Brief Answer:
No, unless it is an infective conjunctivitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. No, seasonal eye allergy does not spread from person to person.

2. A person may have a similar allergy.

3. Conjunctivitis is a similar infection, which easily spreads from person to person.

4. Get an eye check-up done to differentiate allergic conjunctivitis from infective conjunctivitis.

If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
