It can be caused by various factors such as bacteria, viruses, allergies, or irritants. The aim of this guide is to provide a comprehensive overview of the symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and patient education for eye infection/inflammation.

Symptoms

  • Redness of the eye
