28yrs/f suffering from redness of right eye(lateral side only) with itching, watering, foreign body sensation & agglutination in morning since 8days..no any history of trauma, injury & foreign body insertion..



This one looks like diffuse episcleritis. Points to be asked in history : 1. is it the first episode 2. any history of joint pains or any other systemic complaints treatment 1. eyedrop FMLT or lotepred 0.5 % QID 2. eye drop CMC 0.5 %QID Generally first episode does not need investigation but recurrent will warranty investigation for an autoimmune disorder/ infective cause like TB.

Good evening This is allergy eye disease. Most common allergan is dust and pollens in our practice. symptoms incluse ITCHING, Redness, watering and whitish ROPY discharge. This is usually bilateral but it may be asymmetric. Evert the lid and look for papillae Prevention: 1. Ask about history of asthma,allergic rhinitis 2. Ask history of previous episodes as usually it is seasonal but may be perennial in few cases. 3. Avoid allergan (dust etc.) 4. Avoid rubbing eyes 5. Cold compresses Treatment: 1. Antiallergic eyedrop like Pataday eyedrop twice daily 2. use lubricating eyedrop like flogel thrice daily 3. use soft steroid like FML : Pulse dose: in severe cases like this

plz provide composition of drugs.
