Pink Eye

Our office in Rio Grande Valley is enrolling participants ages 18 years and older with Pink Eye for a clinical trial.

How Do You Know It’s Pink Eye?

The most common pink eye symptoms include:

    • Redness in one or both eyes
    • Itchiness or discomfort in one or both eyes and possibly a gritty feeling
    • Discharge from one or both eyes that may form a crust while sleeping.
    • Excessive Tearing

What is Pink Eye?

Conjunctivitis (Pink eye ) is an infection or inflammation of the transparent membrane that lines your eye. When small blood vessels in the membrane become inflamed, they’re more visible and create a red or pink appearance to the eye.

Pink eye is commonly caused by a bacterial or viral infection or by an allergic reaction.

 

Pink Eye can be very irritating, but it rarely affects your ability to see. Treatments can help ease eye pain or discomfort. Pink Eye can be contagious, so early diagnosis and treatment help prevent other people from getting Pink Eye.
