When to Seek Treatment for an Eye Infection

Eyes can become irritated by allergies and a number of other factors, so when is professional medical treatment necessary? If you’re experiencing the symptoms of pink eye (conjunctivitis), it’s always a good idea to visit a healthcare provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care for eye infection treatment. Pink eye symptoms can affect one or both eyes and may include:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • A sensation of grittiness
  • Excess tearing
  • Discharge that can form into a crust overnight

Pink eye can occur for multiple reasons. Our experienced medical practitioners can determine what’s at the root of your eye infection and prescribe appropriate treatment, which may include using soothing eye drops, taking allergy medication, or implementing self-care measures like placing a cold compress over your eye and thoroughly cleaning eyeglasses and pillowcases.

"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."
