Do I Have Pink Eye?

The best-known type of eye infection a.k.a. ophthalmia is conjunctivitis a.k.a. "pink eye". Pink eye can be caused by either a virus or bacteria and is known by different names depending on the type of infection and whether the eye infection is acute or chronic. All of these various eye infections cause symptoms such as itching, swelling of the eyelid and yellow discharge. A case of pink eye will often go away on its own but it is extremely contagious and, if it does not resolve itself quickly, can result in permanent eye damage. You can find some tips here at GrannyMed for cleaning and caring for infected eyes but please see a doctor if you have an eye infection because there is no reason to risk eye damage for something that can be easily cured.
