Same-Day Treatment for Pink Eye in Somers, NY

You’ve woken up to find that one of your eyes is noticeably red and itchy. What can you do? A better option than wearing sunglasses all day and simply hoping for the best is to visit a reputable immediate care center like PhysicianOne Urgent Care. An affiliate of Yale New Haven Health, our Somers, New York, location is open 365 days per year and offers same-day treatment for pink eye (conjunctivitis)—a very common eye infection that can result from factors like upper respiratory infections, allergies, foreign objects in the eye, and exposure to bacteria. Walk-in patients are always welcome, and we offer convenient online appointment scheduling for patients who prefer to plan ahead.

What Are the Symptoms of Pink Eye?

Pink eye can cause the following symptoms to occur in one or both eyes:

  • Redness
  • A gritty sensation
  • Itchiness
  • Excess tear production
  • Discharge that can accumulate and form a crust overnight

It’s always a good idea to seek urgent care if you develop symptoms of pink eye. You should also wash your pillowcases, replace any eye makeup products, and thoroughly clean eyeglasses, in addition to avoiding contact lenses until you receive treatment and the infection has cleared.

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

Patient
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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
