Welcome to Just Answer
If you are worried about having passed on a pelvic inflammatory disease(PID) to your wife because of a doubtful red eye
, then I guess it is very unlikely. Even if you were to have contacted a red eye from your colleague, it is more likely to be a viral conjunctivitis
which has a self limiting course of 1-3 weeks ( depending on the virulence of the virus).The viruses known to cause conjunctivitis are not known to cause PID.Gonococci ( bacteria) is known to cause bacterial conjunctivitis and also PID. But the chances of these occuring is very very remote in your case as your symptoms are there only for 3 days ( but you have mentioned only itching and soreness whereas gonoccal conjunctivitis would have severe redness along with copious discharge from the eyes
). Venereal gonorrhea is known to cause conjunctivitis but not vice versa.
I guess it makes sense to stop worrying along these lines and consider an eye check up by an ophthalmologist
if you begin to have redness with discharge in that eye ( for start of antibiotic eye drops). Other wise your symptoms could be due to either viral conjunctivitis ( for which it is enough to use lubricating eye drops such as refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day for a week) or an allergic conjunctivitis ( for which you can use lubricating eye drops along with Alaway eye drops, 1 drop twice a day for 1-2 weeks).
Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.
Thank you and best wishes.
