Keratitis

My optometrist recently diagnosed me wtih Keratitis. It came about from my contact lenses. I no longer wear them, but i have noticed that my vision in my right eye is blurrier than that of my left. Is this just a regular symptom of keratitis because me cornea is swollen or is this indicitive of serious corneal damage?

Re: Keratitis

I think it might be worth having this checked by an Eye Specialist. I have had problems with a Corneal Ulcer, which actually is Ulcerative Keratitis in my left eye and keratitis in my right eye, the right eye was similar, and possibly the start of an ulcer on this eye too. If you read my threads, you will see this has caused me a lot pain, redness, vision problems etc, which I still have.
I would advice you to have it checked out again.

An optometrist IS an "eye specialist".
