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. Therefore, a diagnosis by an ophthalmologist is essential. The most challenging part in medicine and surgery is making the diagnosis.
