  • Many symptoms

    VKC has many symptoms. These include sensitivity to light, itching, tearing, or discharge from the eye. It may also cause dots on the white of the eye or bumps underneath the eyelid.

  • Not contagious

    VKC is different from pink eye (conjunctivitis). VKC is often mistaken for pink eye because it has many of the same symptoms such as redness, itching, and mucous discharge. Unlike some forms of pink eye, VKC is never contagious.

    VKC usually begins before children are 10 years old, and often goes away during adolescence. It can continue into adulthood in rare cases.
