I remember as a kid getting it in 1 eye & then a week later, the
other eye. It's either viral or bacterial. Just like a cold or
flu virus to the eye. If it's bacterial, you usually have an
e of these) w/ it. It's transmitted person
quickly. Rub your infected eye, shake someon
they rub their eye, they get it. It starts in the inner lining
of eye & can really go after the white of eye. Dr. needs to
determine viral vs bacterial.
