Pink Eye / Conjunctivitis

What is pink eye?

Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis) shows up in a variety of ways—all requiring specific treatments. Some forms of conjunctivitis are contagious, but many are not. Some of the infections associated with pink or red eyes are self-limiting and will heal from our own body’s immune system or with simple over-the-counter treatments.

There are many pink or red eye conditions that require more aggressive treatments to prevent vision loss if a sight threatening disease is imminent. Many different attributes present these pink or red eye conditions and it is important that an eye care professional be consulted to determine the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Ignoring the problem or taking a one-size-fits-all approach to care can lead to issues later on.

The right initial medication and mode of care can save patients a lot of time, pain, and money (not to mention an ER bill) with the proper diagnosis by a specialist trained in ocular health.
