Help! Anybody who have a idea about the herpes eye?

Recommended Posts

My bf is suspected of having the herpes eye infection. He had been having all the herpes eye symptoms but light sensitivity for about 2 weeks. In the beginning the doctor said it was conjunctive eye infection and it will be healed in few days and then it was a week and then we were told it will be about 2 more weeks. But it never got better and my bf started suffering vision loss in one eye. The doctor prescribed steroid eye drops and it only made it worse. We are new to this. Please help if you know anything about how to prevent it getting worse. Please help!

Hi hope,

Steroid medications are not recommended for herpes outbreaks and I assume this holds true for ocular herpes. This site says that anti-virals are useful in reducing recurrence and they offer natural alternatives also. To the right under the 'Facts Sheet' section is 'Ocular Herpes', Check out that link.
