In brief: Yes

Not sure what you mean by regular, but primary care and er docs treat common eye infections, so do optometrists and ophthalmologists.

In brief: Yes

Any ophthalmologist is qualified to diagnose and treat eye infections.
We're first md's or do's and have completed medical school and internship - we just have a specialty in ophthalmology.
