Abstract

Eye flu conjunctivitis, also known as pink eyes, is a common and highly contagious eye infection. Viruses, bacteria, allergies, or chemicals can cause excessive redness, itching, and tearing. The main complication of glaucoma is pink eye, which can cause corneal damage that can affect your vision. Acute infectious causes (viral and bacterial) are the most common ocular disorders in primary care. Conjunctivitis infection usually occurs through direct or indirect contact. Direct transmission occurs when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Indirectly, it can spread through common personal items such as towels, makeup, pillows, or contact lenses. Adenoviruses are the most common cause of viral conjunctivitis and are mainly caused by bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pneumoniae. The most effective prevention is to avoid rubbing the eyes, especially with clean hands. Adenovirus, Haemophilus influenzae, pneumococcal, and Neisseria meningitidis vaccines are also effective.
