Customer Question
ER. Have been using...
I was diagnosed with conjunctivitis last Sunday at the local ER. Have been using an antibiotic (eye drops) regularly since then with good results. I still have slight "weeping" from the eyes; mostly resulting in a.m. crustiness.
I am planning on using the antibiotic till it's empty. How long before I can resume wearing my contact lenses?

Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I am the moderator for this topic. I've been trying to find a professional to assist you, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected, as the professionals come online at varying times. I wonder whether you would like to continue waiting for an answer…hopefully it won’t take too much longer. Please let me know, and I will continue my search. If you’d prefer not to wait, please tell me, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
