Eye infections can form when bacteria, viruses, or fungi invade any part of the eyeball or surrounding area. When an infection develops, all parts of the eye can become affected. Symptoms include blurry vision, red eyes, light sensitivity, itchy eyes, swollen eyes, dry eyes, and more. Eye infections should be treated immediately so call us if you suspect that you have one. During this time, you should wear your eyeglasses and avoid wearing contact lenses until the infection has cleared.
