Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye)


Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin, transparent layer of tissue that covers the white part of the eye and lines the inner surface of the eyelids. This condition can be caused by viruses, bacteria, allergens, or irritants, and it is characterized by symptoms such as redness, itching, irritation, discharge, and watering of the eyes.

Our experienced team of ophthalmologists and eye care professionals at Shree Ram Hospital is equipped to diagnose and manage all types of conjunctivitis, ensuring prompt and effective treatment to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications. We utilize advanced diagnostic techniques, including slit-lamp examination and laboratory testing, to accurately identify the underlying cause of conjunctivitis and tailor treatment accordingly.

The treatment approach for conjunctivitis depends on the cause of the inflammation. For viral conjunctivitis, which is the most common form and often associated with cold-like symptoms, treatment typically involves supportive care measures such as cold compresses, artificial tears, and antihistamine eye drops to relieve symptoms and soothe the eyes. Antibiotic eye drops or ointments may be prescribed for bacterial conjunctivitis to eliminate the infection and prevent its spread to others.

In cases of allergic conjunctivitis, triggered by allergens such as pollen, dust, or pet dander, treatment may include allergy medications, antihistamine eye drops, and avoidance of known triggers to reduce symptoms and prevent recurrence. Additionally, for irritant-induced conjunctivitis, identifying and avoiding the irritant is essential to prevent further inflammation and discomfort.

At Shree Ram Hospital, we emphasize patient education and empowerment, providing valuable information and resources to help individuals understand their condition, manage symptoms effectively, and prevent complications. Our compassionate and patient-centered approach ensures that each patient receives personalized care and support throughout their treatment journey.
