Answer

A broad-spectrum antifungal drug usually is chosen for fungal infections. Common medications include natamycin, voriconazole, and amphotericin B. Other options include fluconazole, miconazole, and ketoconazole. Natamycin is the first-line treatment in fungal infections of the cornea. [10] Consult with an ophthalmologist.
