I developed shingles on the left side of my forehead up into the hairline went to a doctor within 24 hours of the Breakout. This happened while we were on vacation. The original Dr give me an antiviral prescription and a prednisone pill because she was afraid it was going to affect my eye. This happened on Thursday came home and saw my physician on Tuesday, he immediately sent me to an eye doctor. He also took me off the oral prednisone. Saw the ophthalmologist that afternoon. He was very concerned because I had high eye pressure. put me on three different eye drops. And saw me again in 5 days. Eye pressure drop so he put me on prednisone eye drops 4x a day, while still using all the drops for the pressure. Try to shorten this. I am still having issues. Now my vision is blurry in the left eye. He can see the lesion on the cornea. We are now in April. I have been seeing him off and on every 1 to three weeks. Last week he said the pressure my eye was good and to continue with the prednisone eye drops and glaucoma eye drops and see him in 5 weeks. The vision in my left eye is extremely blurry and very itchy. How long can this last, he tells me up to 2 years. Is there anything more I can do. Thanking everyone in advance, Lynn
