Treatment

There’s an easy-to-use GoldenEye® treatment for your bacterial eye infection

  • Conjunctivitis
  • Styes
  • Blepharitis

The science, how does it work…

GoldenEye® stops bacteria from growing and multiplying, controlling the numbers causing the eye infection and helping to relieve your symptoms. The remaining bacteria die or are killed by your body’s immune system.

Bacterial Conjunctivitis

What is it?

Bacterial conjunctivitis is a common condition which causes inflammation of the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of the eye (the conjunctiva). Conjunctivitis is sometimes referred to as red-eye. It can affect one eye at first, but usually affects both eyes after a short time. It can occur when you are run down or your immune system is low, which is why many people get conjunctivitis when they have a cold. Conjunctivitis is highly contagious and can be spread easily through contact with the discharge from the eyes. This is why the condition often starts in one eye and then spreads to the other and also spreads easily from person to person.

Stye

What is it?

Styes develop when a gland at the edge of the eyelid becomes infected. Resembling a ‘pimple’ on the eyelid, a stye can grow on the inside or outside of the lid. This will usually only affect one eye, although it is possible for both eyes to be affected.

The key to successful management is to get the infection site to form a ‘point’. A warm compress should help the point to burst on its own to help relieve the discomfort.

Important: DO NOT try to burst a stye or remove an eyelash yourself. This can spread the infection.

Blepharitis

What is it?

Blepharitis is the medical term for inflamed eyelids. Blepharitis can be caused by a type of bacteria that lives on the skin or a skin condition, such as atopic dermatitis. In most cases both eyes are affected, but one eye can be more affected than the other. The symptoms tend to be worse in the morning. Most people experience repeated episodes followed by periods with no symptoms.
