There are certain symptoms you may have which definitely signal the fact that you probably have an eye infection. It is important that possible eye infections are always diagnosed and treated early so that permanent vision damage does not occur. Some of the signs of eye infections can include: pain in an eye; a feeling that there is something in your eye which cannot be removed; an increased sensitivity to light; a discharge from the eye which can be yellow, green, bloodied, or even watery; increased redness of the eyes; redness of the eyelid; a gray or white sore on the iris; a fever with no other obvious cause; or blurred vision, or vision which is affected in any other way. When you experience any of these serious symptoms, you will want to contact our office for an immediate appointment to see our 89015 eye specialist. If you wear contact lenses, you are at greater risk for developing an eye infection. So, if you do wear contacts, it is important that you always keep them cleaned and disinfected as directed by our optometrist. You will also want to make sure that your hands are freshly washed before you touch your eyes, or before you insert or remove the contact lenses from your eyes. Keratitis is a very serious eye infection, often caused by contact lens wear, which can lead to blindness if left untreated.
