In the worst case scenario, you can even lose your vision.”
Ogunbor explained that conjunctivitis, commonly known as sore eyes, occurs when the transparent membrane of the eye (conjunctiva) becomes inflamed due to an infection or irritation brought on by bacterial, viral or allergic components.
“When this occurs, the blood vessels within the conjunctiva become inflamed, making the eye to turn visibly pink or reddish. Only a thorough examination will help diagnose the cause of conjunctivitis. While it can be irritating, conjunctivitis affects the vision, if treatment is not sought at the right time,” he said.
