Conjunctivitis

Specialty of Ophthalmology

Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the mucous layer lining the eyelids, the front of the eyeball and the fornix of the eye. Its basic function is to protect the surfaces it coats, so that when infection occurs therein tends to swell. The most common symptoms of conjunctivitis are redness, burning and strange sensation in the eye as well as the appearance of yellow or green mucus, especially in the tabs. These symptoms also occur frequently in cases of allergy. Treatment of conjunctivitis includes applying eye drops or gel, along with a thorough cleaning of the area with sterile saline or warm water boiled.
