Eye infections are often passed on from one individual to the next when someone touches their eyes without having washed their hands. Patients with eye infections can experience discomfort, inflammation, stinging, and itchiness in their eyes. In the event of an eye infection, the team at Your Family Medical Clinic can provide urgent treatment at our office. We routinely treat adults and children with conjunctivitis (pink eye), styes, fungal eye infections, blepharitis, and keratitis.
Even though infections of the eye are extremely common and easily treatable, even minor infections can lead to a lot of discomfort. During an appointment at Your Family Medical Clinic, we will examine your eyes and talk to you about your symptoms. We might also order diagnostic tests to establish the kind of infection you are dealing with. Diagnosing the type of and cause of the infection is important to establishing your treatment plan and discouraging infections in the future. Your treatment plan will be based on the type of eye infection and whether it is viral or bacterial. Treatment for eye infections may include prescription eye drops, topical steroids, antibiotics, or antiviral medications.
Although eye infections are almost always minor, it’s a good idea to have them checked out by a trained professional. If you have persistent eye discomfort or inflammation, schedule an appointment today. Our providers are extremely skilled in providing relief for eye infections in patients of all ages.
