Treatment for Eye Infection Symptoms
Redness, irritation, discharge, swelling, pain and vision loss are all symptoms of eye infections. An eye infection occurs when harmful bacteria, viruses or fungi invade the tissues of the eye and other eye structures. A common eye infection is pink eye. Your symptoms may be present in many different parts of the eye, including the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis), the cornea (keratitis), the eyelids (blepharitis) and even the interior of the eye (endophthalmitis). Eye infections can cause symptoms such as:
- Blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light
