eye cornea problem

My niece is having eye cornea problem. Following is the information from her doctor.....

Diagnosis: Likely Herpes Simplex virus related scar with deep vessels
I was prescribed vigamox and viroptic eye drops for 2 weeks

Treatment which im currently on for the next 2 months: prednisolone to decrease scar plus redness and viroptic its and anti-viral

Future plan: may consider PTK (type of lazer) in future but may not be advisable with juicy blood vessel, could use AVASTIN (its a type of injection to reduce the blood vessels)

Please let me know your kind opinion.
