My doctor gave me those steroid drops but he said use them

Customer Question

My doctor gave me those steroid drops but he said use them sparingly because it interferes with the healing. It's my eighth day with pink eye and my vision still seems blurred and out of focus

This has no antibiotic in it

You need a drop with an antibiotic if this is pink eye

I would recommend seeing another doctor ASAP

You never answered my initial question. I have blurred vision now as result of the pj k eye. What do I do?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.

I'm not sure it is pink eye.

It could be something worse like iritis

you need to get checked again and probably need antibioics
