Conjunctivitis or Eye Infection. It is on the rise in my country and one in every 20 people are suffering from it. My old mum in law who is 90+ has also got it and it breaks my heart to see her suffer. The eyes become red and swollen and hurt a lot. Eye drops of course help, but it takes its own course of 4 to 5 days. Is this everywhere in the world?

Yes, many are suffering from eye infection. Even Isaac and Jacob in the Holy Bible suffered from eye defects and they could not see that Jacob was able to deceive Isaac against his twin brother Esau. This seems to be a normal illness of people in old age and I think while people are still young, they should take care of their eyes very well and eat foods good for the eyes and eyesight.
