Recovery & Support For Conjunctivitis

Viral or bacterial conjunctivitis often requires little follow-up care because it is easily treated. Chemical conjunctivitis may require more care to ensure proper healing, and NYU Langone ophthalmologists can monitor the eyes until the condition has gone away.

Your doctor can offer tips on how to prevent a recurrence of conjunctivitis and transmission to others, including frequent hand washing, refraining from touching your eyes, and not sharing items like towels, pillowcases, and eye cosmetics.

In rare cases in which chemical conjunctivitis has caused vision problems, specialists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation can prescribe therapies to help you maintain or improve your ability to perform daily activities, such as reading, writing, and traveling.
