The complication, known as chlamydial conjunctivitis, typically affects one eye, but it can occasionally involve both.

Symptoms include pink/red eye, crusting of lashes, lids stuck together, swollen eyelids, tearing and decreased vision.

The incubation period for chlamydial conjunctivitis varies between one to two weeks and can last up to 18 months if left untreated.

While the infection can be treated topically, antibiotic therapy is recommended to clear the infection.
