Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thanks for the question.
You done the right thing by cleaning your hands and card with antibacterial wipes. That is the best way of prevention. However do not worry about getting a pink eye. It is a harmless viral infection which resolves naturally within 4 to 7 days. There is no preventive eye drop medicine for it. So nothing to worry and stay calm.

Yes, there is a possibility of getting an eye infection however remote it can be. No one can predict the chances of infection but all I can say is that it is very very bleak because you took the correct preventive measure of cleaning your hands and card with the wipes. Believe me , we ophthalmologists get to see and examine such patients all around the year but we do not contract the eye infection because we always remember to sanitize our hands after examining each case. That shows how important the use of hand sanitizers is. Be cheerful and don't worry : )
