Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. Is the cause of your eye infection herpes?
do you know what is causing your eye issue?
A scar on the cornea has difficulty healing. The cornea itself is not healthy and I am seeing a cornea expert.
Ok. Well, there are a number of virus' that can cause both a retinal, corneal and mouth issues like you are discussing. To tell you the truth, as you most likely already know, your eye issue is not a simple, straight forward one......without a complete review of your past medical history, treatment course, various studies, and doing a complete exam personally, it will be almost impossible for me to come up with a meaningful answer to your question of what is going on. I'm sure you can understand the limitations I am facing with "chat" as my only diagnostic tool :-)
That being said, it does sound like you have been getting excellent care. Would you be interested in getting a second opinion/treatment options from other experts who may be able to work together to give you more information on what is going on?
I see you have stepped out of the chat room....
Here is what I would recommend:
At this point I think the best thing you can do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.
If you could tell me what large city you live near and how far it would be possible for you to travel in seeking treatment I would be happy to give you some names. Of course, you could also ask friends and associates or check the internet yourself. Let me know what you would like to do.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
