Our Kiki Muffin still has an eye infection (Conjunctivitis). He has also has a superficial ulcer (scratch) on his eye, which you can see because the vet stained his eye with green dye. He is being treated with antibiotic drops, immune system chews, and some pain/antiinflammatory meds. Hopefully this time around, Kiki will kick the infection. The scratch should also go away soon.
An outrageously bad case of brimonidine induced follicular conjunctivitis. The follicles are the little bumps on the underside of the lower lid, but this eye has so many they’re even on the white of the eye. Brimonidine - traditionally used for glaucoma management (as is the case here) is a relatively frequently encountered source of chronic follicular conjunctivitis in adults. The treatment is simply discontinuing the medication. I’m curious to see if it’s new cosmetic application (Lumify in the US) will induce this too. The percentage of brimonidine is so low in the drop I’ll hope not, but I suppose I’ll have to remember to ask if patients with follicular conjunctivitis are using it as it’s not a prescription drop. #eye#eyeinflammation#conjunctivitis#glaucoma#redeye#lumify#optometry#ophthalmology#optometrist#optometrystudent#soreeye#brimonidine

This is my life right now. I can't wait until tomorrow when I'm not contagious and am hopefully less drippy.
I need a huge cup of coffee today! Or maybe like 4... I had to be out of the house super early for 8:30am traffic court... in Queens!! So I headed there to fight a ticket I got almost 2 years ago. It was about 10 days before my wedding and I had pink eye. I was driving on the highway and pulled over because my eyes were tearing and I needed a moment. A cop came over to give me a ticket and I told him this. Not only did he not listen, he lied in his report and said I told him I was waiting 🙄🙄🙄. Anyway I had a doctor's note and got the ticket dismissed!! I have total respect for cops and think they're awesome that they put their lives on the line for us day in and day out but this is NOT the first time I came across a cop lying in their statement. I find it to be so frustrating but I am so so lucky that this judge was kind and gave me the benefit of the doubt instead of siding with the cop which I've seen happen.
Anyway, I'm off to volunteer at Bobbie's place! Check out my stories to hear more about what this awesome charity does!! #coffeeplease#slimmerwithsarah#trafficcourt#notguilty#truthbomb#realmom#realmomlife#momlife#rollwiththepunches#healthcoach#momof3#conjunctivitis#volunteer#charity#dogoodthings#giveback#workfromanywhere#timefreedom

Conjunctivitis selfie 🙌🙌🙌 I am in fact feeling like crap. But it’s one of my teaching days so I’m dragging my sorry ass into work and because my eyes are so infected I am having to go make up free 🙈 I have not gone make up free to work EVER, which makes me think it’s probably about time. So I’m channelling all the #bodypositive stuff I wrote about in #jemimasmall and reminding myself that I am a good person even if my eyes are red and swollen and kind of gunky. And if anyone is going to judge me then bring it on 💪 by the way I am not teaching Judo although that’s what my white shirt looks like from this angle. #makeupfree#conjunctivitis#teachersofinstagram#jemimasmallversustheuniverse#bodypositivity#nomakeup#authorsofinstagram
MUCOUS MEMBRANE PEMPHIGOID
This is a patient who presented with an inability to open his right eye was investigated for mucous membrane pemphigoid and treated. Examination was notable for symblepharon of the right eye (pictures 2-5) and impetigo-like lesions on the face and neck (picture 6). A biopsy with immunohistochemical analysis was significant for linear deposits of C3 (picture 7) and immunoglobulin G (picture 8) at the level of the epithelial basement membrane, confirming the diagnosis of mucous membrane pemphigoid. Although mucous membrane pemphigoid classically presents bilaterally in women in the sixth and seventh decades of life, our patient was a young man with unilateral cicatrizing conjunctivitis who may have been easily misdiagnosed without a high index of suspicion. A biopsy is required in cases of cicatrising conjunctivitis so that even atypical cases such as the one presented herein can be appropriately managed.
👉 According to an article published in the "Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research", applying neem leaf tea juice 🍃 to patients’ eyes every night is an effective treatment to cure both night blindness and conjunctivitis. 👁 Check out www.Neempedia.com for more information on how neem can be used as a natural cure! 🌿
Pink Eye has been going around school for a while now, but it finally caught my oldest.
So we've been bringing out the oils to help speed healing along. Along with an eye wash we have been rolling on Lavender Touch, Tea Tree Touch and then adding Douglas Fir on top.
Do not add oils to the eyes ever! We simply roll these around the eye sockets.
And of course practice good hygiene. Washing hands is the easiest way to keep it from spreading!
What about you? What do you do for Pink Eye?

// Conjunctival papillomas are categorized into infectious (viral), squamous cell, limbal, and inverted (histological description) based on appearance, location, patient's age, propensity to recur after excision, and histopathology. They demonstrate an exophytic growth pattern. Interestingly, inverted papillomas exhibit exophytic and endophytic growth patterns.
Conjunctival papilloma also can be classified based on gross clinical appearance, as either pedunculated or sessile. The pedunculated type is synonymous with infectious conjunctival papilloma and squamous cell papilloma. The limbal conjunctival papilloma often is referred to as noninfectious conjunctival papilloma because it is believed that limbal papillomas arise from UV radiation exposure. Because of its gross appearance, limbal papillomas are typed as sessile. Although rare, inverted conjunctival papillomas sometimes are referred to as mucoepidermoid papillomas because these lesions possess both a mucous component and an epidermoid component. #conjunctiva#conjunctivitis#papiloma # #eyedoctor#eyeexam#optometry#optometrist#ophthalmic#ophthalmology#ophthalmologist#genes#uvradiation#tumor#eyetreatment#histopathology#uvexposure#pathology#medicalschool#eyedisease#eyemed#eyeinfection#clinical#viralinfection#virus

35 year old female soft contact lens wearer with asthma presents with a left swollen eyelid ( 📸 left eyelid flipped) and conjunctival injection, chemosis, and foreign body sensation for 3 days. —————-
Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (AKA large irritated bumps on the inside of your eyelid) can happen with soft contact lens wear. 👁
It can happen at anytime (even years after contact lens wear). Sometime it can even happen in non contact lens wearers as a reaction to stitches or artificial eyes. ——
Causes: - allergy to contact lens or solution
- patients w asthma/allergies are more prone
- redness, irritation, foreign body sensation, tearing, blurry vision, heavy eyelids
- contact lens holiday (temporarily stop wearing) until eye professional eval
- allow time for eyelid to heal
- eye ointment/drops recommended by eye professional *antihistamines *mast cell stabilizers: cromylyn or loxodimide
*topical steroids can be used acutely but careful monitoring for side effects w chronic use (ocular hypertension or cataract formation or flare of keratitis)
*topical cyclosporine or tacrolimus can be used for long term management *consider retrial/refitting of contact lens, change type
*consider changing contact lens solution to a preservative-free type ——-
Prognosis: - with appropriate and timely care
- management of instigating cause - most mild cases resolve ~ 5-7 days #contactlens#conjunctivitis#ophthalmology#eyecare
‘Tis the season for red and green...but what about pink? As in PINK EYE 😳
Cold and flu season is upon us and cases of viral conjunctivitis, commonly called “pink eye” always increase this time of year.
Classic pink eye is viral, meaning that antibiotic eye drops DO NOT cure it! Say what? Yep — just like the common cold, viral conjunctivitis should not be treated primarily with antibiotic eye drops. Inappropriate antibiotic use contributes to antibiotic resistance and makes real bacterial disease more difficult to treat.
What you should know about conjunctivitis:
🦠The most common cause is adenovirus, which can also cause cold and GI symptoms.
😓 Patients often have a preceding cold, virus, or URI symptoms
⚡️Irritation, scratchiness, or dry sensation typically begins in one eye
💦 Eyes become more irritated, red, and have significant tearing and drainage that may be thick and crusty upon waking
👀 Symptoms usually develop in the other eye within a few days
📅 Most cases resolve within about a week, but severe cases (epidemic keratoconjunctivitis or EKC) can last up to two weeks
💊Treatment is supportive with frequent artificial tears, cool compresses, and in some situations topical steroid eye drops. Some ophthalmologists use topical povidone-iodine which may have some benefit but burns like heck!
🧼MOST IMPORTANT: frequent hand washing and disinfecting surfaces!! Adenovirus is extremely contagious
🙅🏻♀️Avoid contact with others as much as possible until symptoms are resolved. This means staying home from work, school, daycare, etc. Again, since this is a VIRAL illness, antibiotic drops do not stop its spread.
🤓Dispose of old contacts and eye makeup. Use new products when symptoms have resolved.
Eyes that have extremely purulent discharge (lots of pus) or vision changes should be seen by an ophthalmologist.
This information is purely educational in nature and not intended to diagnose or treat any illness. Consult your ophthalmologist if you have symptoms of conjunctivitis.
Conjunctivitis- also known as pink eye is inflammation of the thin clear covering of the white of the eye and the inside of the eyelids. There are several primary causes such as viral, bacterial and allergens. Viral conjunctivitis is caused by a virus similar to the common cold. This type of pink eye is highly contagious but will typically clear up on its own without medical treatment. Bacterial Conjunctivitis is caused by bacteria and can cause serious damage if left untreated. Allergic conjunctivitis can be caused by eye irritants such as pollen, dust and animal dander. Allergic conjunctivitis can also be seasonal or flare up year- round . Some common symptoms depend on the type of conjunctivitis. Viral conjunctivitis include watery, itchy eyes and sensitivity to light. Sometimes both eyes can be affected. Again, viral conjunctivitis is highly contagious and can be spread through coughing and sneezing. Bacterial conjunctivitis includes sticky yellow- green eye discharge. In some cases the discharge can be so severe that the eyelids will stick together. BC is very contagious and can be transmitted by direct contact with infected hands or items that have touched the eye. Allergic conjunctivitis include watery, burning,
itchy eyes and often accompanied by stuffiness and a runny nose. AC affects both eyes and is not contagious. The only type of conjunctivitis that needs medical attention is bacterial conjunctivitis. Your eye doctor typically will prescribe antibiotic drops or ointments.
5 Pink Eye Prevention Tips:
Pink Eye Treatment
Treating your pink eye usually depends on the type of conjunctivitis you have.
If your conjunctivitis is caused by a viral infection, there are no specific treatments. Your body fights the virus on its own. Placing a cool, wet washcloth on your eyes can help make them feel more comfortable.
If your pink eye is caused by a bacterial infection, your ophthalmologist may prescribe antibiotic eye drops, depending on how severe your symptoms are. Antibiotics do not treat an infection caused by a virus or by an allergy.
If your conjunctivitis is due to allergies, you might be told to use certain eye drops to help with the itchiness and puffiness.
Sometimes conjunctivitis can be caused by a chemical or other substance in your eye. In this case, rinse the eye free of the substance. You might be told to use certain eye drops or ointment for the eyes. #pinkeye#Conjunctivitis#treatment#aaoorg#Rutnineyehospital#55yearsRutnin

*watches Halloween wars once*
Ended up actually carving a big pumpkin this year instead of just painting on a little one (had to put paint on there too tho) and ofc made it very much 👁on brand👁. ((For anyone confused I carved the socket into the big pumpkin separately and then put a smaller pumpkin inside it for the eyeball so that’s why it can go like 👀)) (((also the pinkeye goop is painted pumpkin guts btw)))
👁 This can be a very common ailment amongst children. Pink Eye (conjunctivitis) can be extremely contagious so if immediate precautions are not taken, parents and other siblings may easily contract the infection. If you are a natural/holistic parent and would like to use CS for pink eye, simply drop One (1) droplet into the infected eye 2-3 times per day. We use Sovereign Silver 10ppm.
Colloidal Silver has antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal & anti-inflammatory properties, it can help heal wounds and cuts, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis & may be used for infections caused by yeast or bacteria & even the common cold/flu! Colloidal silver can be applied directly to the skin for acne, burns, eye infections, fungal infections, throat infections, skin infections, and Staphylococcus infections, it can also be taken orally daily for preventive maintenance. The benefits are endless! 👀
My poooooor baby woke up like this the other day. I was concerned because her left eye was almost completely swollen shut, but as the day progressed the swelling went down. Her eyelids were very pink since Sunday night, but the symptom to indicate bacterial pink eye was the purulent discharge coming from her eye or gross pus that was coming out sticking her lashes together!! The doctor was not concerned about cellulitis because the swelling went down after a few hours of waking up. Pink eye is an inflammation of the lining of the eye giving it a pink- red appearance. It is highly contagious but also very easy to treat. It can usually be treated with antibiotic eye drops but oral antibiotics may be needed if the infection persists. Warning: it is nearly impossible to get eye drops in a 2 year old without a serious struggle 😜 #iheartautopsy#mysterydiagnosis#pinkeye#pathology#daycare#school#contagious#conjunctivitis#bacteria#microbiology#pus
This stunning male house finch with the sunset back came to us with a mild case of finch eye disease, a form of conjunctivitis caused by the bacteria Mycoplasma. In the more severe cases, their eyes can be swollen shut and crusted over, and they can show signs of upper respiratory infection. Usually the disease is more rampant in winter, when multiple finches share feeders. If you notice any birds with eye infections frequenting your bird feeder, it’s best to disinfect the feeder to prevent widespread contagion. #housefinch#fincheyedisease#mycoplasma#conjunctivitis#wildliferehab
