Perhaps: To get accurate answers, you need to ask accurate questions. Just about everything we use in ophthalmology are eye drops--artificial tears, antibiotics, anti-inflammory, anti histamine, steroids, glaucoma meds, etc. Keratitis is a general term for inflammation or sickness of the cornea. There are many types of keratitis, bacterial, viral, chemical, dry eyes, etc.

Yes: See your eye doctor to determine the cause and severity of your keratitis. Based on this, antibiotic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, lubricating or some combination of drops may be prescribed.
