Conjunctivitis – Pink Eye

An inflammation of the conjunctiva, the delicate transparent tissue that covers the white of the eye and lines the inside of the eyelids is known as conjunctivitis. A common nickname for it is “pink eye” because of the frequent reddening of the eyes. Conjunctivitis can be caused by various factors including viral or bacterial infections, allergies, irritants, or underlying medical conditions. The condition is highly contagious and can spread from person to person through direct contact, contaminated objects, or respiratory droplets. Conjunctivitis can cause symptoms such as redness, itching, excessive tearing, discharge, swollen eyelids, and sensitivity to light.
