    • Overview

      Conjunctivitis (pink eye) is very commonly misunderstood by the general public and is an often misdiagnosed ocular condition by primary care practitioners. This diagnosis involves three distinct pathologies: allergic, bacterial, and viral conjunctivitis. Mis-diagnosis can result in chronic patient symptoms and discomfort. It is important that pharmacists are aware of the need for proper diagnosis and are comfortable with the most effective topical treatment for each type of conjunctivitis. Patient education and treatment counseling is key to success.
