Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)
What is Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)?
Pink eye can be infectious or a result of allergies and/or irritation.
If there is an infection, it generally starts in one eye and easily spreads to the other eye. Red, irritated eyes result that go away in three days to a week. If the symptoms last longer than that you should see your eye doctor. This is important because if the infection enters the cornea (the transparent surface of the eyeball) little cloudy areas can develop that may harm your vision.
