Colds and flu and your eyes

Colds and flu and your eyes

We are coming up on cold and flu season rapidly and a number of patients are currently suffering with fall allergies. These can and do affect your eyes and vision.

Red, puffy eyes along with a runny nose are strong signs/symptoms of a cold or the flu. Sometime the presence of a swollen, painful lymph node in front of the ear is an indication that this is viral.

The conjunctiva becomes congested, red and swollen. This is conjunctivitis, of which the are three types, viral, bacterial and allergic and at time there may be a mixed conjunctivitis. Some of these types can be very contagious and others no so much or not at all.

We can not treat red eyes over the phone. The differences between the various conjunctivitis presentations requires a proper evaluation to determine the best course of action and treatment.
