Pink eye is a minor illness that packs a big punch! When your eyes are in pain and not functioning correctly, it can be a tall order to try and fight through it and carry on with your daily schedule. In such situations, the most productive thing to do is to see a doctor as soon as possible to get the infection or allergic reaction under control so that you can return to whatever the day has for you.
They sure can! Whether you need a diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, or prescription for pink eye, the medical professionals at a walk-in clinic can do an admirable job. At Boca Medical Care in Boca Raton, our board-certified physicians can provide you with quick and effective pink eye treatment!
In many cases, pink eye can be effectively treated the same way as a common cold with over-the-counter medication or eye drops. However, if your case of pink eye is severe enough or caused by a bacterial infection, you may require prescription medication. The type of medication that your doctor will prescribe is dependent on the kind of pink eye you have. The three pink eye types are viral conjunctivitis, which is the most common, bacterial conjunctivitis, and allergic conjunctivitis. With viral conjunctivitis, your doctor would prescribe antiviral medication. For bacterial conjunctivitis, antibiotics are the standard treatment for fighting the infection. Finally, for allergic conjunctivitis, your doctor would likely prescribe allergy medication or eye drops. When you come to Boca Medical Care in Boca Raton, Florida, our board-certified physicians can identify the type of pink eye that is ailing you, assess its severity, and provide you with either the prescription or over-the-counter medicine you need!
An urgent care clinic is a great place to go for pink eye treatment! Since urgent care clinics do not require prior appointments to be made before coming to see the doctor, you will not have to call ahead and wait for the next available appointment a day or two down the line, and neither will you have to spend hours in the waiting room before seeing a doctor, as you would at the emergency room. Instead, all you need to do is walk in, and you will be seen by one of our physicians within approximately 30 minutes!
The symptoms of pink eye, or conjunctivitis, are numerous, and they vary according to the specific type of pink eye that you are afflicted with, whether viral, bacterial, or allergic. The following is a list of the most common symptoms associated with the pink eye:
• Begins in one eye and spreads to the other, if viral conjunctivitis
• Blurred vision
• Burning or itchy eyes
• Crusting around eyelids and eyelashes that is especially worse in the morning
• Increased tear production and sensitivity to light
• Intense urge to rub your eye, feeling as though there is a foreign body in your eye
• The pink or red color in the whites of the eyes or inner eyelid
• Thick or watery discharge (if bacterial, thick and white, yellow, or green, and causing eyelids to stick together; if viral, watery and clear)
• Swollen lymph nodes, if it is viral conjunctivitis
