A "problem focused" history can be acquired with ONLY a brief HPI, and no ROS/PFSH.
an "expanded problem focused" history requires a brief HPI and ONE ros. If the Eye is documented in the HPI and the ROS, then you have the EPF Hx.
So to answer your question, I'm thinking it would be HARD to get only a problem focused Hx in your case unless the ROS is just not documented. Just make sure you are not double dipping since you are dealing with the same system!
In this case it would actually be pretty easy to document the HPI and ROS in one lump statement.
"Pt c/o of redness and watering in rt eye for three days. No colored drainage, no pain, no blurred vision. No complaints in lt eye." (first sentence HPI, second is ROS)
