Treatment of Ocular Allergies and Infections

Our doctors can diagnose and treat many eye allergies and infections.
Common allergies and infections include:
  • Allergic Conjunctivitis causes red, itchy, watery eyes. It is not contagious.
  • Bacterial Conjunctivitis is a bacterial infection that often produces a glue-like discharge which can make it difficult to open your eye in the morning. It is contagious.
  • Viral Conjunctivitis causes painful, red, watery eyes that are often extremely sensitive to light. ┬áIt is highly contagious.
  • Styes, much like pimples, are infected glands along the eyelid. Antibiotics are often needed to aid in healing.
  • Uveitis is a painful inflammation of the inner layers of the eye, often caused from injuries.
If you feel like you are experiencing any of these symptomatic conditions, please contact our office for an appointment.
