Sending pic of eyes. Its my right eye, I dont know if you can see it or not. If its conjunctivitis, what do I do??
Eye Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

this could be due to a viral conjunctivitis infection of the eye

or allergies which can cause swelling of the eyes.

allergies would be treated by allergy pills and antihistamine or steroid eye drops

conjunctivitis would be treated by antibiotic eye drops.
