I have recently been diagnosed (at 53) and am trying to learn all I can. One issue I have is that my eyes are _very_ sensitive to irritants - makeup, dust, any kind of spray, wearing my contacts too long. I haven’t been diagnosed with any specific allergies, but when I’m exposed to these things I get sinus headaches that last for days, and there seems to be nothing I can do for them. I have had dry eyes in the past, but that doesn’t seem to be an issue now. It might be related to my tear ducts.
Besides wondering if anyone else has experienced this, I’m also very worried about possibly having to have injections. It’s not the actual injection that I fear but the aftermath of having things put it my eyes that will most likely irritate them. I can’t bear the thought of days each month or whatever of pain and feeling sick.
I can see by writing this that I need to make an appointment now to deal with this so maybe I can avoid problems now and in the future. Any other input would also be appreciated. Thank you!
