In brief: Not usually
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation or infection of the eyelid skin that is in contact with the eye, and the skin of the eyeball itself.
It is usually irritating but not painful. If someone has pain of the eye, he/she should be evaluated immediately by an eye doctor, as this may indicate a more serious condition.
