Yes - pink eye: Pink eye is highly contagious. It is most commonly caused by a virus. There's a good chance you had it before (when you were younger) so that's why your case is more mild now. If vision is affected, you have fever, real pain, or nasty junk from the eye -u need to see a doctor right away. The determination of whether this is a bacteria or a virus should be pretty obvious if you can show it to a doc ...Read more

It: It is likely that you have caused some minor scratches on the surface of your cornea from wearing the contacts overnight.

Now pain is not the same symptom as itching (opposite spectrum) so if she is also experiencing viral illness, could be viral conjunctivitis. Bacterial infection less likely. ...Read more
