Can you get a staph infection in your eyes?

A staph infection can occur anywhere in the body. If you have not seen an Opthalmologist you may even have herpes in your eye. Do not go to an Optomitrist, only an Opthalmologist, the latter is a MEDICAL DOCTOR same as a Neurosurgion, Endocrinologist and the like. An Optometrist does not have the benefit of medical school for 12 plus years. A blood test will show a staph infection is present, and the irritation or pain will show itself in the area of the body affected. So, yes, a staph infection can occur anywhere in the body. Don't wait, get to an Opthalmologist. If you do not have insurance GO TO YOUR COUNTY HOSPITAL. Good Luck, a Staph infection can be cured, herpes a virus cannot but can be treated well. lyn
