Photophobia, sensation of something in the eye ,watery eye severe pain, exhaustion from drop regime, ulcer pain from the toxicity of the drops not being able to work and not been able to drive a car, needing to be in a dark room with no light.

The pain and the photophobia is one of the most painful sides of AK followed by the sensation of something in the eye and the eye drops because of the toxicity if I could remove anything it would be the photophobia and the pain followed by the toxicity of the drops.

Original symptoms presented like conjunctivitis. After treatment didn't work, the symptoms one day made a drastic turn. Extreme pain like a hot fire poker in my eye, light sensitivity was extremely high (needing to black out all windows in my home), and exhaustion.
