What Is An Eye Infection?
Did you know that the parasites, bacteria, fungi as well as the viruses that invade the human body can also attack the surface of the eye? Or even the interior of the eye? Well, this kind of invasion is what is basically termed as an eye infection. So how do you tell that you have an eye infection? It’s pretty much easy to tell if you are suffering from such a condition. First, you will notice some kind of inflammation. This is evident in the conjunctiva, the inner corner of the eye’s surface or the inner eyelid, a condition that is referred to as conjunctivitis. However, these are not the only possible locations that such inflammation can occur. The eyelid, the cornea as well as the liquid that is in the eye are also some possible locations for such inflammation. The blood vessels that feed the eye, the optic nerve and the retina too, can have such inflammations. An eye infection does not necessarily mean that some parts of the eye are inflamed rather; it could also mean that some fungus have affected the supply of blood to the retina or the surface of the eye.
