In brief: Pain, redness, blur

There are many types of eye infections, and they don't all look the same.
Eye infections can be caused by bacteria or by viruses, and changes quite similar to eye infections can also be caused by other problems in the body such as autoimmune diseases. Warning signs include eye pain, redness where the eye is usually white, mucous discharge, and blurred vision. See your eye md if you're worried!
