how do you say 红眼病?pinkeye? how do you say 红眼病,"pinkeye"? Do you say 红眼病 by saying "pink eye" or "green-eyed"?If not,what do you think of if a foreigner says pinkeye or green-eyed?红眼病is one kind of eye disease that will make your eyes turn red,it's infectious.And in a book,the author says English speakers often say红眼病 by saying "acute conjunctivitis",is he right?I think this word"acute conjunctivitis"may be too professional? And do you use "red-eyed flight" ?

The most common way people say it is Pink eye. Doctors and medical professionals use the term acute conjunctivitis. If you were to say acute conjunctivitis to someone on the street, probably they would not know what you are talking about. I don't understand what you mean by red-eyed flight.
