What is an eye infection?

Bacteria, viruses, or fungi can get into your eyes and cause an infection. Any part of your eye can become infected, including the eyelid, cornea, or conjunctiva. Eye infections can develop in one eye or both eyes.

The symptoms of an eye infection depend on which part of the eye is infected. Some of the most common eye infections are conjunctivitis, keratitis, and styes.

Most common eye infections:

Conjunctivitis, commonly known as “pink eye,” is an infection of the conjunctiva. It’s called “pink eye” because it often gives your eye a pinkish tint.

Keratitis is an infection of the cornea. It is one of the most common types of eye infections among contact lens wearers.
A stye is a painful lump on the eyelid, near the eyelashes. Bacteria present in an oil gland in the skin on the edge of the eyelid cause styes.

Common symptoms of eye infections include:

  • Burning sensation
  • Tears
  • Light sensitivity
  • Redness
  • Sensation that there is an object in the eye

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Eye Infections Treated?

Most eye infections clear up quickly with proper treatment. Our healthcare providers may recommend a variety of treatments that may include:

  • Eye drops
  • Eye ointments
  • Oral medications

Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions and fill any prescriptions, even when symptoms go away. You should not wear contact lenses until the eye infection clears up.

How Can I Prevent An Eye Infection?

There are a number of steps you can take to help keep your eyes healthy, and our healthcare providers will tell you how to avoid eye infections during your visit.

For example, wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your eyes and face when your hands are dirty. You’ll also want to avoid sharing eye makeup with other people.

If you wear contact lenses, you are at higher risk of developing an eye infection. To protect your eyes, you should disinfect your contact lenses daily and wash your hands before putting them in or taking them out.

If someone you know has conjunctivitis, try not to touch them. Conjunctivitis is one of the most contagious eye infections and can be easily spread through physical contact.
