Re: Shingles in Eye
Sorry to hear about your brother and his eye. I, too, had facial shingles that went into my eye, back in July of this year! It's been a bad experience, but I've had good medical care. I see an opthalmologist every 3 to 4 weeks and am now seeing a corneal specialist. I developed epi scleritis (inflamation of the white portion of the eye) and am on prednizone drops for the 4th time now! Also, I was put back on Valtrex (antiviral medication) by mouth and my eye is getting better, but due to alot of dryness, I use Systane drops in between the others. Thank God the cornea is ok due to good medical attention. I urge you to see a good opthalmologist, who has treated shingles of the eye--God Bless!
