Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye. It is also referred as " Pink eye". In acute form it is highly contagious.
Causes are infective, viral or allergic.
In the new born it can be serious, and gonococcal and Chlamydial infection must be excluded.
Symptoms are grittiness, redness, pain and discharge.
Allergic form of conjunctivitis usually worse in spring and early summer, and often associated with other allergic problems such as hay fever. Clinically, most signs are under the upper lid which may have a cobblestone appearance instead of a smooth surface.
A similar condition may be seen in soft contact lens wearers.
Viral conjunctivitis has become much more common.
Vision is not affected in conjunctivitis, but with some virus infections keratitis may be present, and result in visual loss and pain.
