Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

To determine whether you have pink eye, your doctor will examine your eyes. Your doctor may also take a sample of eye secretions from your conjunctiva for laboratory analysis if you have a very severe case of conjunctivitis, if your corneas are affected or if you've had repeated infections that aren't responding to treatment.
