Are there new eyedrops or treatment that is more conservative ?

My mother has Rheumatoid A 284-factor. Eye melt, 3 cornea transplans have not taken. Now they want to eviscerate the eye; the eye is not sensitive to light but sees some light at different angles. The eye is ulcerated. They said the eye infection can spread to her brain and her body. Are there new eyedrops or treatment that is more conservative ?

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
the indications for evisceration are a painful infection which is not responding to treatment.In case there is any likelihood of a change of treatment which will benefit the patient,then it is to be given a chance.Otherwise surgery iis the only treatment.

No at this stage where there is ulcer and risk of brain and body getting infected, i think you should follow what the doctor is telling. Or speak to some more experts..and see what the best people in the field say about it..
