In brief: Pink eye

Most common is a pink eye with mucous and eyelashes sticking together especially on awakening.
The eyelids can swell and there can be a slight blur in vision but should not be dramatic change. Can also be associated with an upper respiratory infection.

In brief: Eye exam

Conjunctivitis is either allergic or infectious and is diagnosed by a combination of symptoms of itching, burning, redness, weeping along with physical findings of dilated blood vessels, mucous membrane inflammatory patterns, and discharge pattern.
Sometimes there is swollen lymph node in front of the ear. Pink eye typically refers to viral conjunctivitis and exhibits exaggerated symptoms.
