“Pink eye” is the colloquial term for an eye condition where the white parts of the eye become itchy, red and inflamed. It’s actually an infection of the clear layer that covers the white tissue inside your eye called the conjunctiva.
Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, isn’t usually a serious infection. Most kinds of pink eye will go away on their own after a few days. But if after this time period has passed you continue to experience issues, it may be time to arrange a visit to our Calgary eye centre.
