Conjunctivitis, commonly known as red eye, is the result of an inflamed conjunctiva (white-colored part of the eye).
- Red eye
- Itchy & foreign-body sensation
- Discharging of pus
- Watery discharge
Conjunctivitis may be due to many causes, such as bacterial, viral, allergic, contact lens wear or in rare cases, through sexually-transmitted disease (STD). Therefore, it is important to diagnose the cause of the red eye prior to treatment.
