In brief: Occasional

Conjunctivitis is an infection of the lining of the eye.
It is usually of viral origin, but in trauma, pre-existing surgery or pediatric age group, might also be bacterial. In adults it tends to occur in "bunches" related to exposure to a case which can then spread. If you develop this condition, see your ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment.
