Actually, this all started with a diagnosis of the beginnings of macular degeneration at my eye exam in April 2011. Then about a week to 10 days ago I got this black dot floating around in the vision of my left eye. After researching I'm sure it's what is referred to as a floater and I received some helpful info on a previous post in the Eye Care forum. Now suddenly, 6 days ago my left eye, the same one with the floaters, started feeling like there was mucus blurring the vision. I took my contacts out. The next morning my eye lid was puffed up and there was what I would call puss in the corner of that eye, even a little greenish in color.
I had some antibacterial ointment, Erythromycin, and started putting that in. Over the past 5 days I have used that and have also used a hot wash rag over the eye periodically throughout the day/evening. The eye itself looks clear and perfectly fine with no redness or anything, and there is no soreness. I tried to call my eye doctor today but it looks like I won't be able to contact her until after the holiday.
Do you have any advice?
