Are you talking about Herpes Zoster or Herpes Simplex of the eye?
My eye doctor only said it was a herpes virus. On the paperwork she gave me to give to my health insurance she wrote "herpes dermatritca" (I might have mispelled it). Thanks.
Just researched the medicine I was prescribed (acic-opthal) is used to treat herpes simplex. Thanks again!
If you researched you will see that there are many types of herpes simplex and many forms of eye problems so it is impossible to generalize. There is herpes simplex keratitis primary infection, secondary infection, geographic ulcers, keratouveitis, etc.Some forms of H simplex eye disease go on for years.
The very simplest form clears in 2-3 weeks but has a 50% chance of recurrence within 5 years. You will need to get your specifics from your ophthalmologist.
Thanks for your time and knowledge.
Best of luck. The treatment of all forms of eye herpes simplex have improved dramatically over the last 5-10 years.
