Few days-wk: If it is a traumatic ulcer from direct trauma 2 the cornea and not infective, i would add tobramycin/stearoid oint and patch over nite. Then tobra/stearoid 4-5x/day. Oint and patch @ nite. Continue untill gone, stop patch when feels good but oint @ nite. B sure to have opthalmology look at it before rx his/her rx may be different than mine.
