Varies.: Blurred vision from a mucopurulent bacterial discharge will usually improve in 2-3 days. A viral conjunctivitis with corneal infiltrates can potentially impair the vision for many months.

Can't say: Likely is ekc which leaves little opacities in the cornea which can affect vision and can last for months. Or, you still may have some mucus in your eyes. You need to see an ophthalmologist if your vision not normal.

Depends: If you have classic adult pink eye, which is viral, then you most likely have one of the viruses lasting 3-10 days with complete resolution. If you have one of the less common viruses which also cause immune deposits on the cornea (ekc) it might last longer and require short to long term topical steroids. The other type does not respond to antibiotics. Your ophthalmologist can diagnosis / treat.
