Why do I have continuous irritation and pain in the eyes?

Q: I am 20 years old. I weigh 56 kg and I am 163 cm tall. I have a problem with my eyes for two months. I have continuous irritation in my eyes. An ophthalmologist asked me to use Richgel tear drops for a month. But the problem persisted. I went to him again and he prescribed me Centaur eye drops to be taken thrice daily and Ciplox eye ointment at night for 15 days. He also told me to rotate my eyeballs clockwise and anti-clockwise as many times as possible in a day. But there is no improvement. I went to him again and he told me that there is oil gland blockage in the eyes. He asked me to place hot salt crystals in a cloth and massage my eyes three times a day with it and continue the ciplox ointment for another 15 days. I had a clear white conjunctiva, which along these 2 months has become yellowish and red streaks can be seen everywhere. Turning the eyeballs hurts me. The pain and irritation in the eyes has also increased drastically. The pain shoots up with 10 minutes of watching TV, PC monitor or even reading. Please suggest some quick remedies that will help me read for my soon approaching exams. Please advise.

A:It seems that you need glasses and that is causing eyestrain due to forthcoming examination. See an optician who can make some glasses for you and he/she will explain its uses. You should not use ciplox drops or do any eye exercises. Only other possibility is you are not getting enough sleep. Use the other drops (not any ointment), which will give you temporary relief like soothing. This is not serious problem. Don't worry. Make sure you read in good light and book should not be very close to your eyes. Wash your eyes with plain clean water and never rub them. You will notice things improve after your examination.
