    Yes, ear infection can also lead to eye infection. Maybe this fact can be strange for many people, but it is true. As we know that eye infection has three main causes. They can be bacterial, viral, and allergic. And Bacterial conjunctivitis is caused by the same bacteria that cause ear infections. In other words, it is possible to have eye infection when someone has an ear infection. Also, an ear infection can spread to the eyes and cause conjunctivitis, and eye infection. Anyway, you should be careful about it. So you should not touch your eyes, when you have ear infection, especially with the fingers which have touched the ears. Also, you can just try some ways to heal your ear infection, so that it can not lead to eye infection.

    Yes, ear infection can cause eye infection. The five sense organs, namely ears, eyes, lips, nose and tongue are interactive. Just as a machine, once a component of it goes wrong, the rest parts of the machine cannot operate well. The most common ear infection occurs in the middle ear and is caused by a bacterium intruding the ear. The bacterium multiplies and without timely treatment, it could cause eye infection.
