How to Know if You Have Pink Eye

One of the most common types of eye infections, pink eye develops when the transparent membrane that lines the eyelid and covers the white portion of the eyeball becomes infected or inflamed. This can produce the following symptoms:

  • Redness
  • Tearing
  • Itchiness
  • A gritty sensation
  • Eye discharge (you may notice a crust when waking up in the morning)

When to Seek Treatment for Pink Eye

Pink eye doesn’t always require medical attention. In many cases, you may be able to relieve pink eye symptoms by cleaning the eyelid with a wet cloth, applying a warm or cold compress, or using over-the-counter eye drops (artificial tears). However, you should be sure to reach out to a professional if:

  • Your symptoms persist longer than 12 to 24 hours
  • You’re experiencing eye pain, blurred vision, or sensitivity to light
  • It feels like something is stuck in your eye

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.
