What is pink eye?
Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, occurs when the lining that covers the eyeball and the inside of the eyelid (conjunctiva) becomes inflamed or infected. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including bacterial or viral infections, allergies, or a foreign object in the eye.
What does pink eye treatment involve?
Each patient’s ideal course of pink eye treatment will vary on the condition’s cause. In cases of viral infections – pink eye’s most common cause – treatment will focus on relieving symptoms while the virus runs its course. A physician may recommend using artificial tears and cleaning the eye area to prevent the spread of infection, along with taking a break from wearing contacts and eye makeup. Hot and cold compresses may also be used around the eye to provide relief from itchiness.
