A 28-year-old male presents to the emergency department (ED) with a sudden onset of redness, eye watering and photophobia in his right eye. He denies any trauma to the eye and reports no significant medical history.

On examination, the right eye appears injected with ciliary flush, and there is a small, round corneal ulcer with an overlying epithelial defect. Examination of his left eye is unremarkable.
