Customer Question
I currently have shingles...

I currently have shingles around my right eye, a very bad cold and now conjunctivitis in my left eye. Could there be an underlying cause of contracting all 3 at the same time? And should i be worried? This is the 2nd time in 5 weeks ive had shingles

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

My vision is fine, no issues there
