Virus infection in the eye

Common Questions and Answers about Virus infection in the eye


Avatar f tn Hey grace thank you for your input on this! Yes he did put some sort of drops in my eye and looked through a light. That's when the doc said it can be herpes virus! He also asked me if I had a history of high blood pressure he said I should look out for that as well. I will be getting a igg test done soon. If I do come out positive, will this affect my sexual life? I've never had cold sores before. Can I pass it on to my partner?
Avatar f tn If the virus infection is inactive, and if the scars on the cornea are very superficail then a eximer laser PRK might work, otherwise it may require a partial thickness lamellar keratectomy or a full thickness penetrating corneal transplant. See a cornea Eye MD.
Avatar m tn You may have infected your eye from the throat infection and it might be cleared by the Azithromycin if it is the same organism that is causing the problem. But usually they give you eye drops for an eye infection that have antibiotics in them, so I'm not sure if the oral med will care of the problem. You could also have an allergy, virus in the eye or have accidently got something else in your eye. Try eye drops and if it doesn't clear up in a day or two then see an eye doctor.
Avatar m tn I've have hsv2 for 5+ years now. Today, I used the bathroom touching myself (no noticeable outbreak) walked to the sink and started washing my hands. 5 seconds into washing a "soap blob" landed into my right eye. My question is can the virus transfer from my hand, into the soap blob and infect my eye? My kinda freaking out because it happen.
Avatar f tn About 6 months ago, I had a little cut that I did not yet realize to be herpes. I had the palm heel of my hand on my lip in that spot while plucking my eyebrows. I then moved my hand to get another position and my palm heel was directly on the top of my left cheekbone. I did not vigorously massage it in by any means but it wasn't just a brush of skin either, it was planted for a while.
Avatar m tn For past 1 1/2 years i am having a reccurant viral infection in my left eye. Due to which i have a foggy/blurry vision on my left eye which may decrease if i put the steroid drops more times a day and increases once i stop or decrease the frequency of drops. I have shown this to many specialists including retinal surgeons. They are saying it takes long to cure.
Avatar f tn This is most likely bell’s palsy from the description. If someone has Bell’s palsy, the muscles in their face become temporarily paralyzed. It usually affects just one side of the face. Symptoms appear suddenly one cannot shut eyes and their mouth droops. These are worst about 48 hours after starting. Scientists postulate this as a viral infection, which is making the facial nerve swell, or inflamed. it is more common in diabetics, people sick with cold or flu and pregnant ladies.
122065 tn?1241385329 It could be meningitis or other infection with spread around the eye. If he checks you and this is not the case, then get an eye exam from an ophthalmologist. If you don't have a history of migraines before this, it is unlikely this is a migraine. You may have to go to the emergency room if you feel like you are getting worse and can't reach your doctor. If you have a fever or chills currently, that would make me more concerned. Don't sit on this.
Avatar m tn s a mistake that I used Just A LITTLE water to wash my eyes.(I mean If the HIV virus got inside of my eye with the little water rather than got out of it) I`m so worried,I`d appreciate it if you can answer both of my questions.
Avatar f tn Typically herpes around the eye is from oral herpes moving up the facial nerves to the eye area but in that age group, it sometimes is just from infection at that area specifically ( think how they still tend to touch everything, put things in their mouths as well as rub their eyes frequently). will she outgrow herpes? No she will not. she will always have it. Will she continue to get recurrences for a lifetime? only time will tell. she can go swimming and bathe with her siblings.
Avatar n tn i was vomiting and I thought some might have splashed in or near my eye (tmi sorry) so I got a bottle of water and was squeezing the water into my eye to try and clean it out a bit. after that i took a sip and then put the bottle back down. i thought "maybe i should squirt a little more" and so I took the same bottle and held it up to my eye so my eye was touching the rim and i squirted some more. my question is... i've had testing done that says i have hsv-1.
Avatar f tn Did any bodily fluids from the person you contracted it from get in your eye? There are mucous membranes in the eye which can facilitate the infection there, so yes you can definitely get the infection in the eye. I'm not a doctor, so I cant speak to whether the current antibiotics will cure it.
Avatar m tn First off I just want to say I don't know where I to post this but this is the close one I can find to mine or maybe not the same at all sorry! Hey my name is Louis I'm 19. I've had some type of viral illness for about 23 days now I think. I don't know what kind it is but I'll walk you threw everything.
Avatar m tn hi, I think you can concern with the eye specialist to treat and prevent your eye infection. If there may be required to do any surgery, the eye specialist help you. But try to recover your eyes without surgery.
Avatar m tn Thank God it didn't happen to me,it happened to colege of mine.I know it lives up to 4 days on environmental surfaces,thats why i asked how long can it live in human eye(because its wet i guess it can live a little bit more).I've googled EVERYTHING on the net and did't find ANYTHING about what i asked.Maybe im being a paranoic,but im thinking-what if virus particles remain and after day or two i my eyes got red and hurt(for some reason)and the particles attack the mucous membrane.
Avatar m tn I have been getting tremors in my body, from my hands right to the back of my neck, eye difficulties - somewhat sparkles which I see in my vison 24/7 however my eyes are apparently healthy according to the eye hospital aswell as increased floaters in my vision. I also get waves of pressure build up in my head which lasts between 5-60 seconds along with headaches and light sensitivity.
Avatar n tn ) What type of doctor would i see to diagnose if I had the virus in my eye and 5.) is it possible theoretically that if i did have an infection in my eye I could take measures to continuously prevent the virus from damaging my eye sight? I appreciate your time and help greatly.
Avatar m tn Again he had me start up the steroids again this time only 1 shot in one eye twice a day and just one shot a day in the other. Clearly it was not as bas as the first time. Well after another week of steroids I was again back at 100%. Went back to doc and after the slit lamp exam I was given the all clear. He said my eyes were 100% healthy. He also said that the virus I had was usually an innocuous one but that it could recur at anytime for the next few months or even for the next year.
Avatar n tn Hello, and no this is not a risk for HIV transmission. You will not get HIV from semen in the eye or even blood in the eye. In the real world, HIV is only transmitted by unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles. Transmission takes place inside the body. Air inactivates it. So, this would not result in transmission of the HIV virus and you have no cause for concern or reason to test.
Avatar f tn Ocular herpes occurs when the virus sprouts from nerves within the back of the eye itself not by rubbing on the exterior. Anyone who has an oral HSV1 infection can get ocular herpes except that it happens extremely rarely. You cannot somehow trigger it through self inoculation means you describe.
Avatar n tn In the past 2 days both eyes were hazel, now one eye is normal and the other eye was hazel, now as time passes the one eye that was hazel is now half blue/half hazel in just the one eye! That makes one normal eye and one half normal eye! Once again the basic question, can being immunized give temporary symptoms of the possible diseases in this manner?
Avatar f tn t have anyone in that area? When you are infected, the virus infects the sacral nerves which supply the entire area. You can have lesions anywhere in that entire area regardless of where you are originally infected at. Herpes ob's will heal even without any treatment at all. Probably the rash would've been about the same whether you put antifungals on it or not.
