Understanding the Symptoms of Pink Eye

While pink eye is not the only condition that might require eye infection treatment, it is one of the most common types. Pink eye (conjunctivitis) occurs when viruses, bacteria, allergies, or a foreign object causes inflammation to the inside of the eyelids and the membrane that lines the white of the eyes. It can be present in either one or both eyes, with symptoms to look out for including:

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Frequent tearing
  • A gritty sensation
  • Discharge (which may harden and form a crust overnight)

When Should You Seek Eye Infection Treatment?

Some cases of eye infections—including pink eye—can clear up on their own, but this is not always the case. When in doubt, it is always best to see a reputable medical provider if you develop signs of pink eye or another eye infection, especially if your symptoms are severe.

"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."
