If someone has pinkeye can you catch it just by looking at them?
or only by physical contact

It depends on if you're staring them down or if it was just a quick glance.

NO. not by just looking at someone who has pinkeye.
If you do get it, you got to check out with your Doc to determine if its Viral or bacterial Pinkeye. If bacterial, antibiotics will help. If Viral, avoiding contact with others and taking rest would be helpful.
It usually goes away in 7 to 10 days w/o any medicines.

THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET PINK EYE IS BY CONTACT. SO WASH YOUR HANDS WELL BECAUSE IT CAN EASILY SPREAD.

Good for you, successfully answered your own question.

If you are looking at them very, very closely so you brush lashes, or bump eyeballs.

don't be rediculous. pink eye is only contracted by physical contact and only under the condition that the person has rubbed the infected eye and then touched you and you touched your eye.

No, only by physical contact...but pinkeye is really contagious, so wash your hands frequently if you're around someone who has it.

You cannot do so by looking at them, otherwise we would all catch a lot of other diseases. Only by physical contact, if u shake or touch the infected person's hand after they have perhaps rubbed the infected eye and touch you. Make sure that we all keep washing our hands and keep those nasty germs at bay.
