Treatment Options

Treating Pink Eye

If you have viral conjunctivitis,  you will generally not need medication. With bed rest, the virus should run its course within seven to fourteen days. For more serious forms of viral pink eye, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication. The most well-known effective antiviral medication for pink eye is ganciclovir, which is applied topically. 


Bacterial pink eye is much easier to treat, though it’s not always required. With antibiotics, you can see drastic improvement within 24 hours. Antibiotics come in the form of eye drops and topical ointments.


For allergic pink eye, you’re your doctor may prescribe antihistamines, including loratadine (Claritin) and cetirizine (Zyrtec). These can help to relieve symptoms but may only be necessary. Don’t take antihistamines or give antihistamines to your child until you have consulted your doctor.
