Often referred to as ‘Red Eye’ – because the condition inflames the tissue layer covering the eye. As well as redness conjunctivitis can also cause itchiness and watering of the eye.

The condition usually starts in one eye, but can spread to both.

Causes of conjunctivitis include allergies to shampoo products, viral or bacterial infections and reactions to dust or pollen.
