IN THIS ARTICLE
The conjunctiva is a thin, transparent layer of tissues covering the front of the eye, including the sclera and the inside of the eyelids. The conjunctiva keeps bacteria and foreign material from getting behind the eye. The conjunctiva contains visible blood vessels that are visible against the white background of the sclera.
