I’m Concerned About Herpes in my Eyes

Dear Dr. Rob:

I am very concerned about the virus infecting the eyes. I have
heard it can cause blindness. How can you tell if one`s eye is
actually infected? If the eye is already infected, what steps are
necessary to prevent blindness?

Dr Rob’s Response:

Dear Poster Concerned about their Eyes:

Herpes Type 2 almost never infects the eye, except when it is
passed genitally, and the baby, in fact, can have ocular or eye
lesions. The herpes that typically affects the eye in adults is
herpes zoster, which is a recrudescence of chicken pox in a
person whose immune system is not functioning up to par.
