Ophthalmology
In brief: Pinkeye
Pinkeye, the colloquial term for viral/infectious conjunctivitis, is in most cases a local infection.
It may be associated with an upper respiratory tract infection. Otherwise it will not affect the rest of the body except for the stress of having the condition until it resolves.
