Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To provide a clinical overview of the types of conjunctivitis that are encountered by practicing clinical allergist-immunologists.

DATA SOURCES:

Published literature in peer reviewed journals found in the National Library of Medicine (PubMed) database using the keywords ocular allergy and/or allergic conjunctivitis.

STUDY SELECTION:

Studies related to ocular allergy and/or allergic conjunctivitis were selected for inclusion in this review.

RESULTS:

Four clinical scenarios are presented that mimic frequently encountered inflammatory disorders that present as red eyes.

CONCLUSIONS:

The signs and symptoms associated with the various inflammatory conditions affecting the conjunctiva often overlap and need to be differentiated to maximize care for patients with conjunctivitis.
