I was treated with prescription steroid eye drops to reduce the inflammation. As I have allergies, I was also given prescription allergy eye drops for the corneal ulcer which only had to be used once daily. Results were good.

I was diagnosed approximately 10 years ago of having a corneal abrasion, at my local hospital. I then was referred to an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon). I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer and was prescribed Vigamox, & erythromycin ointment as well as some steroid eye drops. My condition is still on-going and I am running out of options as my chronic corneal ulcer is not getting better and my doctor has been talking about considering a corneal transplant.

I had no pain, but I was sensitive to sunlight and I had a whitish spot on the eye. I was prescribed Vigamox and Epitezan. Seek immediate help, corneal ulcer is a really serious condition.
