How is conjunctivitis diagnosed?
To diagnose conjunctivitis, a doctor will examine the affected eyes. A diagnosis is usually made based on your symptoms. A doctor may also take a sample of fluid or pus from the affected eyes and send it to a laboratory for testing to work out the cause of the conjunctivitis.
