Bacterial Keratitis Symptoms
Symptoms of bacterial keratitis may include:
- pain in the eye (often sudden)
- reduced vision
- increased light sensitivity
- excessive tearing
- discharge from your eye
Call your ophthalmologist right away if you have any of these symptoms. This is especially important if they come on suddenly. If not treated, a bacterial keratitis eye infection can lead to blindness. Treatment must start right away to prevent vision loss.
