2. Tons of Tears
The infected eye will produce more tears. While your friends may think your sad… in reality… they should not likely seek to comfort you with closeness, but should take for the hills, and help you from a distance as to not contract Pink Eye themselves!
This symptom is, again very common with all types of Pink (or red) eye. This is likely a reaction of the eye, trying to flush out whatever is agitating it.
Viral Pink Eye is especially noted as having this as a symptom. Again, this is good to know, considering Viral Pink Eye is the most treacherous of them all, due to its lack of medical treatment options and high contagiousness.
