My 34 year old daughter woke up yesterday with her left eye slightly swollen, blurry vision, but no discharge or itchiness.
Her ophthalmologist today said that she has two spots on her cornea and wants to see her again in three days. He said he thought it could be a virus but couldn't rule out a bacterial infection. He didn't prescribe any medication. What could be the problem?

Hello Mike I'm Dr Chip

Did the ophthalmologist suggest that she may have gotten something in her eye?

No.

Did he say anything more specific than spots on her cornea?

Ask Your Own Eye Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No. Just that he thought it was important to monitor this over the next few days, and to call him right away for any significant changes.

OK

Sounds like she may have had a corneal abrasion and those heal without any scarring

Without any crusting or discharge it wouldn't be a bacterial conjuctivitis

So nothing to serious here Mike

Please let me know if you need any more information

Could it be a corneal ulcer?

I don't think so--the doctor would have noted that if it were
