What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?
Symptoms of conjunctivitis can include:
discharge from the eyes
painful, itchy eyes
red, puffy eyes
sensitivity to light
Symptoms vary, depending on the cause. For instance, a colored discharge from the eye usually indicates a bacterial infection. But, when itching and tearing are the main symptoms, allergies are the most likely cause. With viral conjunctivitis, there is usually no discharge, but there may be redness and tearing.
