Question

 

 

Dear Sir/ Madam, Greetings,

I am Zoha from Bangladesh. I got viral keratitis. Dr. Suggested Moxigen, Freash Tear, Xoviral Eye Gel. I go cured on 23 October 2017 but I had blurred vision due to white spot (I think scar).

Then doctor suggested Lotimax (Loteprednol Etabonate 0.5%) for 17 days then cured.

Within 5 days white spot recurred and doctor suggested the same Lotimax. This continued from 23 October 2017 to 04 April 2018. Again it recurred within 5 days.

Now doctor says he will not suggest this anymore because it may cause Glaucoma and other problems. Doctor will reconsider if i face serious problem with my vision. Now my whit spot is increasing.

What should I do Now?

Thanks
