Leegenta DM Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Dexamethasone and Gatifloxacin.

It kills bacteria in the eye by preventing them from reproducing and repairing themselves. This treats your infection.

Dr. Vishal Arora

If the infection is not going then transplant will be an option. But the way you have described it, it may not be infection but something else. There will always be a difference between what patient describes to what has been told by the doctor. Please consult your doctor. Cannot advise without examination
