Eye Infection Diagnosis

Though pink eye infection is an irritating condition, it rarely affects vision. However, if pink eye infection is suspected, contact your health care provider as soon as possible because it is contagious. This is especially important for children because they are more susceptible to viruses and bacteria.

If you have an infant or very young child exhibiting symptoms of pink eye infection, and a blocked tear duct is suspected, your health care provider may closely monitor the situation to see if the tear duct opens on its own, or you may be referred to an eye specialist (ophthalmologist) for further evaluation and treatment.
