The Educated Patient: Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)

This website provides an extensive overview of conjuctivitis: signs, symptoms, causes, and treatment.

This site will be helpful for parents from the time they observe the first symptom of conjunctivitis in their child until treatment has been completed. A detailed list of information to relay to the child’s physician — when the symptoms began, if they came on suddenly or gradually, and if the child has experienced symptoms in addition to eye problems — will help parents provide a complete explanation and ensure that their child receives the proper treatment. The site explains the four different types of conjunctivitis and discusses the underlying conditions that conjunctivitis may be a symptom of. Prevention is also discussed in detail.
