Can herpes occur in the eyes, and what are the symptoms like?

Age: 16 - 29
Eye & LASIK
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hi,

Yes, herpes can affect the eyelids, conjunctiva and even the cornea. If it occurs in the eyelid, there will be blisters along the eyelid margins. If it occurs in the conjunctiva & cornea, there will be redness, tearing, discharge and blurry vision.

For accurate diagnosis & treatment, I would advise patients to seek the consult of an eye doctor. He/she will be able to prescribe antiviral medications (either in the form of topical ointments or oral antiviral medications).

I hope that this was helpful to you!

Yes, the herpes viruses (such as herpes simplex and herpes zoster/chickenpox) viruses can occur in the eyes.

Almost any part of the eye can be affected, including the eyelids, cornea, conjunctiva, sclera and very rarely retina.

The symptoms experienced depend very much on which part of the eye is affected. Even then, there could be several forms of the disease in the affected part of the eye.

For example, there could be little blisters on the eyelid skin, or if the cornea is affected there could be eye redness, irritation, blurring of vision etc

The symptoms are not specific - ie there are other conditions that could cause the same or similar symptoms.

As such, it is important as always to consult a doctor in the event of such symptoms, so that an accurate diagnosis can be made and the appropriate treatment given.
