Hyderabad: The cases of viral conjunctivitis are increasing and among the prominent victims are TRS working president K.T. Rama Rao, who posted a message on Twitter about it.

Viral conjunctivitis is usually seen during the winter but due to the weather fluctuations, strong wind movements and pre-monsoon thunderstorms, the incidence is being noted in summer too.

 

Dr Atul Gupta, senior ophthalmologist, explained, “It occurs due to the presence of virus in the air.

It needs to be given supportive treatment of lubricants, rest and isolation.”
