In brief: Pink eye

Is most commonly caused by a virus.
Symptoms include redness of the whites of the eyes, watery drainage, swollen glands in front of your ears, and occasionally, vision loss and pain. If you have had a cold or have been exposed to someone else with pink eye, there is a chance you have it. It usually gets better in 5-7 days. If you're concerned, then see your eye doctor.

In brief: Your Dr can confirm

Pink eye is conjunctivitis.
It can be caused by things like viruses (common cold), bacteria, allergies, foreign body in the eye & chemical exposures. Pink eye symptoms can effect one or both eyes. They many include redness &/or itchiness, increased tearing, discharge & gritty sensation.
