Conjunctivitis is a common eye condition commonly known as pink eye. Symptoms of conjunctivitis include eye redness, crusting of eyelids, and watery eyes among other eye conditions. There are several types of conjunctivitis including bacterial, viral, and allergic. Some types of conjunctivitis may be contagious. Office visits for conjunctivitis are considered medical office visits and are different from your comprehensive eye exam. Medical office visits can often be billed under your general medical insurance.

They are able to prescribe appropriate medication which may include antibiotic eye drops, anti-allergy drops, or other necessary medications.
