Likely normal: Corneal ulcers respond well to topical antibiotics. Most are due to contact lens misuse - so be careful in the future. The only risk you face is if the ulcer is dead center on the cornea in which case the scar remaining after treatment will cause some degree of visual distortion. Discuss this with you ophthalmologist who you should be seeing for a corneal ulcer.
