    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Allergic conjunctivitis (eye allergy): Allergic conjunctivitis, also known as eye allergy, is the immune response that occurs when the eye comes in contact with an irritating substance known as an allergen. It is of three types: allergic, infective, and acute/chronic conjunctivitis. Allergens include dust, smoke, dander, mold, or pollen. Eye allergy symptoms include itching, burning sensation, watery eyes, red/pink eyes, scaling around the eyes, and swollen or puffy eyelids. It can be passed from one infected person to another; hence precaution like wearing sunglass or distancing is required in public places.
