You need to see this other specialist asap - this is imperative to stop the scarring process. Keratitis has many causes - if yours is do to bacterial or viral or fungal infection - that needs to be treated in order to reduce the chances of scarring and save the area of the cornea that overlies the visual field - the center of the eye where the pupil is seen as well as the surrounding area. Do not take no for an answer - if the specialist cannot see you then call others or go to a specialty hospital and show up in their emergency room.

Here you can find a list of 37 doctors that are eye specialists within a 25 mi radius of Blair.- they actually all seem to be in Omaha but have various hospital affiliations.
