Pink eye, or conjunctivitis as it is known as clinically, is the inflammation of the part of your eye called the conjunctiva, the think and clear part inside the white of your eyes. At Yeager Vision Care, we are your specialists when it comes to diagnosing and treating pink eye.
The causes of pink eye can be viral or bacterial, or may simply be due to irritants such as dirt, dust, pollen, shampoo, or even pool chlorine. Contact lens wearers can also have a higher risk for developing pink eye. This condition does not pose a serious danger to either your eye health or your long term vision, but is easily transmitted from person to person. It is important to avoid contact with contaminated individuals, and to be sure that you avoid contact with others if you have pink eye. You might need our Greenville eye treatments if you exhibit one or more of the following symptoms: burning or itchiness in your eyes, increased production of tears, redness in the white of the eye or the inner eyelid, blurred vision, or an unusual sensitivity to light. Discharge, which can be either green, white, or yellow may also be present. Yellow discharge in particular could form a crust over your eyes, which is often noticeable upon waking. Our Greenville eye treatments depend on the nature of what caused the problem. For example, antibiotics are used for bacterial infections. Allergy medication for allergic reactions, and flushing the eye if contaminants are responsible are also common treatments. If pink eye can be traced back to a virus, it will have to be waited out. There is no effective treatment for it.
