I have pain and/or redness in my eyes.
If you have pain, redness or discharge from your eyes and wear contacts, you need to remove them. Contact lens wearers should always have a pair of glasses available in case they need to not wear their contacts for a few days. Redness, discharge and discomfort in your eye can be symptoms of conjunctivitis or "pink eye". Conjunctivitis is highly cantagious and can be spread easily from person to person. If you have these symptoms you should avoid touching your eyes and if you do, wash your hands immediately. Conjunctivis can be caused by allergies, bacterial or viral infections and even chemicals.If you have any of these symptoms, please call Student Health Services to be evaluated. Any time someone has eye PAIN, they should get checked as soon as possible.
