    Yes, chances are that you get pink eye for eating cheese. The cheese which is left over without proper preservation measurement will turn green and grow mold. There is a fume from the mold, and your eyes may be infected by the bacteria and fungus in the fume when the fume touches your eyes. As a result, you may suffer from bacterial infection which causes conjunctivitis.

    In some cases, in spite of the fact that they are quite rare, some bacteria found in cheese or dairy products can cause a severe eye infection. This is most common when the cheese is left out, and then it turns green with mold, which has a fume that will cause an irritation to the eye. If an eye becomes painful and red, you should consult your eye doctor as soon as possible to rule out more serious eye problems such as glaucoma or foreign body in the eyes.

    Usually eating cheese will not give you pink eyes, except the cheese is gone bad and is with some bacterium. Pink eyes are usually caused by the contagious infection or the coming invisible bacterium. Thus you'd better avoid the bacterium things. Once you get the pink eyes, you need to stay at home to treat the eyes carefully. At the same time, you need to use some eye drops or warm compress as the home remedy to help you release the symptom.
