    I had an eye exam yesterday, and after they put the drops in my eye's, I had burning, and stinging, like crazy.

    I bathed my eyes with distilled water after I got home, but still had a gritty feeling in my eye's.
    Plus Pain, achiness like pain.

    Was wondering if anyone else had a Bad Reaction to the Yellow, drops they use, to exam your eyes.

    It gave me a horrible headache too.

    Hi Sharon

    I had a similar experience with an eye exam about three or four years ago. I do remember the stinging eyes and awful headache. My headache was gone by the next morning. I don't know what caused it. I've had eye exams after that and they didn't give me a headache. I don't know why that happened the one time.

    I usually check to see if you are still around when I scan the board. I think that we kind of stumbled onto this board around the same time. I think that we've both done a lot of learning since that time. If you ever write that book I want to read it.

    I am very, surprised to read a post from you, and may I say it is a really Nce Surprise.

    I found out a few others have had this problem, I am guessing it's another FMS, thing.
    We are so Sensitive to things, you never know.

    Yes we have a long History with the PH board, and I am very Happy that you do look for me, lol,

    I do hope all is Well in your WOrld.

    Hug's,

    <Call your eye doctor and tell them what happened

    They may say that others have reacted the same way

    They need to mark your chart that this happened

    I had my eyes checked and they used the drops also. My eyes have hardly any moisture and he did tell me these could burn or sting. They did.

    I used my artificial tears and flooded my eyes when I went home. It really helped.

    My eyes were a little gritty feeling. This passed as I flushed my eyes.
