Medical conditions of the conjunctivaInflammation of the conjunctiva is known as conjunctivitis, or, commonly, pink-eye.
A pinguecula is a small, benign, yellowish spot on the conjunctiva over the exposed areas of the white of the eye. Pingueculas are sometimes attributed to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, and are common in elderly people. In some cases, pingueculas may be removed for cosmetic reasons.
