Pink Eye Symptoms

Pink eye, an irritation or inflammation of the white part of the eyeball, is a common type of eye infection caused by bacteria or a virus. It’s extremely contagious and it spreads through contact with eye secretions from someone who is infected. Therefore, if you’re experiencing pink eye symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment right away. Common symptoms include:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Tearing
  • A gritty sensation
  • Discharge that may form a crust overnight

Eye Infection Treatment

For immediate relief, clean your eyelid with a wet cloth using a warm or cold compress, or use over-the-counter eyedrops. Fortunately, many people with pink eye don’t require professional care. However, if your symptoms last longer than 12 to 24 hours or you experience the following symptoms, you should reach out to PhysicianOne Urgent Care as soon as possible:

  • Blurred vision
  • Eye pain
  • Feeling like there’s something stuck in your eye
  • Sensitivity to light
