It is very important to not take an eye infection lightly. It’s more than just a nuisance, and can cause serious harm to your ocular wellness if it is not taken care of in a timely manner. That’s what we at Lone Star Vision Associates P.A. are committed to: prompt, effective, expert care.
To properly treat your New Braunfels eye infection, it is necessary to first determine that the cause of it is. Virus, bacteria, parasites, or fungi can all be the source. Each will require a unique approach. Likewise, our eye doctor will identify the part of your eye that is being affected. The conjunctive, which is the thin, clear tissue that covers the whites of your eyes; and your corneas, are most typically at risk. The reason isn’t hard to understand: they are at the front of your eyes. Conjunctivitis is better known as pink eye. Along with keratitis, they are among the most common types of New Braunfels eye infection. You should pay attention to symptoms such as red eyes or red eyelids; watery discharge; yellow, green or bloody discharge; feeling as if there is something in your eye when there isn’t; increased sensitivity to light; blurry vision; loss of vision; a sore on the colored portion of your eye that is either gray or white; and an unexplained fever. Amy of the above indications mean that you should be examined by our eye doctor at the first possible opportunity. It is essential that you act with a sense of urgency. Upon examination and testing, the appropriate treatment option will be identified and then applied.
