Antibiotic eye drops and pain relief medicines are used for treating corneal ulcers. Surgery is required in some cases.

Treatment of corneal ulcers and infections depends upon the cause. A corneal ulcer should be treated as soon as possible to prevent further injury to the cornea.

Bacterial ulcers require aggressive treatment. In some cases, antibiotic eye drops are used every 15 minutes.

Hospitalization may be required if the ulcer is severe. Oral pain medications will be prescribed to control the pain. Pain can also be controlled with special eye drops that keep the pupil dilated.

Corneal transplants- In severely damaged cornea, a corneal transplant may be the only option.
