Herpes eye infection: There are two main families of herpes viruses: herpes simplex and herpes zoster. Herpes zoster is the virus that causes chicken pox and shingles. Herpes simplex can be divided into two types: one that is sexually transmitted and causes genital herpes and one that causes cold sores/fever blisters. All can infect the eye and cause vision loss. Find out from your doctor which you have.
