    In fact, the first and most important thing you should do it find out the reasons why you get the eye ulcers, then I think you will treat it easily. According to the medical experts, the ulcers can be caused by a tear in the cornea, and if the tears get infected, you are more likely to get the eye ulcers, which are very painful. If so, you can just use some prescribe cycloplegic eye drops to prevent infection, which will promote healing. Also, if you wear contact lenses for long time, there are also more possibilities to get the ulcer, then what you should do is that just put off your lenses and ask your doctor to clean and wash your eyes. If you find your eye ulcer is more serious, you had better go to your personal eye doctor and he will check and treat it for you. However, before going to doctor's, you can take some measures to stop the pain, for example, a cold compress and ibuprofen an help you to finish it. Hope you can make it, and good luck.

    You can apply cold compresses over your eyes to relieve the pain or you can wrap an ice with a clean towel or washcloth and then put the towel or washcloth onto the affected eye. In the meanwhile, you can take over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to cure your eye ulcers. And during this period of treatment, do not wear contact lenses if you wear in case that they aggravate your situation. Do not rub or scratch your eyes with your hands in case of bacteria intrusion to make it worse. Wash your hands often and you had better dry them with a clean towel.

    Eye ulcer is painful. It is an open sore on the cornea. The cornea is a transparent protective covering on eyeball. It is transparent so that light could travel through. It has millions of nerve endings on cornea, which makes it extremely sensitive. So corneal ulcer is excruciating, for the nerve ends exposure. It also develops excessive tearing, squinting or even vision loss. To know the optimal treatment, you need have the doctor found out what caused your corneal ulcer. For bacterial infected corneal ulcer, it should adopt fortified anti-biotic therapy. As to fungal infected corneal ulcer, intensified topical anti-fungal agents are good and proper treatment. While as to viral corneal ulceration, antiviral is used such as topical acyclovir ointment which should be instilled at least 5times per day. If the viral infection is caused by herpes simplex virus, it would last for a rather long period. Patients are usually encouraged to take some supplement of vitamin A and vitamin C which could help recovery.
