Will I be able to have clear vision after corneal infection?

Q: I am a 40 years old man who had fungal ulcer in the eye 10 days back. I had irritation/redness/pain over my left eye, so I consulted the doctor and he cleaned my eyes with saline and put bandage on my eye after applying some medicine. The doctor also prescribed Natamysin and Amphotericin B eye drops, which provided relief to my problem. Therefore, the doctor asked me to continue the same for another week. Now, my left eye's vision is not clear. I have blurred/double vision and I ma unable to read with my left eye. Will my eye become normal in some days? What is the treatment for this?

A:It is good that the fungal corneal infection or ulcer is healing. About the vision your doctor will only be able to answer, as it depends on the location of the ulcer and intensity of the lesion. Every corneal ulcer leaves a scar, and if this affects the optical properties of cornea, vision will remain deficient. However contact lenses or glasses could help in some. Follow your doctor's advice meticulously. Use drops properly till the infection is completely routed out.
