Allergy / Eye Infection Exam:

Allergies are one of the most commonly self-diagnosed problems. Most people assume that if the eyes are itchy and red, then it must be allergies. Ironically, dry eye symptoms present in exactly the same way, which is why over-the-counter allergy eye drops do not work in many cases. 
It is best to get your eyes checked early if you suspect you have an eye infection. Patients generally wait until they are in so much pain or discomfort before making an appointment. By then, the infection can spread from one eye to another. Please remember to make an appointment as soon as possible if you suspect you have an eye infection or any eye problem. Prolonging this visit can potentially cause vision loss if not treated effectively and quickly.
