    Yes, the pink eyes may spread by sharing drinks. As we know, the pink eyes are the inflammation eyes which can be contagious. It is often happened in hot season where the bacterium is moving actively. You should not share the drinks with people getting the pink eyes. Or else, you will get the pink eyes too. People with pink eyes should stay at home and not go out and take part in the public activities.

    Pink eye is the inflammation or redness or hemorrhage of the outer layer of the eye. Pink eye can be caused by viruses and bacteria that can be spread from person to person. Pink eye is contagious and it is easily spread by contact with fluid from the eyes, nose, and mouth of an infected person or through contact with a contaminated object touched by the infected person, such as towel, handkerchief, washbasin, toy, coin, doorknob, etc. Therefore, when one gets pink eyes, you should not share drinks with him, otherwise you can be infected with pink eyes easily.
