Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
If your father noted no improvement in his condition ( persisting symptoms ) after homeopathic treatment , then he need choose another more potent treatment in such case. Symptoms he developed( intense pain, probably edema, redness, photophobia, discomfort, etc ) are very suggestive for ophthalmologicic manifestation of herpes virus infection. If diagnose is confirmed of herpes virus ophtalmicus then most effective treatment with Trifluridine drops nine times per day, vidarabine ointment five times per day, acyclovir oral tablets five time per day. All these medication can prescribe your Doctor and he will explain treatment details.
I wish you and your father good luck and speedy recovery.
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,

Dr.Mihail
