conjuntivitis
Explanation:
The noun conjunctiva has one meaning:

Meaning #1: a transparent membrane covering the eyeball and under surface of the eyelid.
conjunctiva

The conjunctiva is a membrane that covers the sclera (white part of the eye) and lines the inside of the eyelids. It helps lubricate the eye by producing mucus and tears, although not as much tears as the lacrimal gland. (London Place Eye Center, 2003). The conjunctiva over the eyeball is called the bulbar or ocular conjunctiva, and the conjunctiva lining the eyelids is called the palpebral conjunctiva. (Medicinenet.com, 1999)

The conjunctiva is best known because of its inflamed state, conjunctivitis, which is more commonly known as 'pink eyes'.
