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

"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."
