I had laser treatment for narrow angle glaucoma two weeks ago. I’m now experiencing light sensitivity in that eye and my eye continues to water and is red. How can I treat this?
It is possible you still have inflammation following your laser iridotomy. Typically, we treat post-operative inflammation with topical steroids, but the redness and discomfort can return if the steroids are discontinued too quickly.
