Healing From Pink Eye at Our Mount Dora, FL, Apartments
Pink eye, also called conjunctivitis, is an inflammation or infection of the membrane that coats the eyelid and covers the white part of the eyeball. It is commonly caused by a bacterial or viral infection, and can also be caused by an allergic reaction. It’s often easy to tell if someone has pink eye because it presents with noticeable symptoms, like redness or itchiness in one or both eyes and tearing. While it doesn’t affect vision, it can be a highly contagious condition, so it’s important to start the healing process as soon as possible.
When healing from pink eye, here are some important things to remember:
• Make an appointment with a doctor as soon as possible, so he or she can diagnose the pink eye and prescribe eye drops and/or eye ointment
• Those who wear contact lenses regularly should stop wearing them until the pink eye has cleared
• If the eye or eyes are feeling irritated, a cool or warm compress can be used to relieve the swelling and redness
• It is a curable condition with the healing period lasting anywhere from three to 10 days
