Corneal Ulcer/Infection

I have been battling a corneal ulcer and infection since Feb 1. It all started with a contact lens I was sampling. It has been the most frustrating thing I have ever gone through. Doc has put me off work since the 1st of March and not back to work yet. The ulcer is smaller, but my vison is very blurry and that worries me although when they check my vision, I see better w/o my glasses out of that eye. I am using Vigamox and Cefazolin x3 hrs while awake and Tobramycin ointment at night. Have been doing this for over 1 month.
Wondering if anyone can give me a clue as to how much longer I might have to do this? I am also still a bit light sensitive.

Re: Corneal Ulcer/Infection

it sounds like a viral infection and antiviral meds are needed
