Conjunctivitis is a contamination of the conjunctiva, a slim membrane layering the white portion of the sclera, eye, or the internal surface of the lids. Conjunctivitis can be very contagious and expand easily within large collections of people. Occasionally, especially in children, the ailment can affect visualization.

When the eye’s ability to resist bacterial infections is compromised, conjunctival infection occurs. This can happen during serious illnesses or in immunocompromised individuals. Bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, the Moraxella species, the Hemophilus species, and the Staphylococcus species can lead to infection. Bacterial conjunctivitis can be further classified into the following types.

Viral Conjunctivitis:

It is a highly contagious condition that begins in one eye and often spreads to the other. As antibiotics do not cure this type of infection, infected individuals must wait for the condition to ease by itself. Medical attention is essential if the infection lasts for over seven days. Adenoviruses and herpes viruses are commonly associated with viral conjunctivitis.

Allergic conjunctivitis:

The conjunctiva, when exposed to the environment, is often associated with allergic and immune-mediated reactions, which lead to allergic conjunctivitis. In this condition, type 1 hypersensitivity reactions occur when an allergen reacts with IgE antibodies, resulting in mast cell degranulation and release of inflammatory mediators.
