It's a bacterial infection

Doug went to the doctor and unfortunately it's a bacterial infection.  They did a culture on it and results won't be available for a few days.  This is serious and could cause blindness.  The doctor had two different antibiotics compounded for Doug to use.  These had to be compounded because the strength is 10x's stronger than anything on the market.  I wish that I had taken my camera and taken pictures of them doing the culture.  It was cool to watch them scrape his eye.  He is putting these two different kinds of antibiotics in his eye every hour.  We will see the doctor again tomorrow.  Hopefully it will be better or they will have results to know what they are dealing with.  Right now his eye looks really bad.  Hoping for some good news tomorrow.
