Thank you for your medical query at
I understand your concern.
I have reviewed his reports, and since the eyeball has already started shrinking, there is very little chance of recovering his vision. If it progresses to shrinking of eyeball, there is really no hope.
I am sorry but the prognosis looks bad.

Patient replied :

Thank u so much. Will this affect another eye also? What are all the precautions to be taken to safeguard the right eye.

Infections occur due to internal infections , they don't affect the other eye or other body parts , but the infection has to be controlled as soon as possible, because if it travels into the blood iot can affect the other eye or body parts.
