In brief: Conjunctivitis

Conjunctivitis is very common, usually caused by commonly found viruses or bacteria.
The most important safeguards you can take are to avoid contact with anyone who has pink eye and to make sure you wash your hands thoroughly when you are concerned that you have touched something that is contaminated. Also, keep your hands off your eyes in case there are germs on your hands.
