Pink Eye Treatment Offered Near You in Chicago, IL

Picture of a woman taking off her glasses and touching her eye in pain because she needs pink eye treatment.Is your eye red and itchy? Does it feel gritty? Is it tearing up and producing a crusty discharge? If so, you might have conjunctivitis (also known as “pink eye”), a condition that occurs when the membrane lining the eyelid and covering the white portion of the eyeball becomes inflamed or infected.

Fortunately, if you are in Chicago, Illinois, you can turn to Jovive Health for pink eye treatment. We are a 100% doctor-owned and -led practice, and pleased to serve patients in the South Loop community.

What Causes Pink Eye?

Pink eye is most commonly caused by viral infections (for example, the common cold). Other potential causes of pink eye include:

  • Allergies
  • Bacterial infections
  • Foreign objects
  • Irritants (for example, contact lenses, dirt, and smoke)
  • Tear duct blockages (in infants)

It is important to note that when pink eye is caused by bacteria or a virus, the infection is highly contagious. So, to be safe, you should dispose of any used eye makeup, wash your towels and pillowcases, and avoid touching your eyes. And if you wear contact lenses, you should throw away any used disposable contacts and disinfect any reusable ones.

Pink Eye Care Available Seven Days a Week

When you’re experiencing pink eye symptoms, you want relief fast. But what if your infection develops on the weekend? Do you need to wait until the following week to consult with a medical provider? Not when you entrust your care to Jovive Health. We offer pink eye treatment seven days a week at our clinic in the South Loop neighborhood of Chicago, IL. Book a same-day reservation or walk in when it is convenient for you.
