Know Your Pink Eye Facts

Pink eye conjunctivitis eyeworks

Not all Pink Eye is the Same.

I came across a very informative All About Vision article about pink eye today that I’d like to share with you. The medical term for pink eye is conjunctivitis.  This common eye condition can have more than one cause including bacteria, virus, allergy or foreign object irritation.  Treatments vary depending on the cause.  We recommend you don’t use Visine-type products as mentioned in a previous post.

Here at Vision Source , we can usually see you right away if you start to experience irritated eyes and we’ll even call in the prescription for you if you wish.

So here is the pink eye article which includes a nice handy summary courtesy of the same website that you can print out if you are a school nurse, teacher or parent.

Pass this on to your parent and teacher friends and loved ones.  If you haven’t already, subscribe to my blog and follow us also by clicking here to Become a Facebook fan!!
