Pink Eye

Sports announcer Bob Costas' eyes became news while he was covering the Olympics.  He contracted such a severe case of "pink eye" that he was forced to take time off from work.  Pink eye is a sometimes contagious inflection of the white part of the eye and/or the eyelids.  It can be bacterial, allergic or viral. It can also come from contact lenses.  Pink eye must be treated early to avoid spreading.  I treat many cases of pink eye.  Please come in at the earliest symptoms such as eye redness or eyelids that feel like they are sealed shut in the morning.
