Eye Infections: What Causes Them?
Eye infections occur when harmful microorganisms in the form of bacteria, fungi or viruses invade the eye or its supporting structures. Hand-to-eye contact or mishandling of corrective eyewear like contact lenses are the leading culprits behind most eye infections.
An eye infection often affects the cornea (the outer surface of the eye) or the conjuctiva (the inner lining of the eyelid). In certain cases, a small scratch in the eye can collect microorganisms, paving the way for infection. We will examine your eyes to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms and provide prompt and effective treatment.
