Allergic conjunctivitis is common in children and adults. It is often called as the ‘pink eye’ which is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. It is a tissue in the eyeball which helps keep the eyes moist. This eye allergy occurs when something allergic irritates the conjunctiva. There are two types of allergic conjunctiva, acute allergic conjunctivitis and chronic allergic conjunctivitis. The allergy could be due to household dust, pollen from trees and grass, mold spores, animal dander, chemical scents and detergents.
