I am sorry your wife developed a cornea erosion

how did this happen? usually it takes trauma or eye surgery or overuse of eye drops or steroid eye drops to cause a corneal erosion

sometimes corneal erosions can take many many months to heal

my father currently is healing from a corneal erosion ulcer on one of his eyes after cataract surgery and a history of glaucoma in his eye and overuse of glaucoma eye drops.
