I'm a 28 yr old male. I have dealt with conjunctivitis in my right eye for about 7 days. Toward the beginning of it I went to urgent care and they diagnosed me with bacterial conjunctivitis and gave me antibiotic drops. 3 days ago, my right eye started to get a solid red color at the same time the left eye was starting to act up. I went to my doctor, got a second opinion, and they thought I might be allergic to the antibiotic drops I was given seeing how red and inflamed my right eye was. I went to an optomologist and they said it was viral conjunctivitis and that it would pass after a week or two. I'm concerned because 1) I was told 3 things by 3 different doctors and 2) my right eye is still pretty red (like a solid red color, more on the right side of the right eye). What else could be going on and what is my next step?View Thread
