Don't be worried: Macular pucker can remain in the mild to moderate stages forever. Most patients never need treatment/surgery. in the absence of visual symptoms I would most certainly not be concerned. Certainly keep follow up with your doctor and report any unusual vision symptoms.

Probably not: If your eyes are not hurting or red, you're probably safe. I would just remove the lenses for the rest of the day and it should be okay to wear them again tomorrow if you have no symptoms. If you do develop pain, decreased vision, or significant redness, you should be seen urgently.

Unfortunately no: Atropine can take a week to washout. There is really not much that will help but waiting.

The only thing they have prescribed me, that somewhat works is Ultravate Ointment. I eventually ran out and I have lost my insurance, so... I guess I am stuck with using Cortisone ointment. Ugh.
