What Causes Pink Eye?

Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is an extremely common eye infection that can affect kids and adults alike. There are a number of factors that can lead to pink eye, including:

  • The common cold, COVID-19, and other respiratory infections
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Exposure to bacteria
  • Seasonal allergies
  • A foreign object in the eye
  • Blocked tear ducts (in babies)

What Are the Symptoms of Pink Eye?

The symptoms of pink eye can vary in severity and duration based on the cause of the infection. Most people experience the following in one or both eyes:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • A gritty sensation
  • Frequent tearing
  • Discharge that can form a crust overnight

If you’re experiencing pink eye symptoms, it’s important to promptly seek medical treatment, avoid wearing contacts until the infection has cleared, and thoroughly clean pillowcases and eyeglasses. It’s also a good idea to wash makeup brushes and replace eyeliner and mascara.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
