CONCLUSION

Chronic Infective Conjunctivitis

Many people suffer form chronic eye infection or inflammation which cannot be attributed directly to pollen, or any other obvious cause. The symptoms range from a persistent mild eye irritation without any overt signs of inflammation, to semi-acute episodes of foreign-body sensation, redness, watering, mild itch etc. Not infrequently, the patient can relate the eye irritation to a recent cold or nasal symptoms. This is often (but not always) associated with mucous secretion in the mornings at the inner corner of the eye ("sleep"). The individual usually rubs the eye but this usually exacerbates the condition. See Part II B for detailed discussion of chronic infective conjunctivitis and its treatment.
