Pink Eye Treatment

Is your eye red and itchy? Does it feel gritty? Is it tearing up and producing a crusty discharge? If so, you might have conjunctivitis (also known as “pink eye”), a condition that occurs when the membrane lining the eyelid and covering the white portion of the eyeball becomes inflamed or infected.

Fortunately, if you are in Glendale, CA, you can turn to Vituity Family Medicine Center for pink eye treatment. We are a 100% doctor-owned and -led practice, and pleased to serve patients in the Glendale community.

What Causes Pink Eye?

Pink eye is most commonly caused by viral infections (for example, the common cold). Other potential causes of pink eye include:
  • Allergies
  • Bacterial infections
  • Foreign objects
  • Irritants (for example, contact lenses, dirt, and smoke)
  • Tear duct blockages (in infants)

It is important to note that when pink eye is caused by bacteria or a virus, the infection is highly contagious. So, to be safe, you should dispose of any used eye makeup, wash your towels and pillowcases, and avoid touching your eyes. And if you wear contact lenses, you should throw away any used disposable contacts and disinfect any reusable ones.
