  • Redness in one or both eyes
  • Itchiness in one or both eyes
  • A gritty feeling in one or both eyes
  • A discharge in one or both eyes that forms a crust during the night that may prevent your eye or eyes from opening in the morning
  • Tearing
Conjunctivitis is a kind of common and recurring disease. It will take place frequently if you don't protect your eyes from harmful things. Things that might trigger conjunctivitis include:
  • Exposure to something for which you have an allergy (allergic conjunctivitis)
  • Exposure to someone infected with the viral or bacterial form of conjunctivitis
  • Using contact lenses, especially extended-wear lenses
