    It is said that people having the photophobia are born to be because of the lack of gene of MI. However, we could not get rid of the possibility of after developed photophobia. You'd better go to see the doctor and find the actual situation of your eyes. At the same time, you could treat your pink eyes through the medical care.

    Well, yes, pink eye can lead to photophobia. Generally speaking, people get eye infection when they are with irritants. At that situation, your eyes will be red and itchy, and then the pink eye may occur. On the other hand, for photophobia, an infection or inflammation that irritates the eyes can cause photophobia. So when your eyes get pink eyes because of infection, it is likely to have photophobia. Anyway, you should try some ways to treat your pink eyes, and then photophobia may disappear.
