  • Viral keratitis: An eye infection that is caused due to exposure to Herpes simplex virus.
  • Fungal keratitis: An eye infection caused due to fungus.

 Ayurveda describes eye infections as Abhishyand (literally meaning congestion of eye). Abhishyand is related to pathological changes in the strotas (channels) around the head region and these lead to congestion of vessels in the eye causing the symptoms similar to that of conjunctivitis.4
