I asked about herpes virus in my eye. I am blind (left eye)

Resolved Question:

I asked about herpes virus in my eye. I am blind (left eye) due to retina detachment. Two years ago I hit the left eye/forehead on a kitchen cabinet. A few weeks later I had a "blind spot" on the right upper corner of my left eye. I had 4 operations to try to save the retina, with no success.
I have been plagued with eye problems ever since. Now, I have a cold sore
and it has traveled in to me eyes (again). Please refer back to my original note sent today @ approx 12:40 today
