    it is possible to have eye infection from tooth infection. There are some patients with serious tooth infection experienced swollen eyelids and faces. Tooth infection, such as tooth abscess might be caused by bacteria or virus. While pink eye is the acute inflammation of conjunctiva caused by infectious or noninfectious causes. Bacterial or viral infection of eyes are the main causes of pink eye. We know that a cold can cause pink eye for spreading the infection to eyes. In the same way, tooth and mouth are very close to eyes too. It is quite possible to spread the infection to eyes. Pink eye is a not serious problem. In most cases of infectious pink eye, warm compress helps a lot. I suggest you to visit a dentist at once.
