Yes, you can get chlamydia infection in your eye from infected partner. It is one type of STD and responsible for genital & eye disease. Check your test result for confirmation.

Use eye drop and take proper antibiotic (doxycycline and azithromycin) to eliminate the infection. If trachoma is diagnosed, then SAFE strategy is required after consultation with ophthalmologist.

Hope, it helps. Practice safe sex in future. Good luck.
