Hello Doctor,


I've noticed that my right eye is swollen, and there's a slight sensation of itching. I'm concerned about this and would appreciate some advice on what might be causing it and what I should do to alleviate the discomfort.

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


You may begin treatment with Lacryl Ultra eye drops in the right eye (OD) three times a day for a duration of two weeks.   This treatment may be prescribed to address an ocular condition or dry eye syndrome, but a comprehensive evaluation by an ophthalmologist is essential to confirm the diagnosis and determine the most appropriate course of action.
