Prevention of Pink Eye
There are a few steps individuals can take to prevent conjunctivitis. Pregnant women with STDs should inform their obstetrician. Those prone to allergies would do well to avoid the pathogens that cause the allergic reactions. To prevent bacterial infection do not share eye make-up and replace it frequently. Change pillowcases regularly. Do not use someone else’s handkerchiefs or towels. Wash hands regularly and try not to rub or touch the eyes. Be sure to keep contact lenses clean and handle them carefully.
