home remedies for pink eye

Hi I'm dr. Richard cone from the cone eye center in Maitland Florida and today we're going to talk about pink eye or conjunctivitis pink eye is inflammation of the clear membrane that

covers the white of the eye the symptoms include redness itching grittiness tearing and

discharge there are three main types there's viral there's allergic and there is bacterial those

are the three types that we see most commonly in the office viral conjunctivitis is by far the
most common and is typically caused by the adenovirus which is the same virus that causes

the common cold like a common cold there is no specific treatment for viral pinkeye which

usually goes away on its own in three to five days or certainly within two weeks the most

important thing with viral pinkeye is that this is a highly contagious and spreads very
commonly in families in schools and daycare centers and nursing homes it's very important to

 practice good contagion precautions with frequent hand-washing if you have viral pinkeye it's

very important that you're careful if you touch your eyes to go ahead and wash your hands

before you touch things because viral pinkeye is spread on contact if you rub your eyes and

you touch your computer keyboard and someone later uses that keyboard and touches their
eyes that's how conjunctivitis is typically spread around artificial tears and using cool

compresses will help the symptoms but generally viral pinkeye has to go away on its own

bacterial pinkeye is different from viral in that there's usually a large significant discharge of

pus from the eyes that will look yellow or green while the family medical doctor typically
treats this with antibiotic drops I usually recommend that patients see their ophthalmologist

as they're more likely to get an appropriate antibiotic that is more current and treats a wider

range of bacterial allergic pinkeye is typically caused by things that you're allergic to in the

community be it pollen or animal dander or dust benadryl works well for this condition but
one must be careful that benadryl and other oral antihistamines can cause fatigue prescription

eye drops like padded eye and Ellis dad that worked very well to help reduce itching and

burning but these need to be prescribed by your ophthalmologist eyedrops that quote get the

read out don't work very well for this condition as they can irritate the cornea some allergic

reactions are seen to antibiotics like neomycin and one must be careful to avoid those if you
have an allergy to these medications lastly it is important that contact lens wearers should not

just assume they have pinkeye if their I becomes read contact lens where is a much more

prone to get bad infections in the cornea and should be seen by an ophthalmologist that by an

ophthalmologist if their eyes become red the most important thing about pinkeye is that you

should not have significant pain or reduced vision with pinkeye if these occur it's very

important to see your ophthalmologist right away speaking about pinkeye I'm dr. Richard cone. Next Top 6 Natural Exercise to Improve Eyesight
