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

The one thing you don't want to start doing is self treating with very dangerous eye drops, such as visine and clear eyes, which will certainly make it worse. Start with an ophthalmology exam and go from there. Feel better. ...Read more
