Can Herpetic keratoconjunctivitis lead to blindness if not given immediate attention?

My daughter was diaginosed with H Zoster Keratoconjucpizits last year and we were told that it has a treeing appearence in the eye which could lead to blindness. Her normal Vision doctor is out of town and I need to know if I need to get her in now or if its safe to wait. Also if the baby sitter can get it?
