Patient: I woke up this morning with my left eye glued shut with discharge and since cleaning, the white part has remained pink. I have suffered with severe hayfever for many years but never experienced discharge like this before. So my question is….could these symptoms be my havfever? Or is it most likely an infection, or both?
Symptoms: Pink eye, discharge only late at night/early morning. Itchy/irritave eyes
Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query, picture and proper history.Hey fever should have affected both the eyes simultaneously.Hence this looks to be infection of the affected eye.Instead of self-treatment, it is always better to get this checked by an ophthalmologist and get the most proper treatment.
