Conjunctivitis turns to be an all-weather ailment these days.


Conjunctivitis, or the so called Pink Eye or the commonly known Madra Eye generally takes effect during summer but over a couple of years it even occurs during winter and mostly it is now reported throughout the year. 

This has now become a common trend and doctors claim that the number of cases has gone up in the past two weeks.

Eye hospitals in the City have been noticing that at least 15-20 out of every 100 outpatient cases are those suffering from conjunctivitis. “We have been seeing that about 15 per cent of the outpatients have the infection.”

The doctors claim that the cases does not effect to be severe when compared to the last couple of years.

Conjunctivitis generally effects from January to May but this time, climatic changes have contributed significantly for the spread of the infection.
“There has been continuous change in the weather. The city has seen downpours too and this too could be one of the reasons for the virus to spread.

“Initially, it was believed that mango flies were the medium through which it spreads. The typical symptoms are redness in the eye, irritation, severe pain and watery eyes. 

There is a myth that the infection spreads by looking at the eye of the affected. It is important to take necessary precautions as it is contagious,”
