How Lone Star Vision Optometry in Plano and Celina, TX Can Help

Symptoms like dry eye, eye pain, eye discharge, redness in the eye, swelling, itching, and blurring are all signs that you may be experiencing an eye infection. That’s where Lone Star Vision can help diagnose and treat your condition with diagnostic tools, expert care, and a thorough analysis of your medical history.  Here are some of the most common infections you may experience.

Our Optometrists Explain Infective Conjunctivitis

Infective conjunctivitis, otherwise known as pink eye, is a highly contagious disease that causes inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the thin membrane that protects the surface of your eyeball and the inner portion of your eyelids. Pink eye can have a variety of cause, including viruses, bacteria, allergens, and sometimes other irritants like dust or smoke.

Most pink eye sufferers feature redness in the white portion of the eye, an increase in tearing and possible discharge. In some cases, pink eye can cause pain.

While many pink eye cases are minor and resolve within two weeks, there are cases that can develop into severe corneal inflammation and even threaten your eyesight.

At Lone Star Vision, we can help gauge whether you have a serious case of conjunctivitis and provide you with a variety of medications and treatments to reduce inflammation to keep your eyes healthy. Depending on your type of conjunctivitis, we can also devise a plan to help you, such as identifying if an allergen is causing your conjunctivitis to continuously flare up.

Our Optometrists Explain Viral Keratitis

Many are unaware that the herpes virus can also infect the eye. However, this virus can cause a variety of symptoms, including sensitivity to light, red eye, blurry vision, and pain. For this disease, you will require prescription medication such as antiviral eye drops, or oral tablets, such as Zirgan, which targets the virus. Typically treatment lasts for 10 days but it all depends on your case of viral keratitis.

Our Optometrists Explain Acanthamoeba Keratitis

In most cases, viruses cause keratitis, however there is a serious threat of parasitic infection as well from Ancathamoeba. Although rare, this infection can actually threaten your vision and lead to blindness.

It’s important that you work with your optometrists on preventative strategies for this disease, which most occurs when people fail to maintain adequate hygiene for their contact lenses and take prevention measures like swimming without your contacts. Usually a combination of antimicrobial agents will be used to help treat this condition.

Infections From Eye Injury Or Surgery

Your eye can also become infected from surgeries or injuries, such as in the case of endophthalmitis. This kind of infection occurs when bacteria or other infectious agents penetrate the eye’s interior, which can lead to blindness in many cases. This kind of condition requires quick treatment, often with powerful antibiotics. After you undergo certain surgeries, such as cataract surgery, you need to work with your optometrist to monitor and evaluate risk for these type of infections.
