Pink Eye is also known as Conjunctivitis. It is the inflammation of the outer layer of the eyes and the inner surface of the eyelids.

When a person is suffering from this condition he/she can feel a burning discharge, itching and redness in the protective membrane in the eyelids and the redness will cover the white areas of the eyes.

Here are some causes of Conjunctivitis:

- Viral Infection
- Bacterial Infection
- Allergies
- Infections from substances
- Eye products like: contact lenses, eye drops or eye ointments
