Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is the inflammation or infection of the lining of the eyelid. Pink eye can happen sometimes due to bacterial or viral infection, or sometimes an allergic reaction. It can happen to babies under different circumstances. Because pink eye can be contagious, it’s best to notice and address it right away.
Symptoms of pink eye typically include:
– Redness in an eye or in both eyes
– A seemingly gritty feeling in an eye or the eyes
– An itchy eye or itchy eyes
– A teary eye or teary eyes
– Discharge that forms a crust in one or both eyes (typically forming at night)
Consider going to urgent care for treatment, especially if your symptoms are due to contact lens use. Urgent care is amazing, as they can treat you without the need for an appointment.
If your symptoms may be due to contact lens use or if you’re experiencing symptoms and wearing contacts, take the contacts out, and go to primary care for treatment if your symptoms don’t clear up within 12 to 24 hours, as primary care will be able to rule out any kind of serious issue. You may want to go to primary care regardless of what caused your symptoms, as pink eye can be quite contagious, so there’s a risk of spreading it and primary care can address the condition easily for you.
Typically, pink eye treatment is about symptom relief, possibly with artificial tears or with a cold or warm compress. You’ll need to avoid wearing contact lenses, if applicable, until you get better, and you may need to dispose of the lenses or disinfect them. You might also need to replace your lens case or, if applicable, your eye makeup. Sometimes antibiotic eye drops are the best treatment for pink eye, while other times (specifically, with viral infections) symptom relief is the only option for treatment.
It’s also possible to treat allergic conjunctivitis, and this may be when a prescription is necessary, like a prescription antihistamine or decongestant. No matter what caused your symptoms, you’ll find relief with us here at Smart Choice Medical Clinic.
