Physical examination, patient history, microbiological testing and other tests help to diagnose eye infection.

A complete patient history including family history, details of co-morbid disease conditions and medications helps to diagnose the infection and determine its possible cause. This is followed by a complete physical examination. Tests that help to diagnose eye infections include:

Eye Infection Diagnose Test
  • Culture: Culture of the eye discharge can help to diagnose the cause of eye infection.
  • PCR: Molecular biology techniques like PCR (polymerase chain reaction) can help in the quick diagnosis of the eye infection.
  • Imaging studies: Imaging studies like X-ray, CT scan and MRI can be used to study the spread of the infection into the surrounding soft tissues and bones.
