Conjunctivitis (आँख आना), also known as pink eye, is inflammation of the outermost layer of the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelid. It makes the eye appear pink or reddish. Pain, burning, scratchiness, or itchiness may occur. The affected eye may have increased tears or be “stuck shut” in the morning. The swelling of the white part of the eye may also occur. Itching is more common in cases due to allergies. Conjunctivitis can affect one or both eyes. The eyes being important organs of the body, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System appeals to our valuable readers to read and know about conjunctivitis for well-being.
Conjunctivitis Symptoms (आँख आने के लक्षण)
Red-eye, swelling of the conjunctiva, and watering of the eyes are symptoms common to all forms of conjunctivitis. However, the pupils should be normally reactive, and the visual acuity normal.
This conjunctivitis is often associated with an infection of the upper respiratory tract, a common cold, or a sore throat. Its symptoms include excessive watering and itching. The infection usually begins in one eye but may spread easily to the other eye.
Allergic (एलर्जी से)
It is inflammation of the conjunctiva due to allergy. The specific allergens may differ among patients. Symptoms result from the release of histamine and other active substances by mast cells, and consist of redness, swelling of the conjunctiva, itching, and increased production of tears.
Bacterial (जीवाणुओं से)
This conjunctivitis causes the rapid onset of conjunctival redness, swelling of the eyelid, and a sticky discharge. Typically, symptoms develop first in one eye but may spread to the other eye within 2–5 days.
Eye injury from chemicals may result when an acidic or alkaline substance gets in the eye. Alkali burns are typically worse than acidic burns. Mild burns produce conjunctivitis, while more severe burns may cause the cornea to turn white. Litmus paper may be used to test for chemical causes. When a chemical cause has been confirmed, the eye or eyes should be flushed until the pH is in the range 6–8. Anaesthetic eye drops can be used to decrease the pain.
Conjunctivitis Causes (आँख आने के कारण)
Bacterial infections, allergies, other irritants, and dryness are also common causes. Both bacterial and viral infections are contagious, passing from person to person, or spread through contaminated objects or water. Contact with contaminated fingers is a common cause of conjunctivitis. Infection by human adenovirus accounts for 65% to 90% of cases of viral conjunctivitis.
Adenoviruses are the most common cause of viral conjunctivitis. Herpetic keratoconjunctivitis, caused by herpes simplex viruses, can be serious and requires treatment with aciclovir. Acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis is a highly contagious disease caused by one of two enteroviruses, enterovirus 70 and coxsackievirus A24.
These were first identified in an outbreak in Ghana in 1969, and have spread worldwide since then, causing several epidemics.
The most common causes of acute bacterial conjunctivitis are:
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Streptococcus pneumoniae, and
- Haemophilus influenzae.
Though very rare, hyperacute cases are usually caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Neisseria meningitidis. Chronic cases of bacterial conjunctivitis are those lasting longer than 3 weeks and are typically caused by S. aureus, Moraxella lacunata, or Gram-negative enteric flora.
Allergic (एलर्जी से)
The causes of conjunctivitis may also be by allergens, such as:
- Dust mites
- Balsam of Peru
- Eye drops
The most frequent cause of conjunctivitis is allergic conjunctivitis and it affects 15% to 40% of the population.
Other causes (अन्य कारण)
Conjunctivitis is part of the triad of reactive arthritis, which is thought to be caused by autoimmune cross-reactivity following certain bacterial infections. Reactive arthritis is highly associated with HLA-B27. Conjunctivitis is associated with the autoimmune disease relapsing polychondritis.
Conjunctivitis Diagnosis (आँख आने का निदान)
A viral culture may be appropriate in epidemic case clusters.
Differential diagnosis of Conjunctivitis (आँख आने का विभेदक निदान)
Some more serious conditions can present with a red eye, such as infectious keratitis, angle-closure glaucoma, or iritis. These conditions require the urgent attention of an ophthalmologist. Signs of such conditions include:
- Decreased vision
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Inability to keep the eye open
- A pupil that does not respond to light
- Severe headache with nausea
- Fluctuating blurring
- Tearing and mucoid discharge
- Mild photophobia is common
However, if any of these symptoms are prominent, considering other diseases such as glaucoma, uveitis, keratitis, and even meningitis or carotico-cavernous fistula is important.
Conjunctivitis Prevention (आँख आने की रोकथाम)
The most effective prevention is good hygiene, especially avoiding rubbing the eyes with infected hands. Vaccination against adenovirus, Haemophilus influenzae, pneumococcus, and Neisseria meningitidis is also effective.
Povidone-iodine eye solution has been found to prevent neonatal conjunctivitis. It is becoming more commonly used globally because of its low cost.
Conjunctivitis Management (आँख आने का प्रबंधन)
It resolves in 65% of cases without treatment, within 2–5 days. The prescription of antibiotics is not necessary in most cases.
Viral conjunctivitis (वायरल आँख आना)
This conjunctivitis usually resolves on its own and does not require any specific treatment. Antihistamines e.g. diphenhydramine or mast cell stabilizers e.g. cromolyn may be used to help with the symptoms.
Allergic conjunctivitis (एलर्जी से आँख आना)
For allergic conjunctivitis, cool water poured over the face with the head inclined downward constricts capillaries, and artificial tears sometimes relieve discomfort in mild cases. In more severe cases, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and antihistamines may be prescribed.
Bacterial conjunctivitis (बैक्टीरियल आँख आना)
It usually resolves without treatment. Topical antibiotics may be needed only if no improvement is observed after 3 days. No serious effects were noted either with or without treatment. Because antibiotics do speed healing in bacterial conjunctivitis, their use may be considered.
Antibiotics are also recommended for those who wear contact lenses, are immunocompromised, have a disease which is thought to be due to chlamydia or gonorrhea, have a fair bit of pain, or have copious discharge. Gonorrheal or chlamydial infections require both oral and topical antibiotics.
Chemical conjunctivitis (रसायन से आँख आना)
Conjunctivitis due to chemicals is treated via irrigation with Ringer’s lactate or saline solution. Chemical injuries, particularly alkali burns, are medical emergencies, as they can lead to severe scarring and intraocular damage. People with chemically induced conjunctivitis should not touch their eyes to avoid spreading the chemical.
Conjunctivitis Epidemiology (आँख आने का महामारी विज्ञान)
It is the most common eye disease. Rates of the disease are related to the underlying cause which varies by age as well as the time of year. The most common cause of infectious conjunctivitis is viral conjunctivitis.
Almost acute conjunctivitis affects 6 million people annually in the United States.
