I have a family member who has been diagnosed with ocular herpes. He has been treating for at least 2 months on the anti-virual meds and is still having symptoms (sensativity to light, swelling, pain).
The question I have is as follows: This patient is also a very heavy alcohol consumer. Would this have anything to do with the anti virual medications not working? He is down to 25% use of his eye due to the build up of scar tissue, so there is great concern as he is a very young person.
