This is Dr. David
if you truly have herpes of the eye, you don't want to use over the counter eye drops
you need to see an eye doctor and get oral antiviral prescription pills and prescription antiviral drops like ganciclovir drops or trifluridine drops
herpes of the eye is very serious and can cause blindness if not properly treated.
why do you think you have herpes of your eye?
