  • Antimycotic eye drops? (or ointments/gel)

    I already created a thread in which I speculated about Candida potentially being the cause for my dry eyes.
    However, since it seems very difficult to actually verify this idea I am going to ask my doctor to simply prescribe some antimycotic eye drops so that I can test wether or not it changes anything about how my eyes feel.
    Considering that I (and probably many others) took antibiotics and other stuff over long periods of time it at least seems worth a try to test the effect of antimycotic eye drops.

    However, the major question is wether or not it really is worth a try: Do you guys know anything about possible side-effects? What are the risks when using antimycotic eye drops?
    Of course, I'm going to ask my doctor but I want to have as much information as possible on this matter.

    Thanks in advance for anyone trying to help!
