• Can ocular chlamydia be spread through sex?


    Question:

    I have chlamydia in my eye and am taking medication for it. Can it be spread through sex?


    Answer:

    Chlamydial conjunctivitis is a sexually transmitted disease spread by contact with the eye by infectious genital secretions. Because most people who get chlamydial conjunctivitis also have systemic chlamydia, they are usually treated with both oral and topical antibiotics. If someone has systemic chlamydia, it can be spread through sexual contact.
