What is Bacterial Conjunctivitis? What is the treatment for Bacterial Conjunctivitis?

 

Bacterial conjunctivitis is a common infection for the conjunctiva (white part of the eye.) Typically the bacteria grow out of control causing eye discharge and irritation. Common bacteria that cause conjunctivitis are haemophilus influenzae, streptococcus pneumonia and staph aureus. The hallmark sign for bacterial conjunctivitis is discharge or matted eyelids when one wakes up in the morning. One will often experience eye irritation, discharge, red eyes, burning, itching, and tearing. Treatment is a topical antibiotic and artificial tears to irrigate the eye.
