Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 7 years ago.
There are many kinds of lesions in different areas of the eyes and so the treatment varies. Could you tell me whether the ulcer was on eye lids or white part of the eye or the central cornea? Thanks.
Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 7 years ago.

All ulcers are treatable. The ones present on the central part i.e, cornea are more risky as may cause loss of vision. I think you had a chalazion on the eye lid which was removed by means of a small surgery. It may recurr but it has a very good prognosis. It does not affect vision and can be removed again. Thanks.

the ulcer eas on the central cornea


Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 7 years ago.

Then it is risky as it may cause opacity in the visual axis and affect vision. In some cases it may get cured and in some it may not. Herpetic corneal are known for recurrence. However, it is still possible to cure it. But sometimes, the response may not be good. Eventuall, a therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty may be done in some cases not responsive to medical therapy. Since, the treating ophthalmologist would be knowing best about your corneal ulcer, he is in a much better position to explain you the future course and prognosis. Thanks and best wishes.
