Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

If you have a difficult to treat case of corneal herpes it would be best to be evaluated by a corneal specialist. Sometimes, even after the virus is no longer actively present in your eye the symptoms and problems can persist.

Dr. Rick :

This is usually caused by your bodies immune system "getting confused" and attacking your corneal/eye as if it was the virus. The treatments for these two variations on the condition are totally different so it is important to make a correct diagnosis of the causative issues at hand. A cornea specialist is the best trained person to do this.

Dr. Rick :

I do not know any eye doctors in Jordan but I am sure in a large city like Jordan there must be a number of them. Talk to your local eye doctors, check Google or just ask around. I'm sure you can find one to help you.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
