Conjunctivitis (pink eye)| Bharti eye foundation
Conjunctivitis, more commonly referred to as "pink eye," is an infection or swelling of your conjunctiva, a thin, transparent covering that covers the white part of your eye and lays over the inner surface of your eyelid.
Your conjunctiva's veins become inflamed when you have pink eye. This causes your eye to get red or pink, which is commonly associated with conjunctivitis.
Pink eye may come in a few different forms and is frequently associated with medications and side effects that change.
