"The last time I saw eye flu was in the year 1995 but I saw it this year as well. It came back with advancement, this virus has advanced. The people who got infected by it had it for few weeks despite of taking medicines. It healed only after two or three weeks or it even took a month to heal.

Please check.

The last time I saw eye flu..

Can you say you see a disease? I think you can see an outbreak of a disease.

Yes, you can. In this case it means 'encounter'.
I never heard of the term "eye flu" in my medical career either.

Again an Indian term I also didn't know this, that natives don't use this word (eye flu) like these words :-loose motion, bullet, passed out, eve teasing.

It's not true. Native speakers always use "pass out" and "bullet".

In BrE, most adults refer to it as conjunctivitis. However, they might call it "pink eye" when they're talking to a child.

Passed out is used frequently (not all but most of the people) to say that someone has completed the school or graduated from university like he passed out of school in the year 1998. Bullets for ammonation and there is an Indian bike by the name "bullet".
