Scar on cornea after shingles in the eye

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had shingles almost a year ago in my eye, head and forehead. I have been attending the eye clinic over the past year and have only just been told that I have a scar on the cornea of my right eye, my eyesight is ok thankfully, but i have discomfort every day, itching and my eye often feels sore. it is depressing to know that I will probably have this forever, so it is something I have to get used to living with, as eye drops,  gels etc do not work! Does anyone else suffer with this?

    I had the same issue and experince. The doctor didn't help much. He asked me just to use eye drops and that's it.

    please anything should help!
