    Well, yes, pink eyes are contagious. So they can spread through many ways, such as water, especially in the pool water. So just be careful about it. Also, you can just ask the eye doctor who can tell what to do to prevent it. By the way, you should know that Bacterial (staph or strep), usually from hand-to-eye contact, and viral infections associated with a cold, sore throat, cold sore or measles, are causes for most conjunctivitis. When it occurs, your eyes will be red, bloodshot, itchy. In some cases, discharges may occur too.

    So it is true that pink eyes would be quite contagious through direct contact with the things that the patients have touched. Besides, you should keep a distance from the patient until he recovers. Anyway, you have to be careful, on the other hand, the patient has to be careful not to contaminate other things, and keep his hands or stuff clean.
