Hilary Duff Claims She Got an Eye Infection from COVID-19 Tests

Hilary Duff recently went to the emergency room for a very surprising reason.

Monday on Instagram Story, the “Younger” actress posted a slew of family pictures from the holiday break.

In one slide, the “Come Clean” singer said her “eye started to look weird” and began to “hurt… a lot.”

While revealing that she had to go to the ER, the 33-year-old claimed she “got an eye infection from all the COVID tests at work.”

“Cuz you know, 2020 and all,” she added.

Fortunately, the “Lizzie McGuire” alum said her “eye is fine” and that she just needed probiotics.

As “E! News” pointed out, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not reported eye infections to be a common side effect of COVID-19 testing.

Back in November, Duff said on IG Story that she was “exposed to COVID” and was forced to quarantine. However, she did not reveal where she was exposed to the virus.

At the time, “E! News” reported that the former Disney Channel star was filming the upcoming seventh season of “Younger.”

The news channel added that she and co-star Sutton Foster were photographed on set without wearing masks. It is, however, unclear if the two actresses were filming at the time the supposed photo was taken.

Duff, who is currently expecting her third child, shares son Luca Cruz Comrie, 8, with ex-husband Mike Comrie, and daughter Banks Violet Bair, 2, with husband Matthew Koma.
