Infection/scratch in eye causing vision to worsen

I'm trying to help my sibling out who's been having this issue for the past couple of months. She is literally at her wits end and i only recently found out how severe it was.

A couple of months ago she had an what was initially a scratch in her eye and became infected. The scratch/infection would not heal and her vision has been progressively getting worse and worse. Now, she can barely see out of her one eye and can only see bright lights. She avoids the light as it's too painful for her eye.

She's been to more than 5 ophthalmologists and they are all stumped and cannot find the root cause. She's been prescribed antibiotics and I'm assuming she's taken medication for both bacterial and viral infections.

I've never heard of this and am wondering what could possibly be going on?
