Get Treatment for Your Eye Infections and Get Rid of the Irritation

Eye infections are relatively common occurrences, stemming from bacteria, fungi, or viruses. At Aslett-Kurica we take eye infections seriously. Eye infection can often lead to permanent damage if not treated quickly and correctly. We work to get you the medicine and knowledge you need to handle any eye infection you may run into, and help you avoid getting another in the future.

There are many types of eye infections. Common eye infections include conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, and styes. Conjunctivitis is contagious and is known to spread rapidly without treatment. A stye is typically caused by bacteria entering your eye and can be painful and unsightly.

If you have an eye infection, you may experience redness, itching, swelling, pain, eye discharge, and vision problems. If you experience any of these symptoms for more than several days, it is crucial to schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist to avoid permanent damage.

Treatment for an eye infection varies depending on the type of infection and its cause. Treatment may include eye drops, oral medication, compresses, or other medications. Call Aslett-Kurica Eye Center today to schedule your appointment.
