Lubricating Eye Drops
There are different types of pink eye, but the most common form is viral conjunctivitis, which is caused by a virus. In some cases, pink eye can be more severe and may require medical treatment.
Oral eyedrops work by delivering medication directly to the affected area through the bloodstream. This allows them to work more quickly and effectively than traditional eye drops, which are applied topically to the eye’s surface.
Oral eyedrops are typically used for more severe cases of pink eye that do not respond to traditional treatments like over-the-counter antihistamines or artificial tears. They may also be used for people who cannot use conventional eyedrops due to allergies or other medical conditions.
Most cases of pink eye are mild and will resolve on their own within 7-10 days without medical treatment. However, there are some cases where one should see a doctor. If one experiences severe symptoms, including severe pain and blurred vision, the symptoms do not improve after a few days, or there is any discharge from the eyes, it is best to see a doctor immediately, as these could be signs of a more severe condition.
