Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis) (Definition)
"Pink eye" refers to a viral infection of the conjunctiva. These infections are especially contagious among children. Newborns can be infected by bacteria in the birth canal. This condition is called ophthalmia neonatorum, and it must be treated immediately to preserve eyesight. "Pink eye" refers to a viral infection of the conjunctiva.

No: Sounds a bit rude but this will not transmit disease of any kind.
Bad luck or hygiene: Most "pink eye" is caused by a viral infection on the inner part of the eyelid and thin moist "skin"covering the eyeball-called the conjunctiva. Once infected its called "conjunctivitis." you infect your eye when you touch a surface (or person) with the virus and rub your eye-transfering the virus. Frequent hand washing helps prevent this. Sharing towels or pillows can also cause infection.
No: No, but you might get angry.Get a more detailed answer ›
Flatulence: Will not cause any kind of eye infection.
Yes: Pink eye is caused by the same virus that causes the common cold. It is extremely contagious and can remain infective on surfaces for hours. If you touched someone with pink eye and then touched your face (specifically your eye), you can certainly become infected. Hand washing and alcohol sanitizers effectively kill the virus, so be sure to wash after touching someone with pink eye!
Bacterial "pink eye": More commonly people can get a bacterial conjuctivitis if your partner has an untreated std such as gonorrhea, or even just a uti. Then after handling the genital area, and touching your eyes without washing your hands, you can transmit diseases to your eyes. I have also teated patients who ended up with unusual pathogens in their eyes after oral genital contact.See 1 more doctor answer

No risk: This is entirely harmless, without signficant risk of pink eye or any other health problem. Normal hygiene always includes washing hands after toilet -- and, by extension, after handling your own or another person's used underwear -- your mouth, skin, or eyes cannot be infected without direct contact with the contaminated item. No infection through the air. Don't worry about rinsing your eyes.
HELP!! Can smelling underwear after you fart cause pink eye? Rinsed my eyes immediately after this. Should I be ok?
Went to the doctor with pink eye last Tuesday. She prescribed drops, said it'll look better in a few days, but could last weeks. My face and eyeball h?
Viral conjunctivitis: It apparently is being treated for a viral eye infection. This virus can be present with red eye and discharge worse x 3 days, then resolves over 1-2 weeks. Without systemic symptoms, no worries. Use bacterial gentak drops until symptoms resolve. If symptoms i.e. eyelid swelling, change of vision occur, see eye MD.
I'm having throbbing pain in the right hemisphere of my head I currently have pink eye. What could be causing the throbbing?
It may not: Pink eye is usually caused by direct contact with the eye, not by a sneeze.
Puffy/swollen left eyelid for six months my left eyelid has been puffy and swollen for six months. Alleregy meds haven't done a thing for me. I went to dr and it isn't pink eye or anything of that nature. The puffiness is now on my left side of my face too
Many: Many many things can cause swollen eyelids (lid edema). Strange that it is just on one side. If has ben going on for six months, it is probably not an infection. It could be an allergic reaction to something. The confusing part is the one-sided-ness. I would see a local specialist to have it looked at and evaluated.See 2 more doctor answers
