Conjunctivitis is an inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, the clear tissue that lines the white part of the eye (sclera) and the inner surface of the eyelids. Conjunctivitis is commonly called pink eye. It is usually a self-limited condition and does not cause lasting damage to vision. However, conjunctivitis can be associated with more serious conditions, such as uveitis, iritis, or keratitis, which can lead to vision loss.
