    In general, otitis will not affect eye function except that the result of such infection is either intracranial disease or severe pathological changes of ears. We usually use chloramphenicol eye drops to deal with the eye infection.So we can not deny the relationship between them. Although there are two possible situations leading to the goopy eyes, either a blocked tear duct or a pink eye, both of which may be the viral infection. As for the cause of goopy eyes, as mentioned above,it is most likely result from the ear infection in the same period. However, under such circumstances, it is wise to see the doctor in specialized hospital,especially when other uncomfortable symptoms such as discomfort, eye redness or eyelid swelling occur.They can detect the possible causes of your condition and know how to care your eyes.

    Yes, ear infection will affect your eyes and let your eyes get goopy eyes because of the interlinked nerves in the whole body. You need to pay great attention to it. You should use some eye drops to moisture the eyes and clear the eyes. You need to have the good rest for both eyes and ears. In addition, the suitable amount of food with vitamin C will make your eyes get comfortable.
