Eye Infection

The conjunctiva is a very thin, transparent membrane that covers the outer surface of your eye as well as the inner surface of your eyelid. Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of this layer caused by a bacterial or viral infection or an allergic reaction to an irritant.

It is commonly referred to as “pinkeye” because the white of your eye (sclera), appears pink and blood shot as a result of the dilation of the arteries in response to the inflammation. If the cause is due to a viral or bacterial infection then one should be very careful not to touch the infected eye and then touch the eye that is not infected as the bacteria/viruses are spread by contact.

Allergic conjunctivitis is usually much itchier than infectious conjunctivitis and it commonly occurs with swelling of the eyelid. Applying a cold patch over the eye usually helps reduce swelling and itching.

In both form of conjunctivitis there is usually increased tear production. The watering in infectious conjunctivitis is often accompanied by a discharge that is thick and contains pus. This discharge often causes the lids to stick together after closing ones eyes for a long period of time. Please note that our recommended treatment should be taken in conjunction with and not in place of any treatment recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Please consult your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms persist for longer than four days.
