Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is a kind of inflammation or infection on the transparent membrane (conjunctiva) that covers the white part of your eyeball and lines your eyelid. Since the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva are inflamed, they're more visible. Then your eyes appear to be pink or reddish. Its early symptoms include:
  • Eye redness
  • Tearing eyes
  • Itching eyes
  • A little gritty feeling in eyes
  • A discharge in eyes which will prevent your eyes from opening
  • Sensitivity to bright light
  • Swelling of the conjunctiva
  • Contact lenses cannot stay in place in the eye
