Is it okay to smoke if you have an eye infection?

No! Even if you do smoke and have been smoking for years and trying to quit, it is much better for your immune system if you refrain from smoking during an eye infection. Studies have shown that even the equivalent of 1-2 cigarettes a day reduces the immune response to infection and makes it harder to clear the infection.
Smoking. Sorry to be so flippant but it is only ok to smoke if you want to increase your risk of many many diseases including eye disease such as macular degeneration. Also if you want to die younger than you should or live with cancer or gasping for breath then it is ok to smoke. I don't ever wonder why there seem to be very few smokers in their 60's and less and less in the 70's 80's and 90's. Guess?
Yes. But you should try to quit smoking in general to preserve your long-term health. Smoking has been associated with age-related macular degeneration, as well as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
