Here at Palisades Optometrics, our eye care experts serving the 07605 zip code area, led by Dr. Ronald F. Luxenburg, are dedicated to providing only the highest quality eye care services to each and every one of our patients. One of the most common eye issues that we treat our patients for is an infection. Eye infection can occur for any number of reasons. Many people who wear contacts experience contact lens related infections. When it comes to preventing contact lens related infections, hygiene is key. Make sure that you thoroughly wash your hands before handling your lenses or touching your eyes. In addition, make sure that you cleanse your lenses daily according to instructions given by our eye doctor that serves the Bergen County area.
Still, infections can occur despite your commitment to high quality hygiene. Some signs associated with eye infections include: itchiness, redness, excessive tearing, discharge from the eye, changes to your vision, and more. If you ever experience symptoms that are out of the ordinary for your eye health and vision, you should schedule an appointment with our eye care expert, Dr. Luxenburg, as soon as possible. In some cases, such as conjunctivitis, or “pink eye,” the infection is highly contagious and requires medical attention with antibiotics in order to relive the symptoms and keep you from spreading the illness to others. We always treat every patient with the utmost level of care and compassion . We will fully evaluate your needs and give you the most effective treatment options available for your eye infection or any other issue that might occur.
