    Hi
    I am affected by red eye for almost two years and used 3 to 4 steroids prescribed by doctors( But then I was not aware of the rebound effects it can cause ) and one of this steroids (Fluorometholone and Tetrahydrozoline HCl) has really caused some damage in my right eye. On 23rd June I had color Fundus Photography on both eyes And luckyly the test shown that it is not rebound effect which I am suffering from. And after some trail and error I have found that it is nothing but Cigarette smoke which is casuing all those problems. That is I am an eye allergy patient.

    now my medicines are Alcaftadine 0.25% and systane.
    How much they can help me to get rid of this allergic problem?
    "In fact I would like to know if eye allergy is curable?

    And I have heard that by injecting the allergen agent into the eyes starting with a low amount and gradually increasing the amount immunity can be achived. Is it a option for me to Inject tobacco in this way, while tobacco is poisonous. If no, than what are the alternative treatments. Do not advice to give up smoking. I am not being arrogant here I know it shall be impossible for me.

    Thanks
    Jojo
