since it was new years eve, the eye clinic was closed for 5 days, so I had to visit the emergency. They thought that it might be an infection and I was put on antibiotic and anti inflamamtory drops immediately. As soon as I started the drops, my eye redness and photophobia were gone. After 5 days I visited the ophtamologist and she said that it was anterior uveitis, started Prednisolone drops and ran through lot of blood tests and x -rays. All tests were negative and since the inflammation was still there after 3 weeks, I was aggressively put on prednisolone drops (one drop every hour) and referred to an Uveitis specialist. When I visited the Uveitis specialist after a week, she said it was not Uveitis but the pigment cells which the Iris emit. To cut my long story shot, there was no definite conclusion of the problem I got and I was on Prednisolone drops for 4 months. I stopped Prednisolone drops 2 months ago and during my checkup last month my eye was fine. After that from the last fortnight, I have red and itchy right eye and when I consulted the optometrist, she said that I have dry eye from Lasik and I have to manage it somehow by drops and warm compress. She also said that I have astigmatism and should start wearing glasses for that and my eye needs to recover from teh prednisolone drops. My work consists of working on a computer minimum for 8 hours a day under high fluorescent lights. My condition is worse when I am at work.
Can you please suggest me some supplements that can help me.
