    Not everyone is going to get pink eyes. But those who not always keep their eyes clean. For example, some people who do not like washing their hands often and always rub their eyes with the dirty hands, and then they can get the pink eyes more easily than those who like clean.

Sometimes it is contemporary, however, if the situation remains terrible, then it becomes necessary to seek help from an eye doctor.
