Pink eye, which is an inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, is a commonly treated condition at our medical center in Maui, Hawaii. At Urgent Care West Maui, our medical professionals will first begin treatment by asking about your recent medical history and symptoms. They will then conduct a full examination, looking for particular symptoms of the condition, including redness, itchiness, discharge, and/or tearing in the eyes.
