Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is a very common type of eye infection. Common symptoms include:
- A gritty sensation
- Discharge that may form a crust overnight
Pink eye is typically able to be treated at home with warm and cool compresses and over-the-counter eye drops. However, if you experience any of the following symptoms for longer than 12-24 hours, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible:
- Blurred vision
- Eye pain
- Feeling like there’s something stuck in your eye
- Sensitivity to light
Other Types of Eye Infections
Some other types of common eye infections include:
- Styes – A stye refers to a red, tender bump that appears on the edge of the eyelid.
- Fungal infections – Pink eye and styes are more common, but fungal infections occur particularly for contact lens wearers.
