Customer Question

my son has been diagnosed with viral conjunctivitis
JA: OK. The Opthamologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Opthamologist can help you best.
Customer: It has been over 12 days that he has had it, but what's strange is what seems to be sever pain around his eyes
JA: Keeping an eye on your eyes' health is important - for most people vision is their most valued sense. Our Expert will help you with which sort of vision doctor you should visit. Is there anything else the Opthamologist should be aware of?
Customer: I am just wondering why wouldn't the pain go away, maybe it's not viral conjunctivitis?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Opthamologist about your situation and then connect you two.

This needs evaluation by an ophthalmologist
