  1. Hello. Yes. Usually it is conjunctivitis. If caused by a virus it will resolve by itself within a few days. If bacterial it will require antibiotic drops. Redness when accompanied with pain, loss of vision or heavy green or yellowish discharge can be the indication of a more serious underlying problem and requires consultation. Thank you for your question.
