Brief introduction of conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis is a common disease in ophthalmology, but its incidence has not been determined yet. Because most conjunctiva is in direct contact with the outside world, it is easily stimulated by infectious (such as bacteria, viruses, chlamydia, etc.) and non-infectious factors (trauma, chemical substances and physical factors, etc.) in the surrounding environment. Moreover, conjunctiva is rich in blood vessels and lymphoid tissues, and its own and external antigens are easy to sensitize it. Commonly known as pinkeye.
