FluShields Makes Clear That Pink Eye is Not a Typical Symptom of a Corona Infection
The Corona infection is well known for targeting mostly the respiratory system of people making it harder to breathe and develop various respiratory complications. Thus, we didn’t know that besides mouth and nose attraction, this virus could also enter our bodies through an 'optical' passage - our eyes.
This is the reason why most health staff and government leaders encourage you to use eye protective gear such as face shields and eye goggles besides face masks to protect our eyes from any potential virus around us.
Why do we need to consider our eyes as one of the “gateways” for the virus to enter our systems? Basically, as we notice, eyes are a sensitive part of our body that doesn’t have external covering, unlike any other internal organs.
Due to that, besides arms and legs that we commonly use for movements, we couldn’t always close our eyes for obvious reasons. Because it is wide open for almost all the time, it is very sensitive and near to interacting with foreign objects making it easy to get infected by our hands or air.
Pink eye, or also called conjunctivitis, is defined as the inflammation of the conjunctiva (a transparent eye membrane) that leans eyes to turn a bit red from its normal white color. This infection may be a cause of irritation from harsh eye scratching, too much sneezing, or interaction with dust and dirt pollen.

Hence, should we be alert when this visibly occurs as a sign of Coronavirus infection? Do we consider this a mild or an extreme symptom of a person infected with it?
Apparently, yes! Like what we said before, symptoms may vary from one person to another depending on how they got the virus. Some people with pink eye symptoms may have scratched their eyes without knowing that they have interacted with someone or something infected by the virus making it enter its eyes freely. Yet, this virus is known for being part of the mild ones however, we should also be alert when this occurs for as we all know, eyes are a very sensitive part of our body that needs to be paid attention to. Besides this, once the virus has entered the eye, it may rapidly affect the whole other system with its infectious power that can be harmful to a person.
To avoid this type of symptom:
- Refrain or never touch your eyes if not necessary especially when you have held multiple numbers of people and objects around you.
- Always wash your hands as frequently as possible to keep it sanitized all the time.
- When holding things, use gloves or any hand protective equipment to protect your bare hands from any stray bacteria and viruses of the product.
- If a pink eye occurs, do not attempt to put several types of eye drops. Blink infected eyes for 10-15 seconds in running water to lessen the redness. If the eye remains its reddish color, immediately seek for medical assistance or family ophthalmologist.
- Lastly, be mindful of what you hold and who you go with. Wear a face shield or eye googles for protection.
