Here at Sonoran Desert Eye Center, we are pleased to offer red eye examinations.
Red eyes are a sign of ocular inflammation. There are many different conditions that can cause red eyes, including: injury, infectious conjunctivitis, blepharitis, foreign body, scratches, allergies, hemorrhages, and much more. When the eyes are red, they may also have symptoms of pain, itching, light sensitivity, and general irritation. You may also notice discharge and trouble with your vision.
It is important to have a thorough examination with a history to help determine what is causing your red eye. If left untreated, some causes of red eye can lead to permanent visual reduction from scarring or other complications.
Eye care practitioners have the equipment and special testing to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of red eyes appropriately and in a timely manner. We recommend visiting our office first for any eye problem so that we can initiate treatment and reduce long-term effects. We are also here for you when your primary care physician or urgent care clinic is unable to help.
