Shoud I get tested
      #159064 - 08/24/05 09:50 PM

I had a routine eye exam two weeks ago. The doctor use a handheld device to measure my eye pressure. I didn't see him disinfect that instrument before put it on my eye ball. As far as I know, HIV virus does exist in tears and on eye linings. I checked the website of related regulation organization. It was recommended that those instrument be disinfected before using on patient. Now, I have a fever and sore throat. I am really freaking out. In theory, HIV could be transmitted through eye.

Should I get a test?

No a chance for HIV contraction.
