  • Bleeding under the conjunctiva
  • Blood stained discharge

  • Touching one’s eye

Best practices:

  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after touching the eyes.
  • Avoid touching areas like hand rails of escalators, door handles in public places, class rooms and public transport systems as far as possible.
  • Avoid sharing common house hold items.

Treatment:
