Warts are essentially a type of viral infection that affects the skin. Warts can occur everywhere in the human body, including the face. Among the facial warts, eye warts have been found to be very common. All warts are caused by the HPV or the Human Papillomavirus. Actually, HPV doesn't refer to a single virus but more than 100 kinds of viruses that have been grouped together because of certain diagnostic similarities.

Warts have been classified into various categories. However, there are no uniform classifications for warts. While many physicians prefer to divide all types of warts into simple categories like flat and raised warts (appearance-defined categorization), some healthcare providers are inclined to define them as plantar or genital warts. Here, the classification is based on the location of the warts and not their appearance. Eye warts can be disconcerting apart from the appearance factor if they are located close to certain sections of the eye. People who have an eye wart close to the eyelids may find it very difficult to blink.

If eye warts were to be classified, they belong to the category of flat, facial warts. Flat warts refer to warts that don't have the typical brush-like appearance that is found some of the other facial warts. Such warts have a smoother appearance. Most of the eye warts belong to this category. Strangely, even after so many breakthroughs in the field of medicines, there are no comprehensive cures for treating warts. Most people either agree to live with warts or get them surgically removed. Some of the warts are also transmitted through sexual intercourse and are referred to as STD warts.

However, eye warts are largely believed to be non-communicable. Some of the warts have an overtly-infectious tendency wherein touching such warts and then touching an un-affected part of the body can cause a spurt in the spread of warts. However, some warts tend to remain docile and even after surgical removal, chances of such warts re-appearing are minimal. However, the infectious kind of warts tend to remain dormant for a long time in the body and may resurface, repeatedly even after surgical intervention.

Some Common Wart-removal Remedies

The most common surgical approaches used for removing warts involve the use of laser or electric current. Laser-based surgeries are becoming increasingly common and have been endorsed by many celebrities too, making them universally popular as a safe and effective way of getting rid of warts. On the other hand, electro-cauterization or wart removal by using electric current isn't very common.

Please understand that there is very little information about a complete curative process that has been effective for removing an eye wart. However, some home remedies or alternative treatments have become a bit popular since many people have opined that such treatments have at least helped to control the growth or spread of warts. It is commonly believed that if surgery doesn't have to be pursued, the wart should be destroyed or dried-up through an alternate approach.
