There can be a viral infection.
Viral conjunctivitis can affect both eyes.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
You can now apply cold compress.
Artificial tear can be used.
Doctor can write antibiotic drop if he suspects a bacterial infection.
Will a viral infection clear up on its own?
Usually it clears up on its own.
Sometimes antibacterial drop is used to prevent superinfection.
Steroid drop can help to reduce the inflammation.
Can these drops be bought over the counter?
Those are used sometimes depending on the severity of inflammation. Artificial tear can be bought over the counter. Others are prescription medicines.
I have eye drops at home called Isopto Artopine 1%, what is this eye drop used for?
Should I bring it along with me to the doc. tomorrow. Do you think it is something he will say to use?
This will not be suitable now.
This drop is used to dilate pupil in some conditions.
I will visit my doc. tomorrow. Thanks for your help
