Your eye care provider will:

  • Perform an examination with a slit lamp microscope. The slit lamp focuses a narrow “slit” of light onto the eye. A slit lamp exam is a normal part of an eye exam.
  • Your provider may apply a fluorescein dye to your eye. This yellow dye highlights any damage to your cornea.
  • Take a sample of the infected tissue. The results will show the type of infection and guide medication choice for treatment.
