What is Conjunctivitis?

Conjunctivitis is an irritation or allergy-related inflammation of the conjunctiva (a thin layer surrounding the white portion of the eyeball and the inner lining of the eyelids).

Conjunctivitis, also known as “pink eye,” is characterized by swollen, reddish eyes that leak a moist, yellowish fluid.

Conjunctivitis is a viral eye infection that can affect one or both eyes.
