    Usually the pink eyes are happened on both eyes because of the infection from the bacterium or other people with pink eyes for its contagious character. However, it is still possible to get one eye with pink eyes. You must get rid of the bacterium in one eye in order to avoid the other one's infection. You'd better have the good rest for the eyes.

The pink eye disease often starts in one eye then another one after one-two days, but some people get it in both eyes at the same time. It depends on when it is injected with bacteria.
