Infectious conjunctivitis is the most common and usually results in red, itchy eyes with sticky discharge. It is particularly prevalent amongst young children but spreads quickly to other family members.
Treatment is usually very simple, however sometimes these same symptoms can be the sign of a more serious condition. That’s why we’re encouraging people to visit their optometrist when they experience the signs of an eye infection. Unlike GPs, we have all the technology to give your eyes a thorough MOT to ensure that you get the right diagnosis. We can then prescribe whatever treatment is required.
It is also worth noting that most over the counter eye drops require insertion up to six times a day, however there is now a new treatment available on prescription that only requires use twice a day. A lot less hassle, especially for parents with children who aren’t keen on drops.
If you have the signs of an eye infection this winter, give your eyes the best care possibly by making an appointment with your optometrist.
