I have had severe red (whites of the eyes) irritated, very light sensititve and sometimes painful eyes for two years... seen many eye specalists and no real answers, tried many different types of drops and no help at all... the only thing that has helped is Pred Forte drops and I have tried many times to wean off slowly without any success... the eyes get redder and redder, more painful and unbearable.. I am currently trying just to put them in once daily, each eye... the doctor checks pressures often, etc... My eye sight so far is good thank God. I know it can't be good using these steriod drops long term.
