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?

In brief: 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.
