In brief: Its your hands

Many eye infections (e.
g. Pink eye) are transmitted by the eye secretions (e.g. You rub your eye, shake hands with someone and then he rubs his eye, etc.). When you are talking about your own eyes, than rubbing, a washcloth, makeup applicator, etc, can all transmit to the other eye.
