Eye Herpes / Ocular Herpes

Recommended Posts

Does anyone on here have eye or ocular herpes?

I'm concerned I might have it. My right eye gets mildly red sometimes and it twitches a lot. In comparison, the left eye doesn't really get red and never twitches. I imagine the twitching comes from the virus replicating in there.

If you have eye or ocular herpes, can you tell me what it feels like to have it..... the symptoms.... and what you do to treat it?

had my first eye outbreak recently around the same time as a cold sore, treated it with Zovirax eye ointment. Symptoms started with tired itchy eye, then went gritty, after about 48 hrs eye was very very red, watering loads, really watery, sometimes painful, sometimes just irritated, felt like I had grit in it, sticky on waking up. vision was impared, couldn't be around bright lights. Vision has taken about 3 months to get back to 95% good.

Just had another cold sore last few weeks, eye has been a little tired and irritated, but vision has not worsened, so I am hoping my first occular outbreak is goign to be by far the worst???

I'm off to see a specialist on 28th April, so will get more info then.
