Everything You Need To Know About Pink Eye

Everything You Need To Know About Pink Eye

Chances are you or someone you know has dealt with an irritating, common eye condition known as pink eye or conjunctivitis. If you have never had any first-hand experience with the side effects of pink eye, it is when your eye becomes infected and can be caused by a virus, bacteria, or an allergy. Pink eye gets its name because when you become infected your eyes become irritated and turn pink and swollen as a result.

Some other symptoms of pink eye include but are not limited to:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Redness of eyelid
  • Discharge
  • Gritty feeling
  • Itchiness
  • Puffy eyes
  • Swollen lining of eyes
  • Watery eyes

If you experience one or more of these symptoms it is important to schedule an appointment for a diagnosis which will allow you to get proper treatment. This is important because pink eye is a very contagious condition that can easily be passed from person to person.

You can become infected with pink eye as a result of a viral or bacterial infection as well as an allergy. The most common cause of pink eye is a virus. People get pink eye as a result of a virus from things like the common cold, flu, respiratory infection and many others. Another way you can become infected with pink eye is from an allergic reaction, this can come from pollen, dust, contact lenses, cosmetics, and many other things. It is important to understand the signs and symptoms of this eye condition so that you can understand your treatment options and prevent spreading.

"I am writing this less than 24 hours after the procedure, and I'm thrilled with the results. I was very nervous, as I am about any medical procedure, but the staff and doctors could not have made the experience better. It was painless, fast and everyone made me comfortable. And the results are amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
