Possibly: Optometrists, regardless of where they practice, can prescribe certain medications. More importantly, pink eye is a condition that does not respond to current medications because it is viral. There are some conditions that are similar, such as bacterial conjunctivitis and allergies. These can be treated with medication prescribed by an eye doctor.
