IS THAT true ??Depends what kind of ulcers they are, and it depends where they are. The sheer number suggests that she may have what is called marginal keratitis, which is a condition related to skin conditions, like acne.It can sometimes prevent people from surgery, and contact lenses are unadvisable.
