CORNEAL ULCER FROM CONTACT LENS OVERWEAR

The photos below are of a corneal ulcer in a patient who frequently sleeps in their “extended wear” contact lenses and doesn’t have a good pair of glasses that they like. 
This patient is lucky because the ulcer was just outside the visual axis, meaning that most of her vision should return to normal once the infection is gone and the eye is healed.  This ulcer will take high dosage of very potent topical antibiotics to resolve, followed by anti-inflammatory drops to minimize scarring and maximize vision.
