I was unfortunate enough to get shingles in my right eye back in Nov. The dr. has been treating me with drops of all sorts, including Famvir in the beginning, but what seemed to do the most good was the Pred Forte. I took my last drop 6 days ago. My eye pinks up now and then, but nothing compared to what I've gone thru. Sure hope you can get over this. I hear that it can last along time as I have found out. Hope everything works out for you. Regards.
