    To say it simple, your eyes cornea may get infection because of the coming bacterium. You need to take great care of it. You could use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to make your eyes get comfortable and clear. You should also have the good rest for the eyes, not sitting in front of the computers for a long time. You should protect your eyes carefully.

    Well, according to some experts, corneal ulcer can be dangerous, and what is dangerous is that it may lead to vision loss. Generally speaking, when the clear coating and cornea has been rubbed or irritated by some bacteria, there will have a small tear or cut in your eyes. And we can say that is eye ulcers. For the causes, blepharitis is one of the most common eye infections and often extremely irritating. And it can just cause eye ulcers. To treat it, you can use a cold compress and Ibuprofen to prevent eye pain. And the eye drop should be dropped frequently. But in my opinion, you should have an eye test as soon as possible. Anyway, just be careful about it.


    It means that there is an open sore in your cornea.It is often caused by viral, bacterial, or fungal infection, trauma or dry eyes. Don't worry. It can be cured. If the situation is not that bad, your doctor will prescribe you with antibiotic eye drops or oral medication to help your corneal to heal. When the medication doesn't work, you will have to turn to surgery.
