Here are some of the most common questions that our nurses and physicians hear about pink eye:
What causes pink eye? Is it very contagious?
Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, can be caused by viruses, bacteria, allergens in the environment, or irritants that can infect the eyes. It is a highly infectious infection, which is why children can contract it easily at school.
What are some of the symptoms of pink eye?
Pink eye symptoms can include itchy/watery eyes, redness and swelling, crusting of the eyelids, or discharge.
How can I treat pink eye?
Pink eye usually goes away by itself, but not in all situations. If your symptoms are getting worse after a few days, it is important to see a doctor near you as soon as possible. A doctor can prescribe medication depending on if your conjunctivitis is viral or bacterial. It is recommended to take out contact lenses as well.
While pink eye can be annoying and painful, it is a fairly common infection in individuals of all ages and usually goes away by itself.
