    Actually sleeping will not make your pink eyes get worse. The rest will be good for the eyes. If you get the pink eyes, you need to stay at home to accept the treatment. The good rest, including sleeping, is very necessary. You could use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to cure your pink eyes. You could also use the warm compress to make the eyes get comfortable.

    Pink eye, also known as conjunctivitis, is the inflammation or infection of the eyelids. It is really uncomfortable and annoying. Put it brief, sleeping have no necessary relationship with the worsen of pink eyes. However, if you sleep with contact lenses, it will actually worsen your condition.

    Well, in my opinion, sleeping cannot make pink eye more serious. So you do not need to worry about it. Generally speaking, pink eye, is an eye infection which will cause the white of the eye to turn red. And also, the infection normally occurs during rainy and wet season. When it occurs, redness and swelling in the eyes can be possible. To treat it, you can just try rose water. Also, for pink eyes, vitamin c intake can be essential. By the way, you can just try the chamomile tea, and just put cooled, chamomile tea bags on the eyes for 5 to 20 minutes. Of course, when you are sleeping, you can just wear a pair of eye patches to protect your eyes from further infection.
