Viral Eye Infection Contageousness
I was diagnosed with a severe viral eye infection June 2 and the doctor has told me I am 70% healed. I am still under treatment. Am I still contageous? How will I know when I am no longer contageous?
There are several different types of viral eye infections. Thus this question is best answered by your eye doctor who knows the specifics of your case.
