Eye Irritation & Infection Treatment

Walk-in Urgent Care Clinic for Eye Infection and Irritation

Walk-in Urgent Care Clinic for Eye Infection and Irritation

While eye infections are often caused by viruses (for example, “pink eye”), allergies and bacteria can also cause them. Allergic eye conditions are mild and usually go fade without treatment besides over-the-counter antihistamines. However, bacterial and certain viral eye infections like keratitis (inflammation of the cornea) and styes (eyelid infections) can cause serious problems if they are not treated promptly. To protect your vision, we recommend early evaluation as soon as you experience eye infection symptoms.

At FCCMG, we offer the best, yet affordable, eye infection treatment with customized medical care and assistance. Our urgent care clinics in Irvine, Fountain Valley, and Costa Mesa are open 7 days a week with extended hours.

What Could Be Causing Irritation and Infection to Your Eyes?

Common triggers of eye irritation include:

  • Excessive scratching or rubbing of the eye.
  • Exposure to irritants or allergens such as chemicals, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and smoke.
  • Bacteria such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Haemophilus influenza, Pseudomonas, and Moraxella.
  • Viruses such as Adenoviruses, Herpes simplex virus, Varicella-zoster virus, Rhinoviruses, Enteroviruses, and Parvoviruses.

Also, certain medical conditions can also cause eye infections, such as:

  • Eczema – A skin condition that causes dry, inflamed, and itchy skin. Non-intact skin is more prone to developing conjunctivitis (pink eye) that inflames or irritates the blood vessels in your eye, causing redness and swelling.
  • Psoriasis – A skin disease that causes itchy, scaly patches on your skin due to inflammation. Psoriasis can cause uveitis, which is the inflammation of the uvea, the middle layer of the eyeball featuring the iris.

Eye Irritation and Infection Symptoms

  • Eye pain
  • Sensitivity to light- Discomfort and pain when exposed to bright light.
  • Blurred vision
  • Burning discomfort, or tearing-up
  • Redness
  • Puffy eyelids
  • Discharge - A watery or pus-like substance drains from your eyes.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, visit our urgent care center immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment.

How Do We Diagnose and Treat Eye Irritation and Infections

When you arrive at our urgent care center for eye infection treatment, we will examine your eyes for the presence of any foreign object and will also check for any redness, swelling, discharge, or surface damage.

We will also review your medical history to determine whether you have any history of allergies.
