Red eye, watering

I have been having a red eye for the past week. When i visited my doctor on Monday, she prescribed Ketomar eyedrops along with lubricating Optive eyedrops. My vision in the left eye (red eye) has become cloudy over the past few days. Yesterday (thursday), I met her again and she asked me to quit using Ketomar and use Lotepred eyedrops. Right now, I'm finding it very hard to keep my left eye open. As soon as I step into an area with bright lighting, my eyes hurt for a while and start watering. The burning sensation has become unbearable lately. I am unable to look at tv or computer screens and am forced to confine myself to dark areas.
