My brother started having eye pain a month now, he went to the hospital and doctor gave him steroid drops. After 2 weeks, the pain is now strong, my brother went back to the hospital and asked the doctor to give him transfer to the eye clinic. On getting there, they told us that it is corneal ulcer caused by the steroid. Now there is white part that has already formed scar and he cannot eve see anything now except light. But 2 weeks ago he could see shadow but now he cannot see anything. In that eye clinic they have given him medicines (Augmentin, Diamox, aceclofenac, Flagyl, timolol drops, ofloxacin drops) presently..
