Zylet : Zylet is an unusual medication for a corneal ulcer. And infect, it is the wrong medicine for you. You are already on gentamicin and the active antibiotic in zylet is tobrmycin which is a same class of medicine as gentamicin. You will be served better with ciprofoloxacin than zylet. Zylet also has steroid in it, which makes it a wrong medicine for corneal ulcer. You said you went to see "opt", i presume that you mean optometrist. I strongly recommend seeing an ophthalmologist. If you can find a cornea specialist that will be better. Good luck. ...Read more

Told yesterday I have corneal ulcer from contacts. Tiny white spot not on iris. Treating with drops. Now have stye on same eye on bottom lid. Worry?

Ulcer is serious: A corneal ulcer can be a potentially sight-threatening problem and should be considered as a serious eye infection. Stop the contact lenses and follow your Eye M.D.'s treatment recommendations exactly. The stye is pretty much self-limited, and will be effectively treated with the antibiotic drops you are most likely using for the corneal ulcer. Also do hot compresses to the lids four times a day. ...Read more

I have corneal ulcer in my left eye and my vision is a bit blurry. It's being treated. Will my sight return to normal?!?!? TERRIFIED

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. ...Read more

I currently have a corneal ulcer. I would like to know how long will it take to heal? And when will the white spot on my eye disappear?

Patience: Use your antibiotics faithfully, DON'T patch your eye closed, follow up with your Ophthalmologist as scheduled, or sooner if your symptoms worsen. Sometimes an ulcer can leave a permanent scar. It depends on the severity of the ulcer, and the type of organism that caused it. ...Read more

I have a small white corneal ulcer, no pain or discharge just minor dry eye. My doctor cannot see me for 3 days, any tips to get me through till then?

Yes: If it is only related to dry eye, frequent use of unpreserved artificial tears should allow the "ulcer" to heal. If the "ulcer" is not improved in 12 hours, go in as an emergency if they will not see you, find another eye doctor. ...Read more

Should i go to the ER for what i think is a corneal ulcer? Or can i wait a day to go to my eye doctor?

Should i go to the ER for what i think is a corneal ulcer?  Or can i wait a day to go to my eye doctor?

You can wait: Most ulcers of the cornea occur under a contact lens, so remove that right away. Most eye doctors will see you quickly for a suspected corneal ulcer, so go next morning to their office as soon as they open and they will work you in for this type of condition. If you go to an ER you have a good chance of sitting there for several hours before you will even be seen and they will call for eye help. ...Read more
