When I was ~15 I noticed that I had red veins in my eyes. Before that I were too shy to make eye contact and too geeky to care about how I looked so it's possible it started before...
However, now 5 years later it's same and I'm not really sure what do to. At first every doctor said it was allergy despite NO anti-allergy medication helps. About 2 years ago I finally went to an eye-doctor. He didn't say much but he gave me a look that he might know what the problem could be, then he dilated one pupil so I looked more brain damaged than usually. But he just scratched his beard, went 'hmm....?' and prescribed topical steroids. He thought it would remove the redness after 2 weeks of steroids...
After ~1 week it was almost back to normal.
I went to him again with the bad news. This time I got topical steroids and topical antibiotics against Staphylococcus. I have used that very same topical antibiotics against pink eye and asked him why it would help against my every day redness. Apparently the combination of steroids and antibiotics could help.
Which it didn't. (2 weeks on both)
After that he said there's nothing we can do about it. Kinda sad for hearing I left the clinic. A few months later I called them to get a copy of my journal, the lady in the phone said the doctor had given me the diagnosis blepharitis. Kinda confused since he never told me that in person I ran to my computer and googled it... I did have "Crusting at the lid margins, this is generally worse on waking.", sometimes "Cysts at the lid margin (hordeolum)." (but only very small)
Eyelid cleaning and warm compress got rid of the crusting, fewer "hordeolum" but the redness remains...
A month ago I heard of ocular rosacea and still wonder if it's possible that I have it. I have tested the lid cleaning but not any medications. My previously eye doctors just say "viral blepharitis" since the topical antibiotics didn't work.
What do you think?
