    I think it's herpes simplex. How bad is this condition? What is the prognosis when treated with Viroptic?

    Without more details, it is very difficult to answer your question. Herpes simplex can be very devastating to vision even if treated appropriately, or it can have little residual effect. It depends on whether its stromal or epithelial, its location on the cornea, and how quickly treatment is initiated.

    Go to "Cornea", then under "Past Issues" got to "Herpes Simplex Keratitis". Every thing you need to know.
