I recently had a root canal.It wasn't a very good one
,because a part of the filling material was forced
above the foramen apicale (apex) higher than it should be.
Could I develope a fungal infection of the eye caused by CA(OH)2 which is know to be a very good media for east growth ?

Fungal infections of the eye are not common. If you are not immunocompromised the chances of developing such infection is unlikely. If you are experiencing trouble with your vision or a red irritated eye you should see your ophthalmologist.
