Medication To Treat Keratitis?
I want to ask, prescribe eye drops keratitis at the pharmacy
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Keratitis is an inflammatory condition in the cornea of the eye. The cornea is the clear layer in front of the iris (the black part of the eyeball). In general, the causes of keratitis can be divided into 2, the cause of infection and non-infectious causes. Infection in the corena of the eye can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi, or parasites. Meanwhile, several causes of non-infection include:
injury or scratch to the cornea of the eye
foreign objects that stick or scratch the cornea of the eye
the use of contact lenses that are not clean or the use of contact lenses for too long
Keratitis is a serious condition and requires immediate evaluation and treatment from an ophthalmologist. This condition cannot be treated by you alone and cannot be treated with medicines that can be bought freely at the pharmacy. Treatment of keratitis can also vary, it must be adjusted to the cause of your keratitis. If you experience symptoms of keratitis such as red eyes, pain, accompanied by visual disturbances in your eyes, you should immediately go to an ophthalmologist and should not be delayed. Keratitis that is not treated properly can cause damage to the cornea of a permanent nature.
Avoid scratching or rubbing or just holding your eyes, and do not use any eye drops in your eyes without consulting a doctor first. You are also not recommended to use eye drops concoction yourself (from certain herbal or traditional ingredients) to overcome the condition in your eyes.
