Unbeknownst to many of us, eye infections are more common that we may think. It may seem strange to realize, but there are numerous types of bacteria which constantly exist on our bodies, inside and out. Numerous varieties live on our skin at all times. In most cases our protective layer keeps these microorganisms from ever causing us any harm. However, it is not difficult for these bacteria to get into your eyes and cause problems. One such issue that occurs is known as stye. Externally, a stye appears as a sort of pimple upon your eyelid, occurring next to your line of eyelashes. It can become a red painful bump, but when a stye happens internally, it grows inside your eyelid and will need the care of your trusted Rhodes Ranch eye doctor to heal effectively.

Not all eye infections occur from oils on your skin, others can be caught from those you see and run into every day. Conjunctivitis is the most commonly known optical infection among many of us because it is so highly contagious, but it is also often caused by allergies and irritants. Known to many as pink eye, conjunctivitis causes eyes to become blood shot, earning its name. Pink eye can also cause yellow discharge which can stick to your eyelashes during sleep, burning sensations in your eyes, blurred vision, and even an increased sensitivity to light. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a whole host of reasons, and each requiring a different mode of care from your professional Rhodes Ranch eye doctor.

Eye infections happen to many of us, and the odds increase with contact lens wearers, and certain environments can also cause an infection of your eyes. The right care for your eyes requires a personal and experienced Rhodes Ranch eye doctor who will listen closely to your medical needs. You can find exactly that at the offices of Glenn Roter, OD. Our welcoming offices have proudly served your local community for over 15 fifteen years. You can rest assured that Dr. Roter will have your sighted returned to a healthy state.

Spring Valley Optometry

Spring Valley Optometry

Your eyes can get infections from bacteria, fungi or viruses and eye infections can occur in different parts of the eye and can affect just one eye or both. At our Spring Valley Optometry office, Glenn Roter, OD offers expert treatment of eye infections using the most advanced instruments such as the Reichert digital vision chart which ensures an accurate eye exam. One common eye infection is Conjunctivitis, also known as pinkeye. Children frequently get it and it is highly contagious. Another common infection is a Stye, a bump on the eyelid that happens when bacteria from your skin gets into the hair follicle of an eyelash. Symptoms of some eye infections may include redness, swelling, itching, discharge, pain, or problems with vision. Treatment depends on the cause of the infection but the contagious nature of these infections must be taken seriously, especially with children playing and at school.

Contact lens wearers are at risk of encountering parasites that invade the eye and cause a serious sight-threatening infection called Acanthamoeba keratitis. This is why our Spring Valley Optometrist, Dr. Roter,  educates their contact lens wearing patients to be aware and observe and practice certain safety tips, such as avoiding swimming while wearing contacts. If you do wear contact lenses when swimming or relaxing in a hot tub, make sure you remove and disinfect your lenses immediately afterward.

Fortunately, most common bacterial eye infections clear up with prompt treatment such as prescription antibiotic eye drops, ointments, and compresses. Many common viral eye infections resolve on their own but in cases of severe viral eye infections, an antiviral eye drop may be prescribed. Some viral eye infections will require careful administration of steroid eye drops, at our Spring Valley optometry practice by Dr. Roter, to reduce related inflammation. You can prevent eye infections by washing your hands before touching your eyes or eyelids and before handling contact lenses.

Depending on the underlying cause of your eye infection, Dr. Roter whose optometry practice is within Walmart Vision Center located in Spring Valley may also prescribe antibiotics or antiviral medications that are taken orally. If your symptoms change or worsen, contact Dr. Roter immediately.
