Eesh. I can understand him/her being upset but I think that's an overreaction. Permanent damage from 2 months of use? Hmmmm. I sure wouldn't be giving up hope that fast.

Will them get better in time? Or is it gonna be worse and worse until my whole eyes are red? For ever?
FOR EXAMPLE. Some Clear Eyes products (not all) are preserved with benzalkonium chloride. This is a very toxic preservative. Suppose part of your problem is a reaction to that preservative? It happens. In that case you would have to be careful not to use any other eyedrops with that preservative, whether over the counter or prescription.
Then why on earth did s/he tell you you have permanent damage, if they don't really know anything about it? Shame on your doctor for frightening you like that. Very unfortunate.
The doctor could not help me with my questions about rebound hyperemia
Oh my gosh I am so jealous. Here there are a ton of red-eye products on the shelves and their labeling can be very misleading and confusing. Some of them even claim to be dry eye drops. They really ought to be banned or at any rate not sold without an Rx.
because we don't have red-eyes-products here in my country...
