Pinkeye: All You Need to Know

Pinkeye, or Conjunctivitis, is a very common eye disease, especially for youth. Outbreaks of Pinkeye often happen at elementary schools.

Causes

Conjunctivitis occurs when there is an inflammation of infection of the transparent membrane(conjunctiva) that lines your eyelid and covers the white part of your eye. When small blood vessels in the conjunctiva become inflamed, the white of your eye becomes reddish pink.

Commonly caused by viruses, bacteria, allergies, chemical exposure, foreign objects, or a blocked tear duct in newborns.
