Hello Ayu, thank you for asking.
Eye infections can be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. How to enter various microorganisms, varies. Microorganisms can enter from wounds, dust, insect bites, foreign matter, and so on. Infection in the eye gives symptoms of red eyes, pain or itching, swelling and watering, there may be pus, decreased vision, or can also be accompanied by headaches.
Based on your description, possibilities that can occur include:
Conjunctivitis (inflammation of the lining of the eyes)
Keratitis (inflammation of the cornea)
Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids)
Uveitis (inflammation of the inside of the eye)
It is better for your father to immediately consult an eye doctor. Do not wait too long, especially because of eye infections accompanied by pus, can cause damage to the cornea and scar tissue in the cornea. If the cornea is damaged or scar tissue is present, vision will be interrupted so that treatment will become more complicated. Please do not use any medicine without doctor's advice. The doctor will first assess the extent of the infection, then determine the actions that will be taken.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
