Did I get a pink eye?

In the morning my right contact dropped onto the floor. I rinsed it with my solution and put it back into my eye. Also, I forgot to take off my contacts while removing my makeup.Now, the corner of my right eye is a little pinkish. I also feel heavy in the bottom of my right eye. Can this be pink eye?I am so afraid.

    Don't be afraid of that, your eyes are only slightly infected, just leave it to be or put put some eye drops into your eyes, don't rub or itch them anymore. Pink eye is Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is an inflammation or infection of the transparent membrane (conjunctiva) that lines your eyelid and part of your eyeball. Inflammation causes small blood vessels in the conjunctiva to become more prominent, which is what causes the pink or red cast to the whites of your eyes.The cause of pink eye is commonly a bacterial or viral infection, an allergic reaction or - in babies - an incompletely opened tear duct.

    Pink eye, also called conjunctivitis, is caused by inflammation of conjunctiva which is the transparent membrane covering the white part of the eye and interior lining of the eyelids. So I think your eyes just get infected and what you have is just irritation. Don't worry. Just go to your eye dotor and he will give you some eye drops to deal with this problem.
