Causes & Symptoms of Eye Infections

Eye infections typically occur when bacteria or viruses find their way into your eye, causing irritation and inflammation. Conjunctivitis, commonly known as pink eye, is one of the most prevalent eye infections. It can result from these unwanted intruders or even foreign objects that trigger inflammation within the eyelid and eye membrane. The signs of pink eye are unmistakable:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Discharge, which may crust overnight
  • Frequent tearing
  • A gritty feeling

Although some mild cases of pink eye and other eye infections may resolve on their own, seeking professional care is advisable to ensure the condition doesn't worsen, and to help limit the spread of this potentially contagious condition. Prompt and effective eye infection treatment—like the kind offered at PhysicianOne Urgent Care—can speed up your recovery significantly.
