Pink Eye: Pink eye is a problem. It is only a term that says the eyes are reddish pink. Usually due to a mild viral infection, the eyes may become "reddish pink" in other severe conditions, like uveitis, acute glaucoma as well. Therefore, a diagnosis by an ophthalmologist is essential. Assuming that it is pink eye, just warm moist compresses may suffice. Diagnosing is the most challenging part.
