Pink eye

FORT LEE, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christopher Marshall is treating pink eye at Family Health Clinic.

His biggest warning is that it is highly contagious!  If someone close to you has pink eye wash your hands frequently.

When clearing discharge from your eyes, wipe from nose to ear only to avoid clogging tear duct drainage near your nose.

See a doctor immediately as this is highly contagious and other, more serious conditions that can endanger your vision can mimic simple pink eye.
