Conjunctivitis and keratitis diseases are eye inflammations which are caused by viral, bacterial and parasitic pathogens. These agents mainly include adenoviruses, herpes simplex viruses, C. trachomatis and human herpes viruses such as CMV, EBV and VZV. If the patient has symptoms such as eye redness, blurred vision, pain, photophobia, corneal opacity or hypopyon, clinical examination is urgently required. The diagnosis should be performed and the bacterial or viral factors should be differentiated in order to evaluate the treatment strategy. The delay in diagnosing conjunctivitis and the use of inappropriate antibiotic treatment might trigger the persistence of the infection.
