Conjunctivitis

What is Conjunctivitis "Pink Eye"?


Pink eye is the inflammation of the transparent membrane that lines the eyelid and the white part of your eyeball; the irritated small blood vessels are what cause the “pink eye” appearance. Conjunctivitis is often contagious, so early diagnosis is recommended.


What Causes Conjunctivitis?

The main cause of conjunctivitis is a bacterial or viral infection, or an allergic reaction.


What Are The Symptoms of Conjunctivitis?

  • Redness and itchiness in one eye or both

  • A discharge or crust around the eye

  • Noticeable tearing

  • Swelling of the eye

Think you are suffering from Conjunctivitis?

Pink eye can be diagnosed fairly easily as the red inflamed eye is distinct, then your healthcare provider can give you treatment.

  • Don't touch/rub your eyes with your hands

  • Wash your hands often

  • Don't share hygiene or personal care supplies
