Bacterial Conjunctivitis is more common in children. It can be distinguished from other forms of conjunctivitis, especially from viral conjunctivitis, as mucoid discharge is secreted from eyelids i.e. gluing of the eyelids.

Likewise, comments are given on gonococcal conjunctivitis and angular bacterial conjunctivitis. Infective conjunctivitis is also the mainstay of this lecture.
