What are the symptoms of an eye infection?
If you have an eye infection, then you might be having symptoms in one or both eyes. You might be experiencing:
- Eye itchiness, discomfort, or pain
- A feeling that something is in or on your eye
- Sensitivity to light or a burning sensation in your eyes
- A small, painful bump under your eyelid or at the base of your eyelashes
- Swollen lymph nodes by your ear
- Tenderness to touch of the eyelid
- Tearing eyes and/or constant eye irritation
- A pink color in the whites of your eyes, or eyelids that are swollen, red, or purple
- Discharge from one or both of your eyes
- Lashes and eyelids that are crusty, especially in the morning
- Blurred vision
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, then they could be caused by an eye infection. To have an eye infection diagnosed and treated, you could go see your physician, but if you’d like to be treated right away and same-day, then go see an urgent care doctor instead!
How are eye infections treated?
This can depend on the type of eye infection. Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is a common type of infection that usually gives the eyes a pink color or tint. It’s caused by a bacteria, virus, allergic reaction, or irritant, and commonly accompanies colds. Because there are many different possible causes, a doctor might suggest a home remedy, antihistamine eye drops, antibiotic, or other treatment. Pink eye that’s caused by a virus is very contagious, so it’s important to have pink eye treated quickly. This is a good example of when urgent care is convenient and almost necessary.
Other common eye infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, autoimmune disorders, or even parasites. Some infections are more common in patients who wear contact lenses. Here at Express Healthcare LLC, our onsite laboratory gives us the ability to diagnose the exact cause of an eye infection, then we can provide the proper treatment, like prescription medication. This medication could be an oral medication, eyedrops, cream, or other medication, depending on your particular case and your needs.
