There are many causes of conjunctivitis. Viruses are the most common cause. Other causes include:
* Allergies (allergic conjunctivitis)
* Certain diseases
* Chemical exposure
* Parasites (rarely)
* Use of contact lenses (especially extended-wear lenses)
"Pink eye" refers to a viral infection of the conjunctiva. These infections are especially contagious among children.
