Can you have shingles in the eye?

Re: shingles

Yes you can. I had shingles on my eye lid and the doctor told me it could go into my eye, but luckily it didn't. I was prescribed antiviral medicine and that seemed to help. I still have sharp pain in my eye and I think it has affected my vision. If you think you do have shingles, please go to the doctor immediatley. This can be very dangerous.
