Can the conjunctivitis adversely affect the pressure in my eye?
DEC 17, 2013
Generally an upper respiratory tract infection associated with a viral conjunctivitis does not affect the eye pressure. In some circumstances, if the eye becomes extremely congested, the eye pressure could increase a small amount, but this would not be typical. If you have concerns about the nature of your eye, it is important to see your ophthalmologist for a full evaluation.
