“In shingles, the cornea can become ulcerated and if not treated urgently an ulcer can cause a scar, in the worst cases it can leave the patient blind in the affected eye.

“It is important to contact your optometrist urgently if you have any of the symptoms above as early treatment will lead to a better outcome.
