appolgies if there are lots of spelling mistakes but i cant really see at the momement.
In aug i had a lot of itchy and swelling to my left eye and i though it was hayfever, after a few weeks it hadnt gone, my vision was furry and it really hurt to open my eye. I went to the local a&e and they said there was nothing wrong with it, but gave me some cream to help it stop itching. A month down the line and i was in agony and it was no better, i went to another a&e, who again couldnt see anything wrong, but were shocked by my lack of vision and refered my yo a specalist at the hospital the next day.
She had a look, said i had a lot of bacteria and it must hurt and gave me some eye drops. Its not really got any netter, but ive moved to a whole new area and its sort of taken a back seat. Ive just made a appt at an opticions as its really bad. I can barlty focus at all, and if i do ( like now i get all headachy and swimmy and feel a bit sick) Im not yet registered with a doc so i cant go there. Im just a bit worried...

I really would go straight to your GP - you can register at the same time - if it is an infection you really do want to get it cleared up. Hope you feel better soon.

You don't have to be registered with a GP to see them, you can register as a temporary patient however, the GP may not have the equipment he needs to see into your eye to give it a thorough examination so I would phone your local hospital and see if they have a drop in eye clinic and go there. I wouldn't leave this any longer either. It must be really distressing for you.
