Eye Infections

Eye Infections and Treatment

Harmful bacteria and viruses are the main causes of eye infections. Viruses and bacteria can be introduced to the eyes on a person’s hands, through their sinuses or even by means of contact lenses which are not properly cared for. When the body’s immune system fails to immediately eradicate a virus or bacteria in the eyes, an infection will occur. Several different types of eye infections – both bacterial and viral – exist, but some are more common than others.
