I went swimming in a lake one afternoon, and by that night my eye was red, painful, tearing, and hurt with light. I went to the eye doctor and an ulcer was found on my cornea. It turned out to be a bacterial infection that probably found its way in while swimming. The doctor prescribed Vigamox at one drop every hour until the next day and at the next visit was 90% closed. He is adding a steroid drop now to accelerate healing and relieve the pain and itching and the feeling that something is in my eye. If something like this, happens to you, go to the doctor right away!

Don't delay. When you have bacteria in your eye, every hour counts. My treatment is Zymaxid eye drops every two hours and prednisolone drops every four hours. Don't let some dummy tell you that you have pink eye. You only have two eye with which to see the world. Take care of them.
