Even with the best eye care and hygiene, eye infections can happen. Symptoms may include redness, itching, burning, tearing, and discharge. If you have any of these symptoms, it is best to schedule an appointment so our optometrists can discern the cause of your irritation and decide a course of treatment. It is important to not self-treat with over the counter drops without seeing an optometrist as infections can progress rapidly and severely damage your eyes and vision. Sometimes, cool compresses and artificial tears can help soothe the eyes, but other times, prescription eye drops or oral medications are needed to prevent further infection and permanent damage.
