What causes pinkeye?
Pinkeye is most often caused by a virus or bacteria. It usually occurs at the same time as or right after you have had a cold. Less commonly, pinkeye can be caused by infection with bacteria.
Dry air, allergies, smoke, and chemicals can also cause pinkeye.
Symptoms of pinkeye include:
- Redness, Itchy or burning eyes.
- More tears than usual. The eye may drain a clear or slightly thick, whitish liquid.
- Gray or yellow drainage from the eye. Waking up with the eyelashes of one or both eyes stuck together from this dried drainage is a common symptom of pinkeye.
- Mild sensitivity to light (photophobia).
- FDA approved ophthalmic drops
- If you are experiencing vision loss, or have been exposed to chlamydia, gonorrhea, or a chemical splash, please see an ophthalmologist immediately.
- We also don’t treat contact lens wearers.
