Pink eye is caused by a virus infection. It is different than a red eye caused by a bacterial infection or an allergy. Consequently, antibiotic or allergy drops will not properly treat the condition. Viral infections can cause vision loss or problems with glare in up to 15%-35% of cases. Pink eye is highly contagious and proper steps should be taken to prevent spreading the infection. At least 50% of patients with pink eye have the same virus on their hands according to a clinical study. Proper in-office treatment can reduce the course of the infection significantly. A typical viral infection of the eye, or pink eye, can last between 2 to 4 weeks. In-office treatment can shorten that time to 2 days.
