Can conjunctivitis be treated?
Viral conjunctivitis usually gets better without treatment.
Bacterial conjunctivitis will often get better without treatment within a couple of weeks, but it can also be treated with antibiotics.
Allergic conjunctivitis can be treated with anti-allergy medications.
In the vast majority of cases, conjunctivitis is a mild condition which poses no threat to the eye or your vision, but you should not wear contact lenses until the symptoms have completely gone.
Seek urgent medical/optical attention if the symptoms are persistent or get worse.
