Conjunctivitis Symptoms

Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is a very common type of eye infection. Common symptoms include:

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

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.

No matter what type of eye infection you’re experiencing, you can count on the expert team at PhysicianOne Urgent Care to take great care of you.

"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."
