Im on levaquin today is my 3rd day. I have been to my Dr. He did urine test and gave me the antibodies. If I have clamydia and touched my gential area with maybe contact to discharge then adjust my right eye contact coul I have transferred it to my eye? Now my eye is red and sort of hurts. This has occurred within 24 hrs. Advise
Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Customer: Yes Dr.
Doctor DanB : While this is not very likely, it is technically possible to transfer Chlamydia to your eye in this manner.
Customer: Ok, i
Customer: I thought it was wierd
Customer: But I saw it on the net. If I did have discharge on my finger it was not wet
Doctor DanB : Do you have any other questions about this?
Customer: I have a swollen penis head and forskin with some blood in urine
Customer: It hurts bad when I urinate. Really bad. I went to the er and they said uti?
Doctor DanB : Unfortunately I'm not the specialist to have an informed opinion about whether you have a genital Chlamydia infection though.
Customer: Then whent to my pop and he did urine sample and gave me Levaquin. 3days in as of today with little relief?
Customer: Pcp
Doctor DanB : Yes, I think you should be seen by both your PCP and eye doctor if the eye worsens.
Customer: So what should I do with my eye go to my p c p or eye dr
Customer: ok would it react that quick if it was clyamdia
Doctor DanB : I would see the eye doctor for your eye and your PCP for the urinary infection.
Doctor DanB : Usually not, but stranger things can happen.
Customer: It burned when I touched my eye would that happen?
Customer: Well caused a discomfort
Doctor DanB : It certainly could, yes.
Customer: Last ? Well levaquin cue me if I do have a uti or clymi
Customer: Cure
Customer: Clymidia
Doctor DanB : It likely would, yes, but not always.
Customer: K

Will the Levaquin cure my eye if that is what it is?
It's possible, but it may require topical antibiotics
