This answer was rated:

I wear gas semi permeable contacts . On my eye right at temporal border of iris and schlera there is a very small blister possibly the border of cornea . I have been using ( one day ) vigamox . My self diagnosis . Is there something better ? Do you think this to be cornea ulcer ? The blister ( ulcer ) does make the schlera red only in its area; radiates maybe twenty degrees .
Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?


Doctor DanB : Is it tender to the touch?



the complete globe and area but no

Doctor DanB : Light-sensitive?


Doctor DanB : It's unlikely this is a corneal ulcer based on your description. Yes, Vigamox is probably the best of the available outpatient antibiotics, but this is probably an inflamed pinguecula. Though because you are a contact lens wearer you are susceptible to serious infections. I would say that if you've been on Vigamox for 24 hrs without significant improvement then you should see your ophthalmologist.

well vigamox about 12 hours first dose yesterday at 800 pm , vigamox works that quick , within 24 hrs?

Doctor DanB : You should see some significant improvement in 24 hrs, yes, with Vigamox.
Doctor DanB : Do you have any other questions about this?

no and correct just saw pictures of it , your right thank you doctor
