Because the outer surface of the eye comes into direct contact with the environment, it is often susceptible to external eye infections and injuries. There are also hereditary conditions that can cause disorders of the outer eye. The usual symptoms of external eye disease are redness and irritation that don’t improve with treatment and poor vision not related to retina problems.
At Pacific Northwest Eye Associates, our physicians have many years of experience diagnosing and treating external eye diseases. To make a comprehensive eye examination appointment, please call us today at 253-759-5555 to set up an appointment, or click here.
