    Mono does not cause pink eye. Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is usually caused by viral infection, bacterial infections, allergies, irritants and dryness. Adenoviruses and herpes simplex viruses are the common causes of viral conjunctivitis. Acute bacterial conjunctivitis is commonly caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae while Staphylococcus aureus, Moraxella lacunata and gram negative enteric flora are the causes of chronic bacterial conjunctivitis.
