Pink eye is an inflammation or infection of the thin, clear covering of the white of your eyeball (the conjunctiva) and the inside of your eyelids. When the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva become inflamed they are more visible making the whites of your eye to appear pink. Also called conjunctivitis, it can affect one or both eyes.

Common symptoms of pink eye include:
Redness in the white of the eyeball(s) and or inner eye lid(s)
Increased tearing or discharge
Slightly blurred vision from discharge
Crusting of the eyelashes from the discharge that may prevent eyes from opening after sleep
Mild eyelid swelling
Itching or burning sensation
Increased sensitivity to light
Irritation or gritty feeling in your eye(s)

Four general types of pink e...

They say that eyes are the first thing you notice about a person's face. But if that's true, we wouldn't have been so surprised by the peepers below.

Strangely enough, we've never noticed how different and beautiful some of Hollywood's eyes can be. In fact, we've learned that several stars from the worlds of film, television and sports have a condition known as heterochromia iridis, which affects the coloration of their irises. Some cases are far more pronounced than others, but all are somewhat rare — and frankly, kind of cool.

Mila Kunis revealed that she developed her mismatched eyes while struggling with chronic iris inflammation, which also left her with cataracts and poor vision. "I was blind in one eye for many years, and nobody knew," she said. Kunis eventually had a new lens surgically implanted to correct her sight.

Josh Henderson

When asked about his "fantastic eyes" actor Josh Henderson admitted that they were always a topic of discussion. "It's kind of like a give and take," he added, revealing that he's almost blind in his left eye without contacts.

Alice Eve
"Star Trek Into Darkness" actress Alice Eve was appearing on "Conan" when the host pointed out her heterochromia, and Eve claimed that an ex-boyfriend failed to notice her mismatched eyes for nine months. "He was like, 'Do you have different colored eyes?' and I was like, 'Are you joking? What have you been looking at, nine months in?'"

Kate Bosworth usually wears contacts to hide her heterochromia on film. But when she took the role of Lois Lane in 2006's "Superman Returns," director Bryan Singer told her not to bother. "[He] wanted to keep them the way they are

Different eye colors are more common in different parts of the world. For example in Sweden blue eyes are the most common while in China brown eyes are more common. Ireland has a relatively large percentage of green eyes. Eye color percentages and statistics can also change with time. Colors that were most common 100 years ago might be less common now.

Blue Eyes, Blue Sky
Blue eyes do not actually contain any blue pigment, rather, they appear blue for the same reason as the sky: light entering the eye is scattered through the iris, and perceived as blue because blue is the shortest wavelength of visible light, and therefore, more of it is reflected back out. So technically, the eyes themselves are not blue at all! The same applies for green, amber, hazel, and every shade in between – these are all caused by varying degrees of melanin, both in the back of the eye of the iris and the front of it, as well the structure of the collagen: finer collagen reflects more light, causing eyes to appear bluer, while coarser collagen reflects less, giving us green eyes. In people with albinism, there is no melanin whatsoever in the eye, and as such they appear red: not because they’re reflecting red light, but because we can see the blood in the eyes! This total lack of melanin also makes albino eyes highly susceptible to UV, making sunglasses a necessity outdoors.

Brown
Brown eyes are by far the most common worldwide, and in many areas of the world, such as East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, it’s rare to find any other colour. That’s because brown is a “dominant” gene, and so any child of both brown and non-brown eyed parents is much more likely (though not certain!) to have brown eyes too. There is no confirmed advantage of having brown eyes but research has indicated that they may be slightly better at absorbing bright light and blocking UV rays.


Changing Colours
Even if you’re born with blue, gray or green eyes, there’s no guarantee you’ll keep them throughout your life. The melanin-producing cells in your eyes may only start to become active after a few months or years, and in rare cases, even longer. When this happens, brown pigment will start to be created, leading to darker eyes.

Two Eyes, Two Colours
Heterochromia is a rare medical condition in which the two eyes are different colours. This condition is more prevalent among cats than humans, and usually consists of one blue eye and one of a darker color. Many celebrities have two eyes colors look at Kate Bosworth or Mila Kunis

Fashion month is in full swing, and even as we prepare for the colder seasons, we have been inspired by the design vision at New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

1 | Shiny Happy People

Libertine, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang all glanced back to the Rave culture of the early 90’s for their Spring 2015 NYFW collections. Shiny black acetate frames can mimic the latex pants at Marc by Marc Jacobs, while colorful glasses can integrate the bright spirit of the era.

2 | Underworld

Reflections on water, strong silhouettes devolving into fluid shapes were all inspirations at Calvin Klein Collection, Rodarte, and Narcisco Rodriguez. Linda Fargo of Bergdorf Goodman noted that the designs at Calvin Klein were “long and lean and clean, but the fabrics are still luxurious”. Classic frames are given fresh life with blue tones in dark navy and azure, and can also be a flattering replacement to black glasses.

3 | Bardot

A number of designers, including Altuzarra, Michael Kors and Diane von Furstenberg, drew inspiration from the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Justin O’Shea commented that the Altuzarra show found a way to “blend contrasts together”. Cat eye glasses, with their feminine upswept temples provide a perfect nod to this era and, as Michael Kors noted, “don’t you want to have a little charm in your life?”

4 | C’est Chic

If you’re looking to break away from the restraint of the 19050’s, designers Jason Wu for Hugo Boss, Anna Sui and Versus Versace looked to the decadence of the 1970’s for their Spring 2014 wardrobes. Andrew Bolton notes that the look at Anna Sui is not a carbon-copy of the period as design, fabrics and “how she styles it makes it more modern”. The essence of the era can be woven into your pieces through metal detailing, deep color tones and creative adornments.

5 | Breakthrough

Public School, Proenza Schouler, and Ralph Rucci presented a “downtown, cool, uniform, sporty edge” on the runway. Pieces that seemed restrained or tailored, when inspected had fabrics and design that displayed a deconstructed edge. Nicole Phelps notes that it is “so interesting to see them break apart these really traditional codes of Americana”. Glean inspiration from this style with traditional frame shapes that are made new with patterns and color ribbons peeking through modern acetates.

Military themes and its color palette become an ideal neutral base to allow pops of color and intricate details to shine. Ralph Lauren used cargo to highlight pieces in vibrant hues. Shades from a utilitarian theme ranged from light moss to dark olive and ranged from casual to luxurious cocktail with satin fabrics and elegant beadwork. Find the ideal shade of army greens to flatter your skin tone and provide a new neutral in your wardrobe through your glasses style.
