In brief: Redness and Discharg
Conjunctivitis can be due to many causes: bacterial, viral, allergic, chemical, etc.
The most common in probably bacterial and causes redness, mucus discharge and sometimes foreign body feeling or frank pain. Sometimes there is associated blurred vision from the mucus discharge. Bacterial conjunctivitis will frequently cause enlarge a painful lymph node just in front of the ear on that side.

The most common form of conjunctivitis (in adults) is by far viral, not bacterial. This may also cause pre-auricular lymph node enlargement. Bacterial infection as a cause of conjunctivitis is uncommon in adults but often found in children

In brief: Redness, irritation
Conjunctivitis, usually a viral infection of the eye lining, causes irritation, foreign object feeling, overflow of tears and obvious redness of the eyes.
If there is pain or change in the vision it could be a more serious kind, or something else. Your ophthalmologist can sort this out.
