An infection of the eyes characterized by the presence in conjunctival epithelial cells of inclusion bodies indistinguishable from those of trachoma. It is acquired by infants during birth and by adults from swimming pools. The etiological agent is CHLAMYDIA TRACHOMATIS whose natural habitat appears to be the genito-urinary tract. Inclusion conjunctivitis is a less severe disease than trachoma and usually clears up spontaneously.
Plasmids controlling the synthesis of hemolysin by bacteria.

The surgical removal of the eyeball leaving the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents intact.
Color of the iris.
Centers for storing various parts of the eye for future use.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.

An ocular disease, occurring in many forms, having as its primary characteristics an unstable or a sustained increase in the intraocular pressure which the eye cannot withstand without damage to its structure or impairment of its function. The consequences of the increased pressure may be manifested in a variety of symptoms, depending upon type and severity, such as excavation of the optic disk, hardness of the eyeball, corneal anesthesia, reduced visual acuity, seeing of colored halos around lights, disturbed dark adaptation, visual field defects, and headaches. (Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
The transparent, semigelatinous substance that fills the cavity behind the CRYSTALLINE LENS of the EYE and in front of the RETINA. It is contained in a thin hyaloid membrane and forms about four fifths of the optic globe.
The white, opaque, fibrous, outer tunic of the eyeball, covering it entirely excepting the segment covered anteriorly by the cornea. It is essentially avascular but contains apertures for vessels, lymphatics, and nerves. It receives the tendons of insertion of the extraocular muscles and at the corneoscleral junction contains the canal of Schlemm. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

(Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed, p109)
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
The clear, watery fluid which fills the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye. It has a refractive index lower than the crystalline lens, which it surrounds, and is involved in the metabolism of the cornea and the crystalline lens. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed, p319)
The most anterior portion of the uveal layer, separating the anterior chamber from the posterior. It consists of two layers - the stroma and the pigmented epithelium. Color of the iris depends on the amount of melanin in the stroma on reflection from the pigmented epithelium.
A ring of tissue extending from the scleral spur to the ora serrata of the RETINA. It consists of the uveal portion and the epithelial portion. The ciliary muscle is in the uveal portion and the ciliary processes are in the epithelial portion.

Amniotic membrane transplantation for ocular surface reconstruction. (1/86)

AIMS: To evaluate the efficacy of amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) for ocular surface reconstruction. METHODS: 10 consecutive patients who underwent AMT were included. The indications were: group A, cases with persistent epithelial defect after corneal abscess (n = 1), radiation (n = 1), or chemical burn (n = 3); group B, cases with epithelial defect and severe stromal thinning and impending or recent perforation, due to chemical burn (two patients, three eyes) or corneal abscess (n = 2); group C, to promote corneal epithelium healing and prevent scarring after symblepharon surgery with extensive corneo-conjunctival adhesion (n = 1). Under sterile conditions amniotic membrane was prepared from a fresh placenta of a seronegative pregnant woman and stored at -70 degrees C. This technique involved the use of amniotic membrane to cover the entire cornea and perilimbal area in groups A and B, and the epithelial defect only in group C. RESULTS: The cornea healed satisfactorily in four of five patients in group A, but the epithelial defect recurred in one of these patients. After AMT three patients underwent limbal transplantation and one penetrating keratoplasty and cataract extraction. In group B amniotic membrane transplantation was not helpful, and all cases underwent an urgent tectonic corneal graft. Surgery successfully released the symblepharon, promoted epithelialisation and prevented adhesions in the case of group C. CONCLUSION: AMT was effective to promote corneal healing in patients with persistent epithelial defect, and appeared to be helpful after surgery to release corneo-conjunctival adhesion. Most cases required further surgery for visual and ocular surface rehabilitation. Amniotic membrane used as a patch was not effective to prevent tectonic corneal graft in cases with severe stromal thinning and impending or recent perforation.  (+info)

Multiplex polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis of viral and chlamydial keratoconjunctivitis. (2/86)

PURPOSE: To develop a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the detection of adenovirus, herpes simplex virus, and Chlamydia trachomatis in conjunctival swabs. METHODS: Oligonucleotide primers for detection of the 3 agents were combined in one reaction and evaluated for optimal performance using control DNAs of adenovirus type 2, herpes simplex virus, and C. trachomatis plasmid. The multiplex PCR was evaluated prospectively against its corresponding uniplex PCRs, virus isolation, Chlamydia Amplicor PCR, and an immunoassay technique (immune dot blot test) in a total of 805 conjunctival swabs from patients with suspected viral and chlamydial keratoconjunctivitis. RESULTS: The multiplex PCR was as sensitive as uniplex PCRs for the detection of the agents in clinical specimens. In the prospective study, 48 of 49 (98%) clinical specimens were positive for adenovirus by the multiplex PCR compared with 26 of 49 (53%) by adenovirus isolation. For herpes simplex virus detection, the multiplex PCR had a sensitivity of 92% (34/37) compared with 94.5% (35/37) by cell culture. The multiplex PCR produced identical results to the Amplicor PCR (21/21; 100%) compared with 71% (15/21) by the immune dot blot test. CONCLUSIONS: With clinical specimens the multiplex PCR was as sensitive as its respective uniplex PCRs but more sensitive than adenovirus isolation and as sensitive as herpes simplex virus isolation or C. trachomatis Amplicor PCR. It has the potential to replace several diagnostic tests with consequent savings in cost. The test also reduces the risk of misdiagnosis by the clinicians.  (+info)

Murine cytomegalovirus infection causes apoptosis of uninfected retinal cells. (3/86)

PURPOSE: To determine the role of apoptosis in prevention and/or exacerbation of retinal disease in a mouse model of cytomegalovirus retinitis. METHODS: Immunocompetent or T-cell- depleted BALB/c mice were injected with murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) by supraciliary injection. On sequential days after infection, mice were killed, and eyes were harvested for cryosectioning or for DNA extraction. Ocular sections were stained with monoclonal antibodies specific for MCMV or for T cells or used in the TdT-dUTP terminal nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay to detect apoptotic cells. RESULTS: In immunocompetent BALB/c mice, TUNEL assays revealed that a large area of the retina was apoptotic in relation to the relatively small number of MCMV-infected cells that were observed in the subjacent choroid and/or retinal pigment epithelium. In infected eyes from T-cell- depleted mice, there were more TUNEL-positive cells, and the areas of apoptosis were more extensive than in immunocompetent mice. These observations correlated with the increased extent of MCMV infection that is observed in the eyes of T-cell- depleted mice. However, irrespective of immune status, TUNEL-positive apoptotic cells were present mainly in areas of the retina overlying areas of MCMV-infected choroid and/or retinal pigment epithelium. More intense DNA laddering, indicative of increased apoptosis, was observed in the posterior segments of the eyes of T-cell- depleted mice after supraciliary inoculation with murine cytomegalovirus compared with less intense DNA laddering in the posterior segments of eyes of immunocompetent MCMV-infected mice. CONCLUSIONS: The ability of the mouse's immune system to control MCMV infections in some tissues depends on induction of apoptosis in virus-infected cells. However, in the retina, cells undergoing apoptosis were not virus-infected, a finding that suggests that apoptosis of uninfected retinal cells may play a role in the pathogenesis of MCMV retinitis.  (+info)

Postmortem histological survey of the ocular lesions in a British population of AIDS patients. (4/86)

AIMS: To study ocular pathology and systemic correlations in a series of 73 postmortem eyes from British patients who died from AIDS before the introduction of a HAART regimen. METHODS: The eyes were studied with conventional histology, special histochemical stainings, and immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: 72.6% of the cases showed chronic uveal inflammation, caused by opportunistic agents in 37.7% of them (cytomegalovirus (CMV) in 30.1%, C neoformans in 5.6%, and Gram positive bacteria in 1.8%). Cytoid bodies were noted in 10/73 eyes, three linked to CMV retinitis. Six retinal haemorrhages, four of which were secondary to CMV, were found. 14 specimens (19. 1%) showed foci of calcification, and a further 11 (15%) calcium oxalate deposits. In no cases were the calcific deposits suspected clinically. Six eyes (8.2%) did not show any abnormality. CONCLUSIONS: CMV retinitis is the most common (28.7%, 21/73) ocular infection in this series and may occur either during or in the absence of systemic dissemination. Conversely, ocular cryptococcosis appears to be an epiphenomenon of systemic and CNS disease. No other opportunistic ocular infections were present in this series. Interesting findings were the presence of intraocular precipitates of calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate or carbonate in a significant number of cases (15% and 19%, respectively), and the high prevalence of idiopathic uveal inflammation (43.8%).  (+info)

Effect of a novel mucoadhesive polysaccharide obtained from tamarind seeds on the intraocular penetration of gentamicin and ofloxacin in rabbits. (5/86)

This report describes the efficacy of a novel mucoadhesive polymer, the tamarind seed polysaccharide, as a delivery system for the ocular administration of hydrophilic and hydrophobic antibiotics. Healthy rabbits were subjected to repeated ocular instillations with either conventional gentamicin or ofloxacin or these agents viscosified with the tamarind seed polysaccharide. Administration of viscosified preparations produced antibiotic concentrations both in the aqueous humour and cornea that were significantly higher than those achieved with the drugs alone. The increased drug absorption and the prolonged drug elimination phase obtained with the viscosified formulations indicate the usefulness of the tamarind seed polysaccharide as an ophthalmic delivery system for topical administration of antibiotics.  (+info)

Users' demands regarding dental safety glasses. Combining a quantitative approach and grounded theory for the data analysis. (6/86)

Eye infections are common among dentists and many are concerned, but few are using proper eye protection. To understand users' demands behind the low use of safety glasses, all dental teams in Sweden were asked which factors they found most important when choosing dental safety glasses, and rate the importance of 31 statements regarding ergonomic aspects of dental safety glasses in a questionnaire. Data were analysed using the Grounded Theory and a quantitative approach. Results showed that dentists ranked the visual aspects as most important and chair assistants the protective aspects. The highly visual demanding work performed by dentists requires safety glasses that are not yet available on the market, which might explain the low use.  (+info)

Non-trachomatous corneal opacities in the Gambia--aetiology and visual burden. (7/86)

AIMS: National blindness surveys conducted in the Gambia in 1986 and 1996 showed an increase in blindness and visual impairment from non-trachomatous opacity. This study aimed to investigate the aetiology of these opacities and to assess the resulting visual burden. METHODS: A population-based, randomised blindness survey was conducted in the Gambia in 1996. Patients with visual impairment or blindness were examined by an ophthalmologist with a slit lamp. Causes of corneal opacity were determined as accurately as possible by clinical history and examination. RESULTS: A total of 154 patients with non trachomatous corneal opacity were examined of whom 39 had bilateral opacities and 115, unilateral. Causes included corneal infection, measles/vitamin A deficiency, harmful traditional practices and trauma (unilateral scarring). Overall, corneal pathology alone was responsible for bilateral visual impairment or blindness in 19 (12%) patients and unilateral visual impairment or blindness in 88 (57%) patients. Those patients with bilateral visual impairment or blindness (mean age 59, SD) were older (P= 0.003) than others (mean age 44, SD = 20). The use of harmful traditional eye practices was associated with bilateral corneal blindness or visual impairment (RR = 2.63, 95% CI 1.11-6.21, P = 0.04). Although none of the corneal scars reported here were attributed to trachoma, in patients over the age of 45, the prevalence of trachomatous conjunctival scarring in this group was 38.8% compared to 19.4% of the whole nationwide sample. DISCUSSION: Strategies for the prevention (including the quest for cheaper anti-microbial drugs and co-operation with traditional healers) and surgical treatment of these corneal opacities are discussed.  (+info)

Incidence and risk factors for microbial keratitis in Hong Kong: comparison with Europe and North America. (8/86)

PURPOSE: To establish the incidence, etiology and risk factors for microbial keratitis (MK) in Hong Kong. METHODS: Two hundred and twenty-three new cases of presumed MK were recruited over a period of 17 months and comprehensive microbiologic studies performed. A nested case-control study was pursued for patients wearing contact lenses (CLW) to determine risk factors for MK with regards to types of CLW and hygiene practice. RESULTS: Of the 223 patients recruited, 59 (26%) wore contact lenses. Corneal scrapes yielded positive cultures from 77 patients (35% overall, 56 non-CLW, 21 CLW). Two hundred and six CLW volunteers were recruited to participate in the case-control study, of whom 135 were matched with 45 CLW patients. The annual incidence of MK was 0.63 per 10,000 population and 3.4 per 10,000 CLW with rates for daily, extended and rigid lens wear of 3.09, 9.30 and 0.44 per 10,000 CLW respectively. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the dominant bacterial pathogen. Six cases of Acanthamoeba keratitis occurred, five in CLW (incidence 0.33 per 10,000 CLW) and one following corneal abrasion. Non-CLW developed MK at a peak age of 73, which is 10 years younger than expected for Scotland and USA. CONCLUSIONS: Previous ocular surface disease and trauma were the main risk factors for MK in Hong Kong. CLW appears at least as safe as that found in Scotland and the USA. Acanthamoeba keratitis was detected but with an incidence rate five times lower than Scotland. Factors predisposing hydrogel CLWs to MK, that were statistically significant, included overnight wear, poor hygiene and smoking.  (+info)

Corneal culture should be performed when the infected area is large (,1mm to 2mm), centrally located and worsens after initial treatment. Sabourauds agar and fungal smear microscope slides are best at demonstrating fungal growth, while blood and chocolate agar are typically used for bacteria. Gram stains are also helpful in determining bacterial causes. Avoiding the eyelids and eyelashes while performing a culture will decrease the risk of potential contamination. If the epithelium is closed, debridement is recommended to access the infiltrative area where active invasion is occurring.1-5 Research shows that infectious keratitis should be treated as bacterial until a fungal etiology can be confirmed.2,3 Primary reasoning supporting this approach is due to the high toxicity of topical antifungal agents to the cornea. Currently, the only topical antifungal commercially available is Natacyn. Any other topical antifungal must be made by a compounding pharmacy. Sometimes geographic location, cost ...

Safety glasses are the clown shoes of fear. I have seen all the shelter shows -- once -- and I have observed a noticeably pregnant woman put on safety glasses in order to undertake the demolition of perfectly good tile in her tract home bathroom. Its not unwise to wear safety glasses if youre determined to strike ceramic tile with a sledgehammer. Its just really dumb to think that striking ceramic tile with a sledgehammer is how demolition is accomplished. The pregnant woman was wearing flip flops in order to display her painted toenails to the public. People who understand risk and respect the process theyve undertaken do not perform demolition in open-toed shoes while pregnant. Believing that wearing safety glasses under those circumstances bestows safety is magical, cargo cult thinking. Magical thinking doesnt result in safety, ever. It results in paranoia with recklessness ladled all over it ...

  • In 2012, CDC, state and local health departments, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigated a multistate outbreak of Fusarium incarnatum-equiseti species complex endophthalmitis associated with Brilliant Blue-G, a type of dye used during eye surgery, and Bipolaris endophthalmitis associated with eye injections of a steroid called triamcinolone. (
  • We also have very low rates of two infections that are more relevant to ophthalmology - adenovirus and endophthalmitis. (
  • The FDA stated it received reports of fungal endophthalmitis (eye infections) in patients given BBG supplied by Franck's Pharmacy during eye surgeries. (
  • Treating with an inappropriate drop or ointment can allow an infection to continue to develop, causing further damage to the eye and possible loss of vision. (
  • Putting some Neosporin or Terramycin ointment in her eye while keeping it clean may help. (
  • If left untreated, these infections can lead to scarring, which can cause permanent vision loss and may require a corneal transplant. (
  • Left untreated, eye infections can spread or lead to vision loss. (
  • Using data from Moorfields Eye Hospital, scientists found a threefold increase in the eye infection since 2011 in South East England. (
  • Moorfields Eye Hospital was where the researchers focused the study, looking at cases of the infection at the hospital from 1985 through 2016. (
  • If the infection was caused by a herpes virus, Aciclovir can be prescribed. (
  • Trauma and some types of infections (e.g. feline herpes virus) may also lead to ulcers, an erosion of tissue off the surface of the eye. (
  • When a person carrying the virus becomes immunocompromised (for example their immune system becomes weakened) due to HIV , medications (steroids, chemotherapy ), age, and perhaps stress , the virus is more likely to become 'active' and incite an outbreak that may include an eye infection. (
  • Officials are puzzled by an outbreak of a potentially blinding eye infection that led to the removal of a contact solution from stores. (
  • Health officials and eye doctors are puzzled by an outbreak of a rare but potentially blinding eye infection that led the manufacturer of a contact lens cleaning solution to withdraw one of its products this weekend. (

  • If you have one, your eyes will be red and your vision may be a bit blurry. (
  • Viral infections in the eye may cause your eyes to feel uncomfortable, and some infections may result in blurry vision. (
  • [ 1 , 2 ] In a nationwide investigation of AK cases from 2008 to 2011, we found that 93% of case patients were contact lens wearers and that poor contact lens hygiene was the most significant risk factor for infection. (
  • This behavior was associated with a risk for infection that was 4 times higher than the risk for contact lens wearers who did not top off. (
  • The researchers' findings were published today in the British Journal of Ophthalmology , and while anyone can contract the infection, contact lens wearers were found to be at a higher risk. (
  • The researchers simultaneously conducted a study focused strictly on contact lens wearers -- 63 with the infection and 213 without -- from 2011-2014. (
  • Clearly, a huge segment of the population does not go to my eye doctor because there are about 41 million contact lens wearers in the US alone. (
  • The report, which surveyed 1000 contact lens wearers, found that 99 percent of those who wear contacts do not follow correct safety protocols, doing things that might lead to serious eye infection and other problems. (
  • As we wrote last year in another blog, even though some types of lenses are meant to be slept in, infections arise more frequently when contact lens wearers do just that. (
  • Doctors also need to be more suspicious about the possibility of such infections because many cases have been initially attributed to the herpes simplex virus or other microbes, which respond to drugs that do not help patients with acanthamoeba, Dr. Jones said. (
  • Acanthamoeba infections have been reported in many countries. (
  • Because of high levels of Acanthamoeba found in the water in the United Kingdom, the infection seems to be more prevalent there than in other countries. (
  • The C.D.C. has investigated 102 patients who had confirmed acanthamoeba infections as of June 25. (
  • The purpose of this study was to perform molecular characterization of Staphylococcus aureus isolates causing a variety of eye infections from two major eye care hospitals in India. (
  • Epidemic methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus 15 (ST22) is a major ST found in health care as well as community settings in non-eye infections in India, but only one methicillin-sensitive S. aureus isolate belonging to ST22 was detected. (
  • Twenty-three suffered some degree of vision loss and 24 patients had to undergo another eye surgery, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (
  • In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported an alarming increase in syphilis infection rates, and the numbers have continued to rise since, with rates highest in men who have sex with men (MSM). (
  • This undated photo provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows Thelazia gulosa, a type of eye worm seen in cattle in the northern United States and southern Canada, but never before in humans. (
  • Two other types of Thelazia eye worm infections had been seen in people before, but never this kind, according to Richard Bradbury of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (
  • In the study, led by Andrea Gambotto, M.D., assistant professor of surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the researchers investigated the antiviral activity of gamma globulin (Ig) on human "wild-type" adenovirus as well as adenovirus subtypes isolated from patients diagnosed with viral eye infections. (
  • In the cell culture (in vitro) studies, less than 10 milligrams per milliliter (mg/ml) of Ig significantly neutralized all of the wild-type strains of adenovirus, and the same concentration of Ig also neutralized almost 90 percent of the various adenovirus subtypes isolated from patients with eye infections. (
  • More importantly, Ig neutralized adenovirus at least as well as cidofovir, another antiviral drug that proved to be a potent inhibitor of adenovirus eye infections in early trials but was never approved by the FDA due to unacceptable side effects. (
  • Six unrelated outbreaks of epidemic keratoconjunctivitis linked to human adenovirus underscore the importance of infection control measures in ophthalmology, according to the CDC. (
  • Limited testing of eye swabs suggested the causative agent was human adenovirus serotype 8. (
  • The examination will evaluate the eye for signs of trauma, look for systemic signs of an upper respiratory infection, and evaluate all the structures of the eye. (
  • Does this mean sinus/ respiratory infection. (
  • While Banerji says governments must address the underlying factors contributing to infant respiratory infections, the decision to provide the antibody as prevention is a good one. (
  • Does your child have signs of an eye infection, like pinkeye? (
  • The redeye/pinkeye infection takes a week to cure. (
  • Kids who get pinkeye often are required to stay home from school or daycare until the infection clears up to keep it from spreading. (
  • Your eye is oozing, swollen and red. (
  • An eye infection can become swollen as well as serious if not treated right away. (
  • To cure the infection, you need to control the acute and swollen area because minimal scars on the tissue can result to permanent loss of vision. (

  • Corneal ulcers are an offshoot of corneal infections. (
  • If it is the eye itself, I'll put a stain in the eye to look for scratches or ulcers. (
  • It is commonly caused by bacterial or viral infections but may also be due to irritants (chemicals, pollutants, or allergens). (
  • Eye infections spread through contact with an infected individual or contaminated surface, other illnesses (such as sinus or ear infection), or allergens or irritants in some cases. (
  • In that way, the chemicals can be the irritants, leading to some reaction in your eyes, such as eye infection. (
  • Many Americans Miss the Mark on Eye Diseases and Conditions. (
  • Duque said among the illnesses the public may acquire from swimming in the bay are diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, dysentery, eye infection and skin diseases. (
  • And that can be dangerous, for it will just cause many other eye diseases. (
  • Infectious eye diseases can be categorized in two ways. (
  • As part of the federal government's National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Eye Institute's mission is to "conduct and support research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight, and the special health problems and requirements of the blind.

  • To keep good health of the eye, have a nutritious diet and one that promotes good conditions rather than making it prone to eye infections. (
  • People wearing contact lenses are more prone to eye infections. (
  • According to NBC doctors here, it s some kind of minor infection which should resolve itself by the weekend, Costas added. (
  • This year instead of heartwarming stories of athletes overcoming life's obstacles, we'll have to put up with a few on Bob Costas himself overcoming the tragedy of an eye infection. (
  • Bob Costas during the NFL season, before his now infamous eye infection during the 2014 Sochi Games. (
  • They all ask a more important, pressing question: "What's up with Bob Costas ' eyes? (
  • Now it's Costas' eyes. (
  • It (the eye infection) was becoming increasingly noticeable and uncomfortable, but it was just that," Costas said in a statement. (
  • Of course there's always the chance that Lauer Wally Pipps Costas and Rapping Roberto walks into the Sochi sunset, a broken man, a guy betrayed by his own eyes. (
  • However, as Costas struggles with a very apparent eye infection during the Sochi Games, he's not quite the same presence in the studio. (
  • On Thursday, Costas welcomed viewers to NBC's opening night of Sochi coverage by drawing attention to his very, very red left eye . (
  • In fact, Costas looks quite a bit worse, with the infection now glaringly evident in both eyes. (
  • Check out the image (via @ stvnmacias ) for his current state, and look below for a comparison between Costas' healthy eye, his state on Thursday, and the utter terror of Monday's look. (
  • Despite the sorry state of Costas' eyes, chances are he's not in serious medical danger. (
  • However, it's worth considering whether continued problems for Costas and his eyes will eventually negate the positives of having him in studio. (
  • For the first time since 1998, NBC's Bob Costas won't be hosting the network's prime-time Olympics show, thanks to an eye infection most of us recognize from childhood. (
  • Home remedies are both safe and effective in treating eye infections. (
