Episcleritis. Close-up of the right eye of a 36-year-old female patient with recurrent episcleritis, an inflammation of the episclera, a thin layer of tissue between the conjunctiva and the sclera (the white outer layer of the eye). Treatment is often not necessary but lubricant eye drops (artificial tears) may be used to reduce irritation and discomfort.
