Overview

Conjunctivitis is also called as pink eye, It is an inflammation or infection to the transparent outer membrane (conjunctiva) of an eye. The minute blood vessels present in the transparent membrane become red and swollen, causing redness in the eye’s white part. Pink eye is caused by bacterial or viral infections, allergy or open duct issue in babies. It is a contagious disease; hence early diagnosis and prevention should be taken to contain this. Though it causes irritation due to swelling in the white portion of the eye, it hardly affects vision.
