CONJUNTICIVITIS Or Pink Eye New Alternate Treatments

Conjuntivitis or Pink Eye- Types Causes and  Associated Treatments

Conjunctivitis or pink eye can be caused by a viral infection, a bacterial infection, or an allergic reaction. Contact wearers are prone.

Viral Conjunctivitis is the most common overall cause of Infectious Conjunctivitis .

The signs, symptoms and presentation are variable. Treatments are used to reduce individual symptoms.

Second Most Common
Conjunctivitis bacterial

Bacterial Conjunctivitis is the second most common cause of infectious conjunctivitis, with most uncomplicated cases resolving in 1 to 2 weeks.

Symptoms Include:

  • Discharge causing adherence of the eyelids on waking,
  • lack of itching, and
  • absence of a history of Conjunctivitis, is the strongest factor associated with Bacterial Conjunctivitis.

Conjunctivitis secondary to sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhea requires systemic treatment – in addition to topical antibiotic therapy. These infections can be passed from partner to partner, with the male partner often not having symptoms at all.

Male partners should be treated whether they have symptoms or not.

Allergic Conjunctivitis
Allergic Conjunctivitis is encountered in up to 40% of the population,

  • Itching is the most consistent sign of Allergic Conjunctivitis
  • OcuSolve is a potent mast cell stabilizer that alleviates the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis.
  • Contact lens wearers are well covered by OcuSolve’s potent antimicrobial properties and are able to avoid antibiotics.


What are the  symptoms of conjunctivitis?

Conjunctivitis is inflammation or infection of the Conjunctiva and is characterized by dilatation of the conjunctival vessels – ie. Hyperemia and Oedema (swelling) of the conjunctiva. The Conjunctiva is a thin, translucent membrane lining the front (anterior) part of the eye (sclera) and inside of the eyelids.


What are the treatment options for pink eye?

What are the treatment options for pink eye and how long does it typically take to resolve?

You can use OcuSolve™ to help alleviate all forms of Conjunctivitis – Superior inflammation and infection control.

OcuSolve™ Eye Wash has several mechanisms of action:

  • Ocusolve is a soothing anti-inflammatory (and anti-itch) treatment taking care of redness.
  • Gives long-lasting antimicrobial cover.
  • OcuSolve™ combats biofilms. A biofilm is a colony of microbes that exude sticky material which forms a matrix or grid.
  • It’s estimated that almost 70% of all infections that require treatment are due to biofilm formation. This film forms in order to protect the microbes’ colony
  • Ocusolve’s REGEN BIO-HOCI molecule penetrates and disrupts the biofilm and microbial cell membranes.
  • OcuSolve™ is thus able to create a challenging environment for invasive pathogenic Conjunctivitis.
  • Ocusolve’s REGEN BIO-HOCI is an Oxygen rich solution. Each Oxygen species has a distinct mode of action and capability:
  • which is a potent antimicrobial capable of eradicating antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria, viruses, and fungus.
  • without promoting the emergence of newly resistant strains of infection

Several studies have shown that BIO-HOCl (in OcuSolve) has a broader and more potent antimicrobial spectrum than any conventional prescribed treatment.
