What are the symptoms of pink eye and how do we treat it?

Unfortunately, pink eye can occur in patients of all ages. During an exam, we review your symptoms and provide a treatment plan to eliminate your symptoms. Signs of pink eye may include:

  • Weepy eyes
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Yellow discharge
  • Light sensitivity
  • Itchiness
  • Crusty eyelids or lashes in the morning
  • Foreign body sensation in the eye

Sometimes, the eye may swell shut because of excess drainage. Your pink eye treatment options depend on the underlying reason for why it is occurring. Treatments may include antihistamines, antibiotic eye drops, and cold or warm compresses. During this time, patients should avoid wearing contacts. If you have disposable lenses, please throw away the pair that you wore when you first started exhibiting symptoms. Additionally, we recommend replacing any eye makeup you used before your pink eye. Both of these action items will prevent the infection from coming back after you have healed.
