Abstract

The conjunctiva is a layer of tissue that lines the sclera (the white part of the eye) and the insides of the eyelids, but not the cornea (the clear part of the eye). Allergic conjunctivitis is an allergic reaction of the conjunctiva that occurs when a person’s immune system is sensitised and overreacts to an allergen (something that is usually harmless to someone else). Allergic conjunctivitis is not contagious and cannot be transferred from one person to another.
