Default Toxoplasmosis effect on the eye

Toxoplasma causes chorioretinitis and it does not cause conjunctivitis and so it does not cause perulent discharge.

Where did you read that it causes such?

It doesn't have symptoms, may be only vision loss. You suspect chorioretinitis on the basis of the background of the patient, such as a new pet or cat at home or CNS symptoms ...etc.
