Eye Infections

Pink Eye

Pink eye is a common eye infection that has affected many of us.  It is usually bacterial or viral and is passed on easily, especially among children.  While it’s not a serious eye disease, the bacterial kind needs to be treated because the symptoms do not go away without proper treatment.


Styes are bacterial infections that appear as small bumps on the eyelids.  They usually go away on their own.  However, there are cases where surgical draining or antibiotic drops may be necessary.


Blepharitis is a common eye disorder caused by bacterial or skin conditions.  It causes your eyelids to appear red, irritated, and crusty.  Your eye doctor can recommend the best course of action for treating blepharitus.
