Hi Hanim, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Eye pain is inflammation of the eye due to infection. Infection of the eye can be caused by viruses or bacteria, but the most common cause is a virus (viral conjunctivitis). Viral infection of the eye is an infection that is highly contagious. Transmission can occur through contact with the eye, which is contaminated with the virus, or contact with the eye. This means that if your hand touches your friend's eye, or touches your friend's other objects that are contaminated with the virus, then you touch your eye, the virus will spread to your eye. Sometimes contamination can also occur through airway droplets (depending on the type of virus that infects), for example when someone coughs or sneezes.
Wearing sunglasses will not prevent disease transmission. If you experience eye pain, you should not go to school until your pain gets better so you don't spread eye pain to your other friends. Your friends who have eye pain should not go to school first. To prevent transmission, you are also advised not to touch your eyes, wash your hands with soap after touching your eyes, wash your hands before touching your eyes. You are also advised not to exchange towels or use the same pillow / bolster with other people.
