Eye Infection Treatment Without the Need for an Appointment in Waltham, MA

Picture of a woman touching her eye in pain.Are you experiencing redness, itchiness, tearing, or a gritty sensation in one or both eyes? Was there a crust over your eye when you woke up this morning? These are some of the telltale signs of conjunctivitis (pink eye), one of the many conditions treated at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Waltham, Massachusetts. As with all of our urgent care services, we’re pleased to offer eye infection treatment on a walk-in basis.

How to Treat Pink Eye

Pink eye often resolves on its own, without the need for medical intervention. The following treatments may provide relief until pink eye symptoms resolve:

  • Cleaning your eyelid with a wet cloth
  • Holding a compress (warm or cold) over your eye
  • Using over-the-counter eyedrops (artificial tears)

If your symptoms persist more than 12 to 24 hours or include eye pain, light sensitivity, blurred vision, or a feeling of having something stuck in your eye, you should consult with a trained medical provider.

Can’t Get an Appointment With Your PCP?

If your primary care provider doesn’t have any appointments available but you need medical attention now, turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our Waltham immediate care center is open every day of the year with extended hours, and we never require appointments for eye infection treatment or our other urgent care services (although patients can still book an appointment or check in online ahead of time, if desired). You’ll find us at 1019 Trapelo Road, next to Starbucks. And if you can’t make it to an in-person appointment, don’t worry—we also offer telehealth virtual visits. Contact us by calling 860-650-3848 if you have any questions.

"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."

Somers, NY
