Most Common Types Of Conjuctivitis You Must Know About!

Most Common Types Of Conjuctivitis You Must Know About!

An inflammation resulting in the formation of a thin layer inside the eyelids or the white part of the eyeball is known as pink eye or conjunctivitis. This condition turns the eye ball into pinkish color, hence the name. Based on the severity of the infection, either one or both eyes get affected.

What are the common symptoms?

  1. Medium to heavy swelling of the eye
  2. Eye crusting after sleep
  3. A burning sensation
  4. Irritation, itching or blurred vision
  5. Redness and increased sensitivity of the eye

Different kinds of conjunctivitis:

  1. Allergic ConjunctivitisThis is the type of conjunctivitis that results from eye irritants such as animal dander, dust particles and pollen. This is not infectious in nature. Treatment prescribed by ophthalmologist includes eye drops and non-steroidal medications. It is advised to keep the eye moist till it gets cured.
  2. Viral Conjunctivitis: As the name suggests, this kind of conjunctivitis is caused due to a viral attack. Sadly though, antibiotics don’t work and there is no particular medication for this type of conjunctivitis. Like common cold, viral conjunctivitis runs its course in a span of 1-2 weeks. Since virus is contagious, it is necessary to ensure that the microbes don’t spread. Some common prevention measures are listed below:
    • Eye cosmetics should be abandoned till the conjunctivitis is cured
    • Hands should be frequently cleaned
    • Hand and eyes should not be in contact
    • Frequent change of pillow covers, towels and clothes
    • Swimming should be completely avoided
    • Spectacles in place of lens should be used until advised otherwise by a medical practitioner
  3. Bacterial Conjunctivitis: This kind of conjunctivitis is caused by the streptococcal bacteria and has potential to cause real damage if proper medication is not taken on time. This is highly contagious. Prescription often includes antibiotic drop and ointments. The medication is prescribed for 2-3 weeks depending on the level of bacterial spread in the eye. It is very essential to complete the full course of medication to avoid recurrence. Prevention measures as stated above should be strictly followed.
  4. Chemical conjunctivitis: Eye irritants such as chlorine cause this conjunctivitis. Frequent swimmers often get affected by this type of eye infection. Topical steroids are prescribed to cure this kind of infection. Immediate medical attention is required to avoid lasting injury to the eye.

How to prevent pink eye?
While prevention is the best way to refrain from conjunctivitis, some basic hygiene checks are very important. Here is a list of must do’s:

  1. Do not share personal items such as combs, towels and toiletries.
  2. Stay away from a conjunctivitis infected patient
  3. Using of goggles while swimming
  4. Frequent usage of hand sanitizer and hand wash

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

A preliminary eye check up is a must to rule out a spectacle power or any other eye problem. That is the first step, after which the other check ups (to rule out migraine etc) will follow.

My eye day by day weak please asked me how control this issue and please asked me tips. I am before wears optical.
Myopic power is inherited from either mother or father side & is basically hereditary in nature ,maximum increase in myopic power takes place between 13 to 21 yrs in male & between 13 yrs to 19 yrs in female because maximum body growth takes place between these periods. There is no direct medicine to check the increase in myopic power but with the help of balanced diet ,green vegetables & seasonal fruits  one can slow the speed in the increase of myopic  power,one can take the help of yoga pranayam, swimming, gym &these things definitely slow the speed of increase in myopic power.

Is it safe to use contact lenses? or any problems will occur if I use contact lenses? then, please tell me what are the possibilities of side effects of contact lenses.

If you use contact lenses from a good brand there will be lesser chances of problems. The following points have to be followed while using contact lenses: 1. Dust must not fall in your eyes when you are using lenses. 2. You must not wear them 24 hrs no matter what anyone claims. It is advisable to use them for maximum 10 hours continuously 3. Better to use monthly disposable lenses 4. Cleaning the lenses daily with a good solution is a must.

Don’t rub your eyes. That’s likely to make symptoms worse. Try cool compresses instead. Wear sunglasses when outdoors to help shield the eyes from allergens. Consult eye specialist.

Hello colour blindness is usually from birth. If it is acquired during life time then it is suggestive of optic nerve disease. Kindly consult local opthalmologist and get proper eye check up done.

I have dry eye problem especially when sitting in front of computers in my job. Trying my best to take breaks between work and using eye drops. Is there anything else I can do, any food I should eat more or any medicine. Please advice as I am just 32 with entire Job life ahead.

You can try superior quality lubricant eye drops during day time and lubricant gel drops or ointment at bedtime. Omega 3 fatty acids taken orally are said to benefit some people by improving the corneal health. Moist chamber goggles could help as well. Temporary or permanent punctal plugs, implanted into lower eye lid puncta are shown to benefit some, by retaining natural tears for longer duration within the eyes. To evaluate if you need these things at all and to know the grade of dry eye condition (usually done by Schirmer strip test), you better get examined by an ophthalmologist.

My daughter is 8 year old and good at studies and quite bright child. The problem is with her EQ. She usually has her opinion on everything and will make sure that it is been followed. She does not follow what we say at once usually. Sometimes in front of others, when she does something which we have told her not to do, it causes stress and anger in us. She wants us to give her complete attention all the time, which can not happen all the time. (incase of guests etc) during such times she demands for the tv. Which if I do not give. She starts irritating me. And after that she get the avoiding she gets into denial mode. So whatever is been told to do she will say no for it. How should I handle it?

Dear lybrate-user, it must be tough dealing with such a child. Give her instructions of what to do and what no to do very gently at a time when she is absolutely calm and receptive. Make her do more physical activities, like dancing, or aerobics or yoga or outdoor sports. This might take away some of her restlessness and regulate her body and mind. Also remember, one should be firm with children. Hope my suggestion helps you.

Hello, my eyes look yellowish. I've consulted a doctor. Checked the LFT. It shows high bilirubin count. The doctor said there is nothing to worry. But I'm really worried. Is there any cure. What is your diagnosis of my condition?

The term used for yellow eyes is icterus. It correlates with your bilirubin count. I would recommend you to take an expert opinion for the same with a gastroenterologist. Liver conditions may at times be associated with yellowing of the sclera of the eye which lead to the yellow coloration. There may be no direct treatment for the eye but systemic treatment (if indicated) and restoration of normal bilirubin levels may help in normalizing your eye color as well. Take care.
