Our expert says:
I suggest that you reconsult your paediatrician for an examination. He might need an extended course of eye ointment to clear the infection. It is however, possible that his immune system is compromised, due to being born premature. The paediatrician can do blood tests to determine if there is anything to be concerned about. It is important for the eye infection to be treated adequately, to prevent complications, like blindness.
