Harley would be on a round of antibiotic for a couple of weeks to a month, everything would look ok, so we would stop. In a couple of more months, I would happen to look at his eye & see it oozing "crud", off to the vet's, back on antibiotic ointment, & so forth. After the 3rd re-ulceration, we got sent the eye vet who said at that point it was about 90% healed, but with a lot of scar tissue. We started on a different antibiotic ointment + steroid in the AM, same antibiotic/no steroid in the PM, cyclosporin drops 3x daily, & in between all of the above, artificial tears as frequently as possible. I think it took around 5-6 months for things to totally heal up, & the scar tissue to subside.
