Understanding Eye Infections

Eye infections occur when bacteria or other harmful microorganisms enter the eye or the surrounding area, causing inflammation and irritation. The most common eye infection is pink eye, or conjunctivitis. Factors that can cause pink eye include everything from the common cold, COVID-19, and other respiratory infections to seasonal allergies, a foreign object in the eye, and other potential exposures to bacteria. The symptoms to look out for include:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Frequent tearing
  • Discharge that can form a crust overnight
  • A gritty sensation

Effective Eye Infection Treatment Made Easy

While some cases of pink eye and other eye infections can go away on their own, it’s important to seek medical attention, especially in severe cases. Along with seeking proper eye infection treatment, you should avoid wearing contacts and thoroughly clean anything that comes in contact with your eyes, such as 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."
