(Source: CDC) Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is one of the most common and treatable eye conditions in the world. It can affect both children and adults. It is an inflammation of the thin, clear tissue that lines the inside of the eyelid (conjunctiva) and the white part of the eyeball. This inflammation makes blood vessels more visible and gives the eye a pink or reddish color.
Pink Eye Symptoms - The symptoms may vary, but usually include:
-Redness or swelling of the white of the eye or inside the eyelids
-Increased amount of tears
-Eye discharge which may be clear, yellow, white, or green
-Itchy, irritated, and/or burning eyes

-Crusting of the eyelids or lashes
-Contact lenses that feel uncomfortable and/or do not stay in place on the eye
