Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis is a medical term for inflammation of the “conjunctiva.” The conjunctiva is a thin, transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner eyelids and outer surface of the eye. While conjunctivitis is more common in children, it can also happen in adults. Conjunctivitis is also called “pink eye” or "red eye."

Conjunctivitis can be acute or chronic depending on the cause of the condition, the symptoms involved, and how long it lasts. Acute conjunctivitis usually goes away in a few days, while chronic conjunctivitis can last much longer, or come back again and again.

Conjunctivitis usually does not cause permanent vision problems. However, in rare cases, it can cause damage if symptoms are severe and are not properly treated.
