What Are Symptoms of Eye Infections?
Blurry vision is a common symptom of an infection. Along with this, infections can present several uncomfortable concerns, from swelling to persistent itch. Specifically, eye infection may be present if you experience the following issues:
- Pain and itch
- Feeling that something is on or in your eye
- Light sensitivity and burning
- A small, painful lump
- Tenderness and irritation
- Eyes won’t stop tearing up
- Green, yellow, or clear discharge
- Pink coloration
- Swelling, redness, or purple eyelids
- Crusty lashes and lids
What Causes Eye Infections?
Eye infections are caused by a variety of issues, including viruses, bacteria, and fungus. For instance, pink eye (conjunctivitis) can develop due to either a virus, bacteria, or even an allergic reaction. Keratitis is another common infection caused by viruses, bacteria, and sometimes parasites. Since most infections can have varying causes, an evaluation is vital to getting a firm diagnosis.
What Are the Treatment Options?
The first step in treating eye infections is identifying their source and getting a solid diagnosis. We can provide an eye exam complete with testing to get an understanding of what you’re going through. Once that has been determined, we can provide treatment options, typically in the form of prescription eye drops. Get in touch to learn more about how we can help you today.
