Common Symptoms of Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

Pink eye (also known as conjunctivitis) is often caused by an infection and results in the swelling of the outside surface of the eye and eyelid. Some of the most common symptoms of pink eye include:

  • swelling of the affected eye(s)
  • itchy eyes
  • watery eyes
  • red and inflamed eyes

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to see a San Antonio eye doctor.

Pink Eye Treatment Options

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, pink eye treatment can be done at-home or may need to be addressed by an eye doctor in San Diego. If you wear contacts, be sure to remove them when you experience pink eye, as this will help speed up your body's own healing processes. Furthermore, you may be able to reduce irritation and swelling by using cold or warm compresses directly on the eye. This, in addition to regularly wiping the eyes from the inside (near the nose) out, can help you find relief from your symptoms.

If your symptoms don't subside within a couple days, treatment from our eye doctor in San Antonio may be recommended. Our San Antonio eye doctor can provide you with medicated eye drops to help you find relief, and antibiotics can also be used to prevent the spread of the virus within 24 hours after taken, so you can return to work or school.
