The doctor’s examination will be focused on identifying the cause of your pink eye. For this, questions about your medical history, your symptoms, whether your disorder has been recurring or whether it is caused by certain allergens in the environment will be asked to help make an initial diagnosis.
Following this, a detailed eye exam will be carried out by the ophthalmologist. Your eye examination will include the following:
A visual acuity test to check your eye sight
Examination of the conjunctivitis and external eye tissues with the help of magnifying tools
Special eye tests to examine the inner structures of the eye
Other than the eye test, your doctor may also request a test of the discharge from your eyes to make a more accurate diagnosis about the cause of conjunctivitis.
The team of ophthalmologists at The Aga Khan University Hospital are specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders, such as conjunctivitis. You can be assured of receiving multidisciplinary healthcare under one roof from the staff at the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Service Line of the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi.
