    Well, pink eye is basically caused by inflammation. Usually, the infection affects the eyes through allergens, bacteria or viruses. In other words, it is caused by the irritants. And it can certainly be worse if you ignore it and not take some measures to cure it. When it become worse, itching, watering eyes, swollen lids and a thick discharge can be possible. What's worse, once the inflammation attack to the cornea, it would even give rise to blindness. Therefore, for your sake of eyes, you'd better keep the habit of good hygiene, and take some measures to speed up the healing process of pink eyes fast immediately as soon as you get pink eyes.

    Pink eye is very common and it usually is not serious and goes away in seven to ten days even if you do not take care of it. As long as you do not rub your eyes with your hands and wear contact lenses during this special period, your pink eye will heal on its own. Otherwise, it will aggravate and do harm to your eyes.
