Does having keratitis once make you more likely to get it again? I had a really bad case of keratitis, with corneal ulcers. Do i need to be extra careful with my eyes to be sure i don't get it again? .

Does having keratitis once make you more likely to get it again? I had a really bad case of keratitis, with corneal ulcers. Do i need to be extra careful with my eyes to be sure i don't get it again?

.

To : To short answer is a definite "yes." as has been pointed out above, "keratitis" is a rare condition when one looks at the entire population. There are many forms and many causes. A there is typically a "trigger" that can be identified by your eye care professional. Sometimes this trigger may be present forever making recurrence likely (herpes simplex infection / rosacea keratitis). Sometimes the trigger may be easy to control and stop (contact lens wear). Therefore, if it is a factor caused about by your activity (ie contact lens wear), experience tells me you are likely to get it again if you continue with contact lens use. If a patient experiences cornea scaring and vision loss due to contact lens use, i typically recommend an alternative vision correction method. Another episode of infection or inflammation is very likely to lead to more vision loss - in general we should do everything to control preventable forms of vision loss. ...Read more
