How is Herpes simplex treated ?
Herpes simplex eye infection can be a sight threatening condition but if the infection is treated promptly it is not usually serious.
Antivirals such as Aciclovir in an ointment or tablet form is used in the early stages to treat the condition. In those unfortunate enough to have frequent recurrences, tablets may be used long term to prevent a recurrent infection. Sometimes steroid eye drops are used in conjunction with anti-viral medication. Your ophthalmologist is the best person to decide the best course of treatment for you.
If you feel you may have any type of infection, you can be seen promptly at Centre for Sight. To book an appointment call 01342 306020.
