    No, you can't go to work with pink eyes. I advise you should go to work until you are fine. Because pink eye is a highly contagious disease and it can spread by direct contact with infected people. If you have pink eye, you should avoid touching the eye area and keep washing your hands often. Wearing sunglasses can prevent you from rubbing your eyes with your hand.Don't share towel, basin, handkerchiefs or something like that with your workmates, friends or relatives. Have the medications the doctor gives you to your eyes. Moreover, you should disinfecting surfaces such as desk can help prevent the spread of infectious pink eye.

    You'd better have a good rest at home. First of all, it is good for you. You should drink more water and keep on using the eye drops to release the symptom. Secondly, it is good for your workmates. The pink eyes are contagious. Once you get the pink eyes, it is not appropriate for you to appear in public.

    You'd better not because pink eye is acute bacteria conjunctivitis and has a strong infectivity. Once the eyes of a healthy person touch the gum of those with pink eye or things contaminated by their tears, such as the towel, handkerchief, washbasin, toys, etc, the person can be infected. With pink eye, you need to clear eye secretes to keep your eyes sanitary. Drip some effective antibiotic eyedrops and apply antibiotic eye cream before you go to bed. Wish you recover soon.
