I saw a commercial for Restasis eye drops on television. I wasn’t paying a lot of attention, but I heard something about Herpes in your eyes. My first thought? How do you get Herpes in your EYES?! Is someone a bad shot? A few internet clicks later, I learned that the type of Herpes virus which can affect your eyes is NOT the same one that causes genital Herpes and is not an STD. The virus in question is the one which causes chicken pox and cold sores. Okay. Phew! I am so glad I was wrong about eye Herpes.
