Conjunctivitis is swelling or infection of the membrane lining the eyelids. Conjunctivitis is caused when the conjunctiva is exposed to bacteria and other irritants. Most cases of Conjunctivitis are caused by viruses. Viral Conjuctivitis is more commonly known as “pink eye” and is easily spread, especially among children.
Other causes of Conjunctivitis include allergies, bacteria, chemical exposure and even contact lenses.
- Blurred vision
- Crusts that form on the eyelid overnight
- Eye pain
- Gritty feeling in the eyes
- Increased tearing
- Itching of the eye
- Redness in the eyes
- Sensitivity to light
The treatment for Conjunctivitis can vary depending on the cause. Allergic conjunctivitis may respond to allergy treatment.
