Depends. For some infections, a few days of antibiotics will clear the infection. Other infections may last longer. See your local ophthalmologist for assistance and care.
Yes. The average range can be a few days to a few weeks, depending on the type, severity, involvement of ocular structures, etc.
Have ptosis surgery in a week now being treated for an eye infection eyes are watering will it be canceled if it does not clear up?
Probably. Far better to postpone the surgery until the infection clears up.
Likely. You should not have elective surgery if you have an infection.
Eye infection. Usually a bacterial infection will require therapy.
Time for consult. I'd visit an ophthalmologist & see if their advanced equipment & experience can help define the issue.
Coincidence? It may be that you simply contracted your own eye infection with a different virus, independent of your interaction with the person 2 weeks ago. But also sometimes different viruses have long "incubation periods" and it may take some time for the virus to cause you symptoms after you acquire it.
Not likely. The germ that causes strep does not usually cause infection in the eye.
Sure it's strep? Are you sure it was strep? If it was just a sore throat that was not confirmed as strep, then you may be having viral conjunctivitis from an adenovirus.
MY left eye is blurry at when viewing further than 4 ft. I've had an eye infection and im using zylet. But its been a week and its still blurry.
Please see eye doc. To make sure nothing serious is going on.
I have an eye infection & its very contiguous. I have eye drops that I need to use every three hours for a week & I have school, should I stay home?
Stay Home. Conjunctivitis is very contagious and until the discharge has cleared you need to stay home from school. Bathe the eye frequently and continue the antibiotic drops as prescribed. Follow up with your doctor.
