Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is the swelling and redness of the conjunctiva; the mucous membrane lining of the eyelid and eyeball. It is a common condition that is not considered dangerous, but it can be highly contagious and extremely uncomfortable. The causes of pink eye are inflammation and infection.
There are four main cases of pink eye; viral or bacterial infections, dry eye caused by lack of tears or exposure to elements, allergies, and chemicals, fumes, or smoke.
Viral and bacterial infection cause the highly contagious form of pink eye, usually associated with children. As there are no true medical treatments, pink eye will usually vanish in 7-10 days, though, the uncomfortable condition can leave many looking for soothing relief.
Pink eye drops are formulated to provide moisture and relief from itchy, painful, irritated eyes. However, pink eye drops do not help cease the spread of the condition; this can only be done with frequent and proper hand washing, ceasing the sharing of towels, make-up, or contact lens equipment, and simply not touching your eyes no matter how uncomfortable they are.
Similasan Pink Eye Relief Drops are a great product for easing symptoms of pink eye, but are only effective for viral cases. Not only are these drops effective, they are formulated with all-natural ingredients and are homeopathic. Additionally, these eye drops are great for use on anyone 2-years old and up, making them a great all-around treatment for anyone in the family. However, if the whole family has pink eye, everyone will need their own bottle, as another prevention technique is to not share eye medications.
As mentioned before, pink eye drops are only useful for viral cases of the infection. Bacterial cases are characterized by large amounts of eye drainage. The only treatment for bacterial pink eye cases is a round of antibiotics. Since cases of pink eye must be diagnosed by a doctor, make sure to ask during the appointment which type you have and what treatment is best.
Pink eye is painful and can spread quickly. Fortunately, there are techniques and specially formulated drops to help most patients get through the healing process.
