    Firstly, don't worry. Pink eyes can exactly be cured. And it is very rare for people with pink eyes get permanently damages as a matter of fact. However, it's quite a troublesome problem. Pink eye is a bacterial infection caused by some bacteria. And it is very contagious, which is dangerous for you and everyone around you. For people suffered from pink eyes, part of their cornea may get inflamed that may cause eye pain, blurry vision and light sensitivity. So, you should wash your hands frequently if you have it. You can put some ice on your eyes and change it frequently. Besides, you can drop some eye drops in your eyes, and it can relieve your symptom. But if your eyes become serious, just go and see an eye doctor as soon as possible.
