Pink Eye Treatment Near Me
Pink eye (or conjunctivitis) is a form of inflammation of the membrane that covers the white part of the eye and eyelid area. The pink or red coloring of the eye comes from the tiny blood vessels on the white area that are more visible when irritated. Pink eye is caused by certain bacterias, allergic reactions, and viral infections.
Pink eye can be highly contagious when left untreated and is usually spread through contact. In a populated area like New York City, it is important that our patients have access to care so that they can reduce the spread of conjunctivitis.
Symptoms of pink eye:
Pink eye symptoms can vary between people, but there are a few common symptoms that most individuals experience, including:
- Redness in one or both eyes
- Itchiness in one or both eyes
- Watering eyes
- Discharge that may cause crustiness
- Feeling of grittiness in one or both eyes
There are a handful of different kinds of pink eye, including allergic conjunctivitis, bacterial conjunctivitis, and viral conjunctivitis. Symptoms between all three may overlap and should be taken seriously. Urgent Care doctors can put a coloring agent in the eye, called a fluorescein stain and look at the eye under a special light to eliminate serious eye diseases. Please visit the CDC website for more in-depth information about conjunctivitis symptoms.
