Tiny tiny tiny scratch on my eye and it really hurts!
Opthalmologist prescribed optical bacitracin and artificial tears, and he said warm compresses should help, but I'm not getting relief from warm compresses or Advil.
Tried flushing with cold water and cold compresses earlier; they did not help either. I have a prescription for eye steroids that the doc said I probably didn't need (he suggested I not fill it right away so I didn't, he said that my eye should heal in a couple of days with the bacitracin and the eyedrops)... would the steroid stuff help with the pain?
Have any of you ever had a scratch on your eye? Any advice?
Embarrassed to be asking for advice with a condition that will almost certainly resolve itself in a matter of days.
