Corneal ulcer management?
Hello, I am 27 years old. I was driving my bike yesterday and suddenly felt pain in my right eye. I felt that some foreign body like sensation in eye. As there was no water nearby, I couldn’t wash it and cleaned it after around 1 hour. By evening, the pain increased with some sticky discharge. I have washed many time with no relief. I am not able to see toward bright light also. Please advise what should I do in this situation.
@sujit A corneal ulcer is an open sore on your cornea, the thin clear layer over your iris (the colored part of your eye). It’s also known as keratitis. You’ll need to see your doctor every day until they tell you to stop. Call them right away if your symptoms get worse, such as blurry vision, pain, or discharge.

Your doctor may also recommend some steps you can take at home to ease symptoms: Put cool compresses on your eye. But be very careful to keep water away from your eye. Don’t touch or rub your eye with your fingers. Limit the spread of infection by washing your hands often and drying them with a clean towel. Take over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
