When Is Eye Infection Treatment Necessary?

It’s always a good idea to seek medical care for an eye infection, especially if your symptoms worsen after 24 hours, impair vision, or cause severe discomfort. Here at PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we frequently treat patients with pink eye (conjunctivitis)—an infection of the clear membrane that lines the back of the eyelids and the whites of the eyes. Symptoms of pink eye can affect one or both eyes and commonly involve:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Pain
  • A gritty sensation
  • A feeling that something is stuck in the eye
  • Eye discharge that may crust overnight
  • Increased tear production

Our knowledgeable clinicians can get to the bottom of your symptoms, confirm what type of eye infection is present, and provide treatment that’s individualized to your specific needs. We can also supply at-home care recommendations to accelerate your recovery and help you get back to feeling like yourself.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
