Inflammation: There are a couple of prominent possibilities including viral conjunctivitis and an internal inflammation termed uveitis (or iritis). Because this is persistent, might be infectious and could be visually threatening, you should see your ophthalmologist as soon as practical to get a proper diagnosis.
