About pink eye

Back to the top

Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is an irritation of the conjunctiva (the membrane that lines the inside surface of your eyelid). As small blood vessels become more irritated, they become more visible. This is why the whites of your eyes appear red or pink. Pink eye can be from an infectious cause -- like a bacterial or viral infection -- or not infectious -- like an allergic response, exposure to an irritant, or — in newborns — an incompletely opened tear duct. The infection may occur in one or both eyes.

Pink eye is extremely common and if caused by an infection, can spread quite easily. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are 3-6 million cases of pink eye every year. Although the infection may be irritating, it rarely causes vision problems. It is important to remember, however, that because pink eye is so contagious, it is best to receive treatment for it as soon as possible.

Treatment Options

The treatment for pink eye largely depends on the cause of the infection. The vast majority of cases of pink eye will go away with time and at-home treatment. In some cases, however, medicinal therapy may be required.

During your appointment, talk to your doctor about what treatment plan is right for you.
