I got Lasek a month ago and have 2 corneal ulcers. 1 on each eye. I have them for 2 weeks and they do not heal. The doctor does not know why I have them. I am on iquix. I took omnipred for 2 weeks and am now on Lotemax once a day per doctor's orders. Sometimes the corneal ulcer turns stringlike and then turns round. I need help. I am extremely worried.

  • Go to another opthalmologist for a second opinion. Do you have very dry eyes?
