Understanding Different Eye Infections

While pink eye (conjunctivitis) is one of the more common eye infections, there are several types to know about in order to understand when the help of a medical professional may be necessary. Here are a few to be aware of:

  • Pink eye – Pink eye is a highly contagious eye infection that causes inflammation of the conjunctiva as well as general eye itchiness and discomfort.
  • Styes – Another common eye infection, a stye refers to a red, tender bump that appears on the edge of the eyelid.
  • Fungal infections – While pink eye and styes are more common, fungal infections can also occur particularly for contact lens wearers.

A medical professional can help to better assess the infection at hand and determine what the best course of treatment may be. Most often, infections like pink eye can be cleared up easily with prompt treatment in the form of prescribed eye drops, antibiotic ointments, or other methods.

"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."
