Daughter has serious bacterial infection

Posted , 3 users are following.

My Daughter had pain in eye and attended A&E on Sunday and was diagnosed with corneal abrasion, by the evening was in severe pain and lost vision went back and has been told she has corneal ulcer. She has drops every hour, severe pain and sees specialist every day. She has permanently lost vision and they have been working to save eye. Bacteria appears less and she will need surgery in a few weeks. Has anyone had experience of this.

    This is strange that bacterial infection caused vision loss. What bacteria is this ?

    I have had exactly the same. A corneal ulcer is excruciating and if it gets infected needs immediate treatment.   Great to hear the infection is clearing.  What sort of surgery is going to be done?

      Hi, we are not sure, as the amount will depend on if they can save the ey, as she can still see light from dark. May I ask if you lost any vision and if you had hourly eye drops if it was for an extended time frame. Thank you for your reply.
