Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus (Shingles)
Shingles can affect many parts of the body. When this virus affects the upper face, it may infect the eye and mainly the cornea. If a person has viral lesions on one side of the face and scalp, it is important to get it evaluated by an ophthalmologist to ensure no active eye disease is occurring. This is even important if there are no eye symptoms since the eye can lose sensation in light of this infection. If the cornea is involved, it is likely that your eye care professional will refer you to a cornea specialist like Dr. Ahmed Nasrullah to manage the corneal involvement since it does require an advanced level of management. If the virus causes severe scarring surgical intervention may be necessary.

I had Lasik done on both eyes and the experience was great. I was legally blind in both eyes (corrected with contacts) and today I don’t need wear glasses to see at all. It really is amazing.
The procedure is explained in detail from start to finish.

I’m going to post here for Dr. Nasrullah. He is a fantastic Lasik surgeon. Even better, he really cares about his patients. He explained the surgery to me, answered all my questions. He re-checked my prescription before the surgery just to make sure they knew where I stood.
