How are eye infections treated?
The answer to this question will depend on what type of eye infection you have. The most common eye infection is conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye. This condition can be triggered by allergies, viruses, or bacteria, and may also develop from irritation caused by a foreign object in the eye. Treatment for this eye infection may involve using medicated eye drops, as well as avoiding wearing contacts and eye makeup for several days while the infection clears. You might also be advised to replace eye makeup, disinfect hard lenses, and wash pillowcases to help ensure the infection does not return.
Our physicians can also remove foreign objects in the eye and provide treatment for eye irritation caused by allergies. If you have questions about your eye health and how you can prevent future infections, our team will be happy to answer them and help you make educated decisions about your care.
