    Dear friend, don’t worry. Not all infections will spread to our brain. Many eye infections will not spread to brain. I heard that only orbital cellulitis can spread to the brain. I think the first thing you need to know is that which kind of eye infection you have got. So I suggest you to go to your local pharmacy. They can tell you which kind of eye infection you may get and give you eye drops for infections.

    Orbital cellulitis is a kind of eye infection which can spread to the brain and further lead to blindness. The infection can spread to spinal cord or blood clots too. This infection can result in a serious disorder that is called cavernous sinus thrombosis. You can have your eyes examined by your doctor immediately to prevent the spread.
