CONJUNCTIVITIS

Conjunctivitis is a very common condition, sometimes referred to as “pink eye”.

Symptoms

The clear membrane over the white of your eye (conjunctiva) becomes inflamed, which can make your eye watery and feel itchy. Your eye may also become swollen, red, and produce watery or sticky discharge.

Causes

Some forms of conjunctivitis are caused by passing germs such as bacteria or viruses. This is called infective conjunctivitis, and it’s very contagious. Allergic conjunctivitis, on the other hand, is caused by allergic reactions to dust mites, pollen, or other irritating substances — and isn't contagious.

ACUVUE® Solutions

Conjunctivitis usually clears up within a matter of days to a week or two without treatment, but in some cases antibiotic eye drops or anti-allergy (antihistamine) medications will be needed. Please consult your optician if you think might have conjunctivitis.
