Eye Infections

Eye infections can occur due to various factors, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. These infections can affect different parts of the eye, such as the conjunctiva, cornea, or eyelids.

Explore Common Eye Infections:

  • Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Known for redness, itching, and discharge, caused by viruses, bacteria, allergens, or irritants.

  • Blepharitis: Eyelid inflammation due to bacteria or skin conditions, presenting with redness, swelling, crusty eyelashes, and discomfort.

  • Stye (Hordeolum): A red, painful lump near the edge of the eyelid, caused by a blocked oil gland.

  • Keratitis: Inflammation of the cornea, caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Symptoms include eye pain, redness, light sensitivity, and blurred vision.

  • Uveitis: Inflammation of the uvea causing redness, pain, light sensitivity, and blurred vision, attributed to infections, autoimmune diseases, or trauma.

While these are common, other eye infections exist. If you suspect an eye infection or experience redness, discharge, or discomfort, contact Trio Eyecare promptly for evaluation and tailored treatment.

Treatment and Prevention

Treatment for eye infections depends on the type and severity of the infection. It may include prescription eye drops or ointments, oral medications, or other. Proper hygiene, such as washing hands regularly, avoiding touching or rubbing your eyes, and using clean towels and pillows, can help prevent eye infections.
