Tears : Pink eye typically refers to viral conjunctivitis. It usually affects both eyes and because it is due to a virus, is treated symptomatically with otc preservative-free artificial tears. Problem is that this cannot be self- diagnosed. There are many causes of a red eye, some of which can be quite serious. You need to see an eye md for diagnosis and treatment.
