Some eye infections are highly contagious and can be easily transmitted by simply touching your eye, then touching a common object, such as a television remote, light switch or a doorknob. When another person touches that same object and then touches their own eye, they can easily contract the same infection.
That’s why it’s important to be seen and treated as soon as possible after your first symptoms appear. At William Fruchtman O.D., our eye doctors and technicians have been highly trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the eye.
Depending on the type of eye infection you have, we’ll prescribe a specific course of treatment to return your eye (or eyes) back to normal function. Your treatment may include eye drops, compresses, creams or oral antibiotics.
At William Fruchtman O.D., we have diagnosed and helped to heal many eye infections in our Florida and New Jersey patients:
Pink eye (conjunctivitis)
Trachoma (usually more common in underdeveloped regions)
Herpes simplex virus
Herpes zoster (shingles)
