Blurred Vision & EKC

    I was diagonised with EKC in my left eye almo 5 weeks ago. I'm still under medication. First it happened in my left eye and I was cured 90% ( all teh problem vanished however vision was not clear fully ) , then I got this in my left eye, it also cured within 7 days, vision was back like before, then again I got in my left eye. This time although the infection is almost cured in 7 days and I'm not facing any pain or foreign body sensation , still I'm facing th blurred vision prblem and its very acute? How long will it take to cure? is it going to create any vlong term vision problem afterwards?

Also for the last two years I can feel my left eye is more powerful than my right eye? Doctors said that always one of the eye will be more powerful? is it correct?

Thanks & Regards

Dear arunabha,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the cause of your continued visual problems and recurrent viral conjunctivitis.  Sometimes, inflammation can occur in the front surface of the eye known as the cornea.  This can cause blurred vision and be difficult to eradicate completely.  Usually, over time these disappear and visual loss does not occur.
