Also known as conjunctivitis, pink eye is the inflammation or infection of the transparent membrane covering our eyes. It causes a pinkish reddish color due to the inflammation of red blood cells in the transparent membrane or conjunctiva.
Bacterial or viral infection, allergies, chemical splash, blocked tear duct, or foreign bodies in the eye are common causes of pink eye. The most common symptoms are:
- Redness in one or both eyes
- Itchiness in one or both eyes
- A gritty feeling in one or both eyes
- A discharge that forms a crust preventing your eye from opening in the morning
Pink eye is contagious, so early intervention is very important.

Our goal is to help reduce the worsening of acute illnesses over time due to inadequate medical attention.
Wellness & sick visits here at our clinic can guarantee that your pink eye will be cured in no time. Should you experience any of the symptoms above, we encourage you to visit our clinic immediately.
If not treated immediately, pink eye can result in severe complications. Pink eyes can inflame your cornea, which can affect vision.
