EYE INFECTIONS - DESCRIPTION


Eye problems most commonly affect parts of the eye and can cause a variety of vision disorders. Red eye is a general term used in ophthalmology for various inflammatory conditions that characterize a common symptom of hyperemia, i.e., redness of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is a thin transparent mucosa that covers the posterior surface of the eyelids and the anterior surface of the sclera. The most common infectious conditions of the eyes include conjunctivitis (conjunctivitis), eyelid infection (blepharitis), lacrimal sac inflammation (dacryocystitis), corneal inflammation (keratitis), iris or middle layer inflammation (uveitis), sclera inflammation (scleritis) and sudden increase in intraocular pressure with optic nerve damage (acute glaucoma). Retinal infection (retinitis) can occur in people with a weakened immune system.

Although the cause of eye inflammation can be the result of environmental influences (wind, cold, dust), it can also be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. An inflamed eye can be the result of seborrheic dermatitis, which mainly affects the scalp and eyelids.
Vision problems can be associated with difficulties affecting the veins and arteries in the eye, with a disorder of the optic nerve, and can also be the result of high blood pressure or diabetes. They are often part of the aging process in the retina and eye tissue.

Symptoms include bloodshot eyes, itching or pain, photosensitivity, visual impairment, limited vision, blackheads in the visual field, watery and sore eyes after prolonged viewing or reading, inflammation or infection along the edges of the eyelids often with peeling skin, painful redness and swelling under the eye and night blindness.
