At first, maybe you thought the mild itching in your eye was just related to your allergies or lack of sleep. Over the course of the day, however, the itching has intensified — you can barely keep your fingers away from your eyes as the need to rub them is almost overwhelming.
Then, you look in the mirror — the whites of your eyes are turning pink. Around the edges, you have discharge and crusty material. The itching just won’t stop, and in fact, is getting worse. Now you’re tearing up and your eyes are mildly swollen.
