Is there a difference between pink eye and a cold in your eye?

Viral conjunctivitis comes on fast when the eye or body is infected with a virus. Often just an additional symptom of the cold or flu, viral conjunctivitis causes a sticky, watery discharge that is very contagious. This infection should go away within 3-5 days, but it can also trigger bacterial conjunctivitis.

What causes cold in your eyes?

Viral conjunctivitis is highly contagious and is caused by a virus such as the common cold or herpes simplex virus. Eye discharge associated with viral pink eye typically is clear and watery, but may include a white or light yellow mucus component.
