My eyes have been very scratchy feeling and right eye lid twitch for over 2 weeks, also redness of the eyeball. I treated my eyes for a few days with moist cloth and Baush & Lomb over the counter solution to clean the eyes. This morning I woke up with right eyelid crusted over and knew I needed to call my doctor. My internist called in a prescription which I began this afternoon: tobramycin-dexameth ophthamalic suspension, 2 drops in each eye every 4 hours. How long will it take until my eyes clear?
I hope the infection is better by now. Sometimes it may take a little bit longer to clear the infection, if the infection has persisted for a while before antibiotics was started.
By now i.e. 5 days later you should see a vast improvement, but ideally it should has cleared by now.
